"British record companies have released records == both 45s and LPs == with one side recorded with music and the other side recorded with a computer program. The flip side can be run on the specified computers (such as a Sinclair, Apple, or BBC Micro) to display graphics accompanying the music. Loading the program directly from the record is difficult, and errors can be caused by wear or dirt in the grooves, but the program can be recorded onto a cassette tape and loaded into the computer through a cassette recorder."
