It was pressed on green vinyl and limited to copies, each wrapped in a page cover. Techno artist Jeff Mills released the single for "The Occurrence" on a disc that is a gramophone record on one side, and a compact disc on the other.
Due to space restrictions of the grooves, both songs were mixed as monaural. Children's records — 6-inch Little Golden Records made of bright yellow plastic were a common sight in children's playrooms in the United States from the late s to the early s.
The 78 RPM speed was used for some children's records of all sizes well into the s, as nearly all record players still included it and it allowed an old disused only player to be put to work as a toy, expendable if it got damaged by rough handling. For example, the American magazine National Geographic 's January issue included a 6-inch flexi disc of whale sounds called "Songs of the Humpback Whale.
Early American shellac records — Prior to , Victor introduced 8-inch records to replace their inexpensive 7-inch product, but they were soon discontinued. A similar scenario occurred in Europe for Emerson and Melodiya discs. Priced at 10 cents, they were replaced by a inch Electradisk later that year, priced at 20 cents. In other areas, flexi discs were usually square and often included in a magazine see Unusual materials below.
Early American shellac records — Prior to , nine-inch brown shellac records were issued under the Zon-O-Phone label. The record featured two songs on the first side, and an etching of the album's promotional logo a coiled centipede on the second side. Each record had a capacity of about 40 minutes per side. Underground hardcore punk bands in the s started releasing EPs on all sizes of vinyl including 13 inches in size. Early American shellac records — Between and , American companies made recordings of inch records that played at the unusual speed of 60 RPM.
Radio stations also made their own inch lacquer "acetate" disc recordings in-house to delay the broadcast of live network feeds or to prerecord some of their own local programming.
These "standard groove" discs used roughly the same large groove dimensions and spacing found on 78 RPM records and typically played for about 15 minutes per side, with very good fidelity—when heard over the air, indistinguishable from live to a casual, but not to a critical listener. Old inch turntables are sometimes still found in radio broadcast studios, but it is now very unlikely that any disc larger than inch will ever be played on them.
However, as no recording lathe can engrave a record accurately at such a slow speed, in actuality the disc was mastered at four-times speed or 16 RPM with the program material similarly being played at quadruple speed. Audiobooks for the blind. In , experiments were conducted by the American Printing House for the Blind in cooperation with the American Foundation for the Blind to create extra-high density discs so that a book or magazine could be contained on fewer records.
However, with mastering facilities of the period only going as low as 16 RPM, the quadruple-speed mastering required to get a playback speed of 4 RPM was deemed to have an insufficient audio quality. The highest successful density tested for in the experiment was 10 hours on one side of a inch disc although it was surmised by engineers that this could be extended to 12 hours per side if needed.
No books or periodicals were ever produced in the format, and it is not known if any of the experimental discs survive into the modern age. One inch record holds four hours of speech with the inch variety holding six hours and the 7-inch variety holding roughly 90 minutes. These discs were made of thin plastic and were literally flexible, similar to an overhead projector transparency sheet. The first magazine to be circulated widely in the flexible disc format to blind individuals was U.
Cassette tapes proved to be a far more popular format for such spoken content. Some manufacturers of very low-speed discs such as Highway Hi-Fi used shallow and narrow "ultra-microgrooves," requiring a 0. Of course music can be art, but in physical terms it can also be art beyond the music. And no other format highlights that quite like vinyl.
The history of vinyl is strewn with artistic endeavour, just as it is gimmickry and perceptibly aimless experimentation. Whatever you make of it all is probably up to you. Limited to copies, this 2-inch EP — the smallest dedicated vinyl record we can find — contains ten-second songs from six Southampton and Portsmouth punk bands. On the face of it that could sound senseless beyond the merit of its absurdity, but plenty of bands come to mind whose songs would benefit from being truncated to a fraction of a minute.
It all becomes decidedly less experimental as you enhance the scale. You could hypothetically configure a setup to play a disc of any size — and, of course, the more grooves a record can house, the longer you can make it play.
This was of particular benefit to film companies for accompanying early talking pictures, and to radio for broadcasting pre-recorded programmes — both regularly used 16in discs, and perhaps even larger.
His band mates here had played with everyone from Marvin Gaye to Pharoah Sanders to Bob Dylan; this is stellar, and this is a first-time vinyl reissue! Rudolph Johnson. The announcement also confirms the master recordings of all three albums were remastered at Abbey Road Studio and will come with the original artwork on the packaging. The National marks the start point for one of the best bands of their generation with it's new master helping elevate it to new levels.
A great primer to a great band. Cherry Tree Remaster - Released a year before The National broke through with their third album Alligator, 's Cherry Tree EP is a thrilling record which -thanks to it's collection of delicate ballads and anthemic crowd-pleasers -sums up what they do best in under 30 minutes.
Now a firm fan-favourite, among Cherry Tree's seven tracks are now National classics 'About Today' and 'All The Wine', plus a thrilling live version of 'Murder Me Rachael' that reminds of the band's fearsome early live performances. With word of mouth now spreading on the band, critics proved equally enthusiastic.
Pitchfork in their glowing review called it a "Gorgeous train wreck" that "Lives up to it's blunt title with Matt Berninger's self-effacing barbs matched by the band's equally potent hooks," while Uncut also became early champions saying the album was "A genuine treasure Livid as a bruise, this is brave, desperate, beautiful music.
