Thread Name: To introduce songs, or not, and how?
Subject: RE: To introduce songs, or not, and how?
I dunno about that. I've always felt that introductions really didn't belong on the record itself, they belong in the liner notes (or the little booklet included with a CD). As some folks mention above, when you've heard the same introduction to the same song over and over again, it can begin to pall a bit. Most of the time when I put on a record or CD, all I want to hear are the songs themselves. If I want notes, I'll reach for the record jacket or the insert booklet.
Your mileage may vary
