When it doesn't fit anywhere else

I suppose this question may be better posted on some computer forum, but since this seems to be a big issue with Dead albums I thought I pose the question to this group.

I have a lot of music on my MP3 player and I like to throw in a good mix of songs in random mode sometimes, but I get pissed off when it splits a "China/Rider" into China and Rider, with the song splitting mid-jam. This is even worse when you have a "He's Gone> Truckin'> Nobody's Fault But Mine> Jam> The Other One> Jam> Stella Blue" for example.

Does anybody know of any software that I could use to combine these 2 files into one big MP3? Maybe there's some good software out there that can record the songs this way straight from the CD.

Anybody else have this problem? Any tips?

I use Goldwave. The demo program is fee. Simply open both mp3 files and cut and past one to the end of the other and save. I do it all the time because I often play tunes in random mode and hate when China cat ends and there is no rider.
