You CAN make album sides that long but you will have to pay for it  
with thinner grooves and an overall quieter record. It's the "Get  
Happy" rule.

 From the Chicago Mastering Service website (http:// 

"As a side gets longer, grooves must become thinner (i.e. quieter) to  
fit on the side........ as you come down in level, you move toward  
the noise floor of the medium and the pops and clicks usually present  
in a manufactured record will be much louder relative to the music. "
