absolute classic of a fade-out (with zero more minutes to go):

You're right, the 2005 cover threw me off.

fade-in, during which the piano emerges into the left foreground, then fade-out except the (possibly overdubbed) piano which then awkwardly attempts a transition into the next track at c. 1:40

instrumental fade-out except for 1 guitar to guide the vocals, then fade-back-in because second coming, then it all vanishes into the distance

thanks! that's really interesting in its boringness, the only way out of the basic set-up but not part of it, and the only aspect of the piece that's not radical at all.

here's something more bonkers, a fade-out on laughter put through echo and delay effects (you can read that as a steve reich reference) as a delightfully silly illustration of the "smiling faces" (that show no traces of the evil that lurks within) now turning into devilish laughs.

no fade-out, but kind of the blaxploitative answer to the western above

some shocking fade out despotism by the leader. well-worn genre, but the records sounds especially great, there's spaces everywhere. except no space for pre-elevator eric gale on electric guitar, who throughout the record usually gets faded out at the mere suspicion of a solo. which is a pity because he could cook up a storm in the late 60s. no wonder he turned to snooze.

long time no fade-out ... here's a very pretty one, triggered by the singer's hummed downward phrase

we've had this strategy before on a grant green funk record, studio fade-outs combined with canned applause, but here it's even more pure: a somewhat overproduced gillespie album from 69 repackaged as a "live" recording in 77 with a courteous clap track that sounds totally out of place (plus these are obviously not live recordings anyway) yet still gives the record an extra vibe

Been sleeping on this thread, here's a great one from a classic album, and file it into the subgenre of mid song fade out and fade back in, only to later fade out for good.

The following track on this album also fades, much to my chagrin.

thanks for those! the roxy one is at the end of a side, so that's less surprising than the koerner/murphy at the start of side b. that second workman fade-out you're mentioning makes no sense at all! (and wow, that steely dan track is unlistenable :P )

oh and i just reminded myself of this here record. the a side is a beatles suite with a handful of very considered fade-outs and sometimes fun interludes (here echoplexed bass clarinet), excellent throughout (contrary to our previous jazzed-up beatles experiences on this thread)
