Well... while not quite digital, a classis example of LP as data
transport is one of Tomita's albums (can't recall which one at this
precise moment) which has a message embedded in one of the tracks.

All one needs to extract it is a Tarbell S-100 Cassette Interface and the
appropriate cables. <G>

I did it some many years back. Don't recall the message content but it
was amusing. Still have the album... and the board... Hmmm...
