Wall, The (Pink Floyd) Easter Egg - Secret Backwards Message in the Wall (Corrected!)
This is a correction of another similar egg I've already sent...
1- Put on Record 1, Side 2 (Yes, the vinyl record. Sorry, I don't think this works with the CD or the cassette...but see the PS below.)
2- Play track 2 (Empty Spaces) and stop it (i.e. stop the turntable) immediately before Roger Waters starts singing (about 1 minute 2 seconds after the beginning)
3- Now comes the hard part. Without re-starting the turntable, spin the record backwards (with your fingers, with your hands, with your head...anyhow you like!) at (approximately) the right speed, 33 RPM. (Doing this while the record is spinning normally is much more difficult. Trust me!)
4- You should hear, amidst the guitar notes, a very low-pitched voice saying: "Congratulations. You've just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the Funny Farmhouse". This was obviously recorded backwards INTENTIONALLY.
PS: I know this is hard to do with the record, but I also know that there are some machines that can sample that part and play it backwards.
There also is a very good sample of it on www.triplo.com/ev/reversal. Only trouble is that the sample is in AIFF format...
Spread the word and
if you like this Egg!

The Wall LP (not the CD!) and a good pair of headphones
