Joe_F The first long play album ever released (20) RE: The first long play album ever released 30 May 18

The (78-rpm) record albums that I remember from my childhood (1940s) were not mere boxed sets, but consisted of sleeves bound together on one side, whence they resembled photograph albums etc. When LPs came in, I supposed that the practice of calling individual discs "albums" referred to the fact that they contained as much music as albums in the old sense. I thought it was silly.
