Has anybody else noticed in any LP recordings a “reverse echo” occurring, where you can just barely hear the audio that will be playing in a few seconds? My guess is that this is bleed from reel to reel windings that they may have used as a master before cutting the record. Anybody else picked up on this or have any insights? Maybe I will try to see if I can find some audio as an example.
My guess is that it could not possibly be from the actual playback of the LP, due to the dynamics of the way an LP works. The only other time I have ever encountered anything like this is when I was mastering recordings from old cassette tapes where the layers had bled through creating much the same effect.
