I actually have the three discs you mention along with Stevie Wonder's Songs In the Key Of Life (and Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left on back order).
I have to say, I'm bemused as to why there is no standardised disc authoring method for this new High Fidelity Pure Audio disc format. For example....
Breakfast In America and Songs In The Key Of Life, have one continuous data stream on the disc. Like this: -
While Grrr! and Back To Black, have their tracks separated into individual data streams on the disc. Like this: -
Also, Back To Black offers a 'named' track list, while the other disc's offer only a 'number' track list.
Why is there no consistency here?!
