Nothing new there, but - having considered the nature of inner groove distortion, and that Bolero begins softly and builds to its ending climax - they produced the record to play backwards. Start with the stylus on the inner run-out groove, so the record plays from the inside of the disc to the outside. Interesting for the vinyl aficionados, I guess.
