I'm a big fan of liner notes. I like having something to read when I'm listening, whether it's intense musicological analysis or Mike Nesmith's recipe for homebrew - a sideways look at where the musician is coming from is just as interesting as intellectual essays.visa tapani wrote:Also, anyone care to recommend AMM liner notes in addition to AMMusic and The Crypt as I'm going to order a bunch of their records and this would probably influence my picks?
However, I think it's odd to make a decision over which albums of a particular artist to buy by which have the best (or most interesting) sleeve notes. Buy Newfoundland and The Inexhaustible Document. For the music.
