/// Inside-Out Cut on A Side ///
Here cutting of the groove is begun near the center of the disk, or near the label; the groove is then cut so that it spirals outward toward the outer edge of the disk.
This does not mean that the disk rotates in reverse; rather, at the beginning of playback the stylus must be positioned near the center of the disk, where the end of the recording on that side of the disk would normally be found.
What is the purpose of an inside-out cut?
If a production designed for one side of a phonograph disk begins moderately or quite softly and develops so that it has the greatest intensity at the end, the playback quality could be higher if an inside-out cut is used.
