Instrumentation Credits

haveing recently purchased AAM, I noticed that the credits mentioning each musician and what they play were all on the last page of the album cover, instead of immediately after their respective song. to me this was a bit disappointing, as (I hope this doesn't sound lazy) I like to see who was playing what for each song, and having everyone listed after those songs is the quickest way to check.

...at least, I think so...

so I thought, "is it just me who likes to do that? am I being lazy? is it just as quick to seach the credits at the end as it is to look at them directly after the song?"

what do you all think...? Roll Eyes

okay, I see that this was a bit of a pointless poll after all...my apologies.

thankyou, however, to the other person who voted for the 'seperately' option, whoever you are!

if no one else replies to this within a couple of weeks or so, I guess I'll delete it(?)
Thankyou, Anxious.
rejection is one of my greatest fears Frowner I absolutely HATE IT! FrownerMadFrowner so I'm glad you replied to this post.

what was your previous explination? do you think I'm being lazy or fussy?

Well my reason for choosing Seperately is because, as the song ebbs out and the new is starting I like to read who played, and which instruments. It's much more difficult to flick through the pages. But of course it saves some space and paper to gather it all at the end. Hurray for saving trees!! (and other expenses in producing the cover).

This depents on what you've planed to give me! Big Grin :F
Hi Jesse,
I'm sorry not to have answered earlier, it's a funny posting, actually.
I have voted 'separately' as it would be quicker to read each musician's name soon after each song; however the credits page is the last one as to 'rules' or 'habit' and so all musicians are listed on the last page. I am lazy, I don't like leafing through the booklet to and fro to try to figure out what is song 5 where musician x is palying his instrument etc..but the world goes like this.

actually, if you list the credits immedietly after the song, you'll save yourself a whole page at the end! they don't take up that much space, and besides, I think Loreena said in the cover of An Ancient Muse that there simply wasn't enough room to thank everyone she needed to. if she put the instrumentation credits seperately after each song, she would have more room to thank those people!
This topic amuses me. I had to go with the 'I ain't bovverd' (lol!) choice because I've become used to finding Loreena's liner notes listing all performers and instruments played on each song at the very end of a CD's enclosed booklet.

It takes up far less space to do it that way. A long time ago, I learned to read through all the liner notes before I ever listened to a CD when it was new to me. Of course, my short-term memory being 'what it isn't' these days means that now, I must frequently go back and re-read those credits if I want to try remembering who is playing what. Wink

So much for 'growing older, but not smarter', I guess. Confused

hi Jesse

Yes you're right about AAM.
There is free space after almost every "poem" in the AAM booklet.

And you mentioned my other reason for wanting the instrumentation credits seperately.
It's always nice to read the artist thanks to all that helped, for inpiration and whatever reason that made the album come alive.
