Hidden track

Could someone please introduce me to the person who came up with the Hidden Track idea?

I hate it (it's stupid, pointless, waste of time and space etc.), so I would really like to kick him in a thank you!

This may be a bit coincidental regarding your post previous to this but The Beatles are supposedly the ones who first had the hidden track

Sometimes it makes sense to hide a track... see Travis' "Blue Flashing Light" on The Man Who. Great song, but doesn't match the tone of the rest of the album. But most of the hidden tracks are rubbish and should therefore be hidden in the dustbin of the studio, and not on CDs! ;)
