TIL about 3-sided records. Feel like a n00b.

Do you own any?

Here's a list of some

I remember the Joe Jackson one.

Pretty sure the Joe Jackson is stashed away somewhere..

I would have sworn there was a Sonic Youth album with an etched fourth side… but clearly old age is getting it confused with another album  :'(

Huh. That's not what I thought it meant.

The way it was explained to me is that side 2 has 2 independent grooves, so depending on which you play, you get a different set of tunes. I.e., side B has 2 different track lists.

Might have some Detroit Techno 12”s that have that feature, they got up all sorts with their pressing.  Some even featured locked grooves. 

I’ve definitely got one 12” that plays inside out - King Kurt “Destination Zululand”

Ah, okay. Christian Marclay mentioned a horse race game record with multiple grooves. It was probably this one.
