My suggestion for hiding tracks on a CD? Don't.

Let me just chime in on the side against hidden tracks. I love the
tracks, but I hate the fact that they're hidden. Call 'em bonus
tracks and slap them on at the end. Don't make us muck about with
silence at the end of an album or a track that I have to rewind to
before track 1. If you don't want us to hear it, don't put it on the
disc. If you do want us to hear it, put it there and let us access
it. Hidden tracks were cool & clever fifteen years ago. Now, I just
want to listen to the music.

Todd, feeling like a curmudgeon this morning. :)
