Side B plays from the inside out (starts at the label)

Years ago a previous co worker would make recordings at F1 races and play the cassette in his car own while driving!

I've owned this LP for over 50 years....

For each song, there are two versions on different sides of the groove. If you played it with the balance control in its flat position you'd hear a pop version of, say, How High The Moon through the left speaker and, on the right, the jazz version of the same song (actually, in this case, a tune that Charlie Parker wrote called Orinthology* that was based on the chord changes of How High The Moon). If you preferred a different mix, you simply adjusted the balance control to bring out more of the pop version or more of the jazz version.

On the 'Pop' side of the groove some of the best classically-trained studio musicians of the day were featured; the 'Jazz' side of the groove featured Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter, Freddy Hubbard, etc. A one-of-a-kind album that requires a balance control to appreciate its ingenuity. Ultimate separation between the grooves was pretty remarkable. Turn the balance all the way to the right and the Pop version (which featured mostly strings) almost disappeared. Turn the balance all the way to the left and you were left pretty well with the jazz version.

The album shows up at used record stores occasionally. I know, because I recently purchased a copy for my son-in-law. The only caveat as mentioned above is that you do need a balance control.

*For the musicologists out there, the tune Orinthology is an example of a 'contrafact' i.e. (to quote Wikipedia) ""a newly created melody written over the chord progression of another song"

:D The Rutles on vinyl. Check them out. Cheese and Onions is one of their best :lol: songs. Quite a superb parody of the Beatles.
