Just realized something:
LPs have sides 1 & 2
~unless you’re R.E.M. and name them things like:
chronic town & poster torn — chronic town
L & R — reckoning (hence the title of that long video, ‘Left of Reckoning’)
A side & Another side — fables of the reconstruction
dinner & supper — lifes rich pageant
page & leaf - document
post & script - dead letter office
early & late - eponymous
air & metal - green
time & memory - out of time
us & them - best of R.E.M. (UK)
drive & ride - automatic for the people
c & d - monster
hi & fi - new adventures in hi-fi
up & down - up
chorus & ring - reveal
45s* and Cassettes have sides A & B
~*hence the term “B-side” for stray cuts
CDs have only the right or the wrong side.
~unless it’s one of those short-lived DualDiscs which have a DVD layer on the other side.
The differences between these naming conventions has never occurred to me before.
