What do you do when confronted with songs that fade straight into other songs or leave so little space to make it impossible to record a song without getting a split second of the next one?

(1) don't put them on mix tapes
(2) fade em in(/out)
(3) or else just gotta be super alert at the pause button....cut off at a opportune moment & go straight into the next song w/ no silence between.

I usually just go "oh well that's life". I must be a terrible mixtaper!

eight months pass...
I make maximum use of the pause button. Alternatively i think of it as a challenge, a rudimentary exericse in the art of mixing.

I'm getting into cutting fades off pretty ruthlessly and forcing tracks into each other thuswise, but then I am a dick

Depends on the song, sometimes I'll do a manual fade out like on Rocketship's "Hey Hey Girl" which goes straight into the next song. Or sometimes I'll just cut it.

I've gotten really good with my current tape deck at minimizing the space between songs, to the point where it can almost sound professionally segued. I'm sure there are recipients of my tapes cursing me now for making their 'skip' function useless.

Now all I need is a turntable I can cue ...

two years pass...
I'm with duane (hgfdhgfhh@£$7ytr8.bn)... my tape player crapped out on me... haven't made a mixtape in some time now. Definitely need to get a new one, just ain't got a pot to piss in at the moment. But once I do? Oh, I've got some tricks up my sleeve! Who wants some action?
