What does the term 'EP' mean in music?
EP stands for "extended play" as EP records are longer than original single 45 records, usually containing 4 tracks. Artists usually release an EP before the full album to give the fans a taste of what is coming. The EP may include anywhere from 2 to 10 songs depending on the length of the full album.
A good example of an EP containing 4 tracks was the Beatles' 'Twist and Shout (EP)'. The EP format is also used as a low-cost way of showcasing new artists.
Historically, EP records were often similar to seven inch single records but played at 33 1/3 rpm rather than 45 rpm.
The term EP can mean 'electro-plate', which is a characteristic of the metal in which the stone is set. EP is also used to identify cutting tools used to draw designs in metals, where one of the characteristics of the tool is a diamond-shaped stylus. EP is not a term usually associated with a diamond stone.
"Cantabile" is a musical term that means "As if sung." More importantly, it does not mean sung in a punchy fashion, but more of a flowing opera song, which was the rock music of the time that this term was made. The musical term "Cantabile" is commonly mistaken for the spelling, "Contabile" which, in Italian means "Accountant."
