Recordings that are done in one take without overdubbing are termed "live", even when done in a studio. Studios are built to absorb sound, eliminating reverberationto assist in mixing different takes; other locations, such as concert venues and some "live rooms", Its Happening To You - The Bats - Couchmaster (Vinyl, have reverberation, which creates a "live" sound. With modern recording technologyartists can be recorded in separate rooms or at separate times while listening to the other parts using headphones ; with each part recorded as a separate track.
Album covers and liner notes are used, and sometimes additional information is provided, such as analysis of the recording, and lyrics or librettos. In musical usage the word was used for collections of short pieces of printed music from the early nineteenth century.
When long-playing records were introduced, a collection of pieces on a single record was called an album; the word was extended to other recording media such as compact discMiniDiscCompact audio cassetteand digital albums as they were introduced. An album Latin albuswhitein ancient Rome, was a board chalked or painted white, on which decrees, edicts, and other public notices were inscribed in black.
It was from this that in medieval and modern times album came to denote a book of blank pages in which verses, autographs, sketches, photographs and the like are collected.
In the early nineteenth century "album" was occasionally used in the titles of some classical music sets, such as Schumann 's Album for the Young Opus 68, a set of 43 short pieces.
When 78rpm records came out, the popular inch disc could only hold about three minutes of sound per side, so almost all popular recordings were limited to around three minutes in length. For example, inGeorge Gershwin recorded a drastically shortened version of the seventeen-minute Rhapsody in Blue with Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra. German record company Odeon released the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky in on 4 double-sided discs in a specially designed package.
By aboutbound collections of empty sleeves with a paperboard or leather cover, similar to a photograph album, were sold as record albums that customers could use to store their records the term "record album" was printed on some covers. These albums came in both inch and inch sizes. The covers of these bound books were wider and taller than the records inside, allowing the record album to be placed on a shelf upright, like a book, suspending the fragile records above the shelf and protecting them.
Most albums included three or four records, with two sides each, making six or eight compositions per album. The term "album" was extended to other recording media such as Compact audio cassettecompact discMiniDiscand digital albums, as they were introduced.
An album may contain as many or as few tracks as required. In the United States, The Recording Academy 's rules for Grammy Awards state that an album must comprise a minimum total playing time of 15 minutes with at least five distinct tracks or a minimum total playing time of 30 minutes with no minimum track requirement.
The album Dopesmoker by Sleep contains only a single track, but the composition is over 63 minutes long. There are no formal rules against artists such as Pinhead Gunpowder referring to their own releases under thirty minutes as "albums".
If an album becomes too long to fit onto a single vinyl record or CD, it may be released as a double album where two vinyl LPs or compact discs are packaged together in a single case, or a triple album containing three LPs or compact discs.
Recording artists who have an extensive back catalogue may re-release several CDs in one single box with a unified design, often containing one or more albums in this scenario, these releases can sometimes be referred to as a "two or three -fer"or a compilation of previously unreleased recordings.
These are known as box sets. Some musical artists have also released more than three compact discs or LP records of new recordings at once, in the form of boxed sets, although in that case the work is still usually considered to be an album.
Material music or sounds is stored on an album in sections termed tracks, normally 11 or 12 tracks. A music track often simply referred to as a track is an individual song or instrumental recording. The term is particularly associated with popular music where separate tracks are known as album tracks; the term is also used for other formats such as EPs and singles. When vinyl records were the primary medium for audio recordings a track could be identified visually from the grooves and many album covers or sleeves included numbers for the tracks on each side.
On a compact disc the track number is indexed so that a player can jump straight to the start of any track. On digital music stores such as iTunes the term song is often used interchangeably with track regardless of whether there is any vocal content.
A bonus track also known as a bonus cut or bonus is a piece of music which has been included as an extra. This may LP done as a marketing promotion, or for other reasons. It is not uncommon to include singles as bonus tracks on re-issues of old albums, where those tracks weren't originally included. Online music stores allow buyers to create their own albums by selecting songs themselves; bonus tracks may be included if a customer buys a whole album rather than just one or two songs from the artist.
The song is not necessarily free nor is it available as a stand-alone download, adding also to the incentive to buy the complete album.
In contrast to hidden tracksbonus tracks are included on track listings and usually do not have a gap of silence between other album tracks. Bonus tracks on CD or vinyl albums are common in Japan for releases by European and North American artists; since importing international copies of the album can be cheaper than buying a domestically-released version, Japanese releases often feature bonus tracks to incentivize domestic purchase.
Commercial sheet music are published in conjunction with the release of a new album studio, compilation, soundtrack, etc. A matching folio songbook is a compilation of the music notation of all the songs included in that particular album. It typically has the album's artwork on its cover and, in addition to sheet music, it includes photos of the artist. Vinyl LP records have two sides, each comprising one-half of the album.
If a pop or rock album contained tracks released separately as commercial singlesthey were conventionally placed in particular positions on the album. Today, many commercial albums of music tracks feature one or more singles, which are released separately to radio, TV or the Internet as a way of promoting the album. Double albums during the Seventies were sometimes sequenced for record changers. In the case of a two-record set, for example, sides 1 and 4 would be stamped on one record, and sides 2 and 3 on the other.
The user would stack the two records onto the spindle of an automatic record changer, with side 1 on the bottom and side 2 on the other record on Its Happening To You - The Bats - Couchmaster (Vinyl.
Side 1 would automatically drop onto the turntable and be played. When finished, the tone arm's position Album) trigger a mechanism which moved the arm out of the way, Its Happening To You - The Bats - Couchmaster (Vinyl, dropped the record with side 2, and played it. When both records had been played, the user would pick up the stack, turn it over, and put them back on the spindle—sides 3 and 4 would then play in sequence. It was a further development of the similar Stereo-Pak four-track cartridge created by Earl "Madman" Muntz.
A later quadraphonic version of the format was announced by RCA in April and first known as Quad-8, then later changed to just Its Happening To You - The Bats - Couchmaster (Vinyl. The Compact Cassette was a popular medium for distributing pre-recorded music from the early s to the early s.
