I've never really read this thread, but I obviously knew about it.....I saw something to post in here, so since I did not read through the plethora of posts, it might already be here.....if so....sorry.

Quote:
Bob Weir: <SNIP irrelevant> they wanted us to shorten them up and put more songs on the record. This was back in the days of vinyl discs, so we had time considerations. You could really only get 18 minutes a side, so a record could only be like 36 minutes. If you exceeded 36 minutes—I guess you guys probably don't remember this, but if you exceeded 36 minutes, the grooves on the record had to be narrower…

Plugged In: …groove cramming, right?...

Bob Weir: …yeah, and so you didn't get any level out of it. So if you put it on in a stack of records, it would be noticeably quieter, so nobody wanted to do that.

50 minutes! 20 great hits!

Groove cramming:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Get_Happy! ... ello_album)

The original release of the album was on 12-inch vinyl and cassette. It was unusual for a single vinyl record to contain as many as twenty songs because it was thought that what was known in the industry as "groove cramming" would result in a loss of sound quality. Get Happy's producer, Nick Lowe, mentions this issue on the album's back cover:

'You'll have noticed that there are ten (?) tracks on each side of this, Elvis' new LP, making it a real "long player".
Elvis and I talked long and hard about the wisdom of taking this unusual step and are proud that we can now reassure hi-fi enthusiasts and/or people who never bought a record before 1967 that with the inclusion of this extra music time they will find no loss of sound quality due to "groove cramming" as the record nears the end of each face (i.e. the hole in the middle).

Now get happy.

Your friend,

Producer, Nick Lowe'[3]
