Default seeburg disco plays backward ?

I know I've had this problem before but can't remember what fixed it.
I've got a 78 seeburg disco that plays the records backwards .....not
every time but most of the time. I try to listen for "Paul is dead"
"Paul is dead" but nope sorry. Can anybody refresh my memory on what
causes that?
Thanks in advance PH

Don't know what system they use in seeburg, but
usually what you describe is caused by motor start capacitor going
bad,

or (with some types of motor) the wiring is incorrect.
Unless this happened after you did a rewire, replaced a motor or
associated part,
the cap seems a safe bet.

As for "hidden messages" in songs played backwards, the only example I
have found
(quite by accident) is the record "how to dance" by "bingoboys"
play the very beginning backwards. Where he says "here comes the
music" -
in reverse sounds quite clearly as "just like a migrane"
(this is not a joke).

if you have a media player or sound editing program that can go
backwards, and could be
bothered going to the trouble of trying, i'm sure an MP3 version would
do the same.

I main thing I can think of is the assembly that the tone arm is in
has gummed up and can't slide between the A and B side. There could be
another problem but try that one first.

I own a disco (along with several other jukes) and I am surprised how
many people like the design - I usualy like things that other people
don't like.

Good luck
