I have to echo wade's annoyance at track proliferation. Since I get a
lot of stuff from emusic. I don't mind if they break something that's
longer than ten minutes into a couple of tracks, because then I can get
a piece that would otherwise be "album only" ("If you want this one
track, you have to buy the whole album for it!"), but it's getting to be
a joke. I was counting how many tracks they split the first Rachmaninoff
piano sonata into and lost count. It was three or four per movement.
It brings to mind a cheesy 60s TV ad campaign (US) for "Joey Chips, the
corny potato chips" where the potato chip stood in front of a presumed
audience and told jokes. My favorite one was: "My hotel's nice enough,
but they're so hungry for tips — I called Room Service for a deck of
cards, and the bellboy made 52 trips!"
"You're all Out of your Skulls! / You're cracked, you're batty, you're
flipped! / Why are grownups like you / Listening to / The Corny Potato
