Remember any info that is picked up from the needle is going to be replayed. Even small bumps pressing threw from the other side.
On some early RCA pressings we could actually hear the other side. There are so many strange funny things in the world of vinyl. The ...I think they were called something like flexies for short. They were mid seventies pressings which were so thin and not totally black vinyl, you could see threw em.
I'm not talking about those disks that came with magazines, These were regular records that maybe to cut cost were made really thin. Maybe the name was Dynagroove?.
Edit: The labels we could hear the other side looked actually like this RCA.
