I agree, Laura. The good thing (there were several downsides) about the LP format was that it offered a design that encouraged good cover photography or art/design and that the space lent itself to extensive cover and liner notes. Ah, the way some of those people could write about music! I wish album downloads came with a text file of the notes, where there are any notes.
Dave Sager is to be congratulated on his fairly extensive notes on The Complete Wolverines CD, along with a good discography.
