I loaded Sheryl Crow’s Detours and on both of our units as a song ends then the next just stars i will hear 1sec of the last song played then all is well till the end of the song…Any one else have this CD in there units?
Happened to see this CD in the library today while I was perusing for my own collection. Picked it up and scanned it briefly in WMP. Can’t say I heard exactly what you are describing, but there are a few tracks that sort of run into the next (no definite stop - pause - start of next track). The end of Track #2 blends into the start of Track #3 by about 1/2 - 1 second. Same with Track #2 over-running into Track #3. You don’t really notice it if the songs are being played/heard in track order, but if your shuffle is on, the beginning of these tracks are going to sound weird with the leftovers from the other tracks at the beginning.
A simple edit in Audacity (or other music/sound file-editing software)will clear this up. I couldn’t tell if this was intentional or just sloppy editing in the mastering process when creating the CD. This kind of ‘blending’ was popular a few decades back with more than just a few artists, and it saved you from hearing the pops, dust & static in the silence between the tracks while listening to the old vinyl LP’s. And that was OK then, because you played a record from start to finish, flipped it over, then played the other side. It was too much of a hassle to listen to just 1 or 2 tracks (especially if they weren’t in consecutive order), because you’d have to get up, stumble over to the turntable, lift or raise the tone arm and set it back down 'ever so gently’ and try to hit the space between the tracks and also try to do it perfectly vertical, so you wouldn’t scratch the record with the stylus and hear all the noise involved with that. Definitely NOT user-friendly! Plus the fact that more times than not, there was a distinct cloud in the air (and most likely your brain too) that affected your vision and motor skills (if you get my drift)
With shuffle mode and picking & choosing individual tracks to listen to these days, thankfully that form of recording isn’t done much today, so it’s not a big issue. But every once in a while you run into it, like on this album. I noticed also, that there’s a very abrupt ending to Track #11; no fade-out or hint that the song is about to end. Again, I don’t know whether this was planned, but I think it’s just a matter of sloppy editing; sure sounds like it anyway.
And I’ve never heard so much ‘verbal counting’ on one album before! Was Sheryl recording with a bunch of blithering idiots? Didn’t she think they could pick up the beat? I don’t mind an occasional “One, two . . . one, two, three, four” at the beginning of a song, but 3 times on 1 album? Come on Sheryl, you’ve been at this a while now. Hopefully your studio musicians have too. This REALLY isn’t necessary. In fact, I found it irritating!
