to quantify...

(and try to one up seeking :dazed: )

 

most singles are two or three songs and under ten minutes.

The single was usualy pressed on 7" wax.

An ep is usually 1/2 an hour with 6ish tracks.

An LP is about the legnth of a CD. (just a short CD .. 50-65 minutes)

Both were usually pressed on 12"

You may find singles on 12".. but generally they're 45 rpm.

Way back when... the 'Album' was an EP.

But people always want more.. so the LP took over.

Most people prefer the legnth of the LP to the superior quality of the EP.

 

I am an audiophlie. (as in I like woofers!)

not so my friend. perhaps in the past that was the case, but now a days almost all domestic 12"s are 33, and the majority of imported 12"s are as well...

bite it!

 

When I used to buy drum'n'bass compulsively,

I found that most (3:4) of my 'single' would be 12" 45rpm

and have 1track on a. 1 or 2 on aa. Just how it turned out.

I'm sure it depends on where most of the pressing is done.

ZESTO!

 

Most Drum and Bass and Jungle is pressed at 45rpm for some strange reason unknown to me. So I guess the only 12" 45rpmers are mostly club related.

 

I have seen some records that were pressed at 45rpm by accident.

 

I love vynl, my room smells all musty.

ummm... in my experience most english and jamaican pressings of 12"s are 45rpm... in the british case, even most of the hip hops are 45s, but that's less the case now than with classic era hip hop records. everybody's trying to be more hip hop and american now. ;) haha. no, but have plenty of original english pressings on like jive and even def jam and shit that are 45rpm.

i gotta put my 2 cents in....

the rhyme was condensed in a matter of minutes so it must be told...

all that glitter's not gold...

hell yeah for homophobia that has NO backing!!!!!!

farris is not gay, i've talked to him, he's just into the sensitive scene, and nothing is wrong w/ pink, its an incredible color for fills, and it takes a hell of a lot more balls to rock a pink shirt than it does to talk smack about a guy who wears hearts.

you two are fucking retarded

what the fuck are you talking about?

 

if its records youre talking about... you got the big ones that your pops has in the attic (heart, blondie, twisted sister, the beatles, ted nugent, steely dan, fleetwood mac etc etc) they are big, they have many songs. and you have the small albums, they are small, with fewer songs. and have a smaller package. theres your difference, with out this fancy dj slang.
