Who would have thought that vinyl would come back big time! So what is the difference between a single record and a LP?
The most common form of the vinyl single is the 45 or 7-inch. The names are derived from its play speed, 45 rpm, and the standard diameter, 7 inches (18 cm).The 7-inch 45 rpm record was released 31 March 1949 by RCA Victor as a smaller, more durable and higher-fidelity replacement for the 78 RPM shellac discs. The first 45 rpm records were monural, with recordings on both sides of the disc.
Terms such as “long-play” (LP) and “extended-play” (EP) describe multi-track records that play much longer than the single-item-per-side records, which typically do not go much past four minutes per side. An LP can play for up to 30 minutes per side, though most played for about 22 minutes per side, bringing the total playing time of a typical LP recording to about forty-five minutes. Many pre-1952 LPs, however, played for about 15 minutes per side.
However, at the end of the day , what can be more entertaining than listening to the ‘crackle’ of an old vintage record!
