HI Peter
IIRC the official limit to a CD length is 74:21 minutes. By pitching the 
tracks closer than the red book spec it is possible to make a cd longer. 
The longest cd I have is almost 83 minutes long (Mahler with the Israeli 
Philharmonic). Most cd players will cope with this but not all. Computer 
drives are usually not as old as some cd players so they have less wear 
and less dirt on their lenses and can read some discs better.
Cheers
Shai
