Hidden Tracks on Vinyl

Recommended Posts

Could you really hide a track on a vinyl album? And if so, were they called "hidden tracks"?

On CD, you can do all sorts of digital trickery, but you can actually see the grooves on a record.

A few examples I can think of where something like this was done:

1) The Clash "Train In Vain" - not on the tracklisting, the but the song was there.

2) Joe Walsh - not sure of the song, but after a while, he says something like "here come the wah-wahs" and something that sounds like a flock of seagulls (the birds, not the band) comes in.

3) The Beatles did something with the runout groove I believe.

there was something on a Pink Floyd album, I think the Wall, where if you played it backwards it says, "Congratulations, you've found the hidden message, please send a post card to" and it gave the name and address of their guy who was committed. Or something like that. I wouldn't have believed that story, but I heard it myself when a crazed Floyd fan played it for me. Hence, my aversion to everything Floyd.
