yes, it was a greatest hits edit. nobody knows why... it's stupid... maybe the album was full and they needed half a second.

Back in the olden days you could only fit 72 minutes of music on a cd.

GH2 is 71:59 - I guess they edited it down perfectly!

The upper limit for commercial CDs was supposed to be 71:59
but i have a thin lizzy compilation from about 1989 that weighs in at 81:38 - how the fuck did they do that?

Possibly a lower sample rate in places where it was not noticable. Can you even do that with a CD, or is it locked at 44100?

I thought the CD limit was 74minutes..then later 79minutes

Michael Jacksons 1991 release, Dangerous was 77minutes.

I thought GH2 was 75mins
