"Records" or "vinyl"? **Major rant alert!** You've been warned :)

Recommended Posts

Have you heard [insert artist name]'s new CD? This is rife in all mainstream media, when they should be calling it a recording.

Just like the guy from Holland who used to speak Dutch when he lived in The Netherlands then.

:)

He may have been in The Netherlands but not in Holland.

Fair enough.

But the British guy from The United Kingdom speaks English, right?

:unsure:

He probably has a large record collection as well.

Most of which are vinyl albums.....

I don't care what people call them as long as they don't call them 'vinyls'

I believe that the term album comes from the time when there were no long playing records and a recording had to be imprinted onto several or many shellac discs (disks?) and enclosed in a box or hinged 'album'.

Perhaps therefore a collection of recorded tunes cannot be called an album unless it is a multi-disc or box set.

"

A gramophone record (phonograph record in American English) or vinyl record, commonly known as "a record", is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat polyvinyl chloride (previously Shellac) disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. Phonograph records are generally described by their diameter in inches (12", 10", 7"), the rotational speed in rpm at which they are played (331â„3, 45, 78), and their time capacity resulting from a combination of those parameters (LP − long playing, SP − single, EP − 12" single or extended play); their reproductive quality or "fidelity" ("high fidelity", "orthophonic", "full-range", etc.), and the number of audio channels provided ("mono", "stereo", "quad", etc.)."

So it is a record since the term gramophone is redundant.

 

(331â„3, 45, 78) relate to how fast they play.

 

The terms:

 

LP − long playing, SP − single, EP − 12" single or extended play

 

Relate to how long they play.

 

Vinyl is what they are made out of (previously Shellac).

There's a reason they don't allow Wikipedia articles in academia...

How do you say vinyls in Gaelic?

It'd be a very long word no doubt.

Impossible to pronounce.

They are ahead of us. They don't have such a term:

or Yorkshire ! Which sounds like English ....but isn't!!

 

I am an oldie and use the term vinyl so that when I'm talking to normal people, they might understand what I'm on about. I look on it as a slang term.

My "dealer" also uses the V word and he is roughly my age. Probably because people come to his shop and ask for an album. His response: "CD or vinyl?"

Sure but is that how you refer to them?

And by that statement, do you only refer to your 7" and 12" singles as records based on the speed of roation?

Also, is "inFerior wall cladding" a typo or your opinion?

:lol:

One is retiring to the sittingroom where one will be rotating selected microgroove phonographic recordings on one's gramophone.
