An album is a collection of audio recordings issued as a collection on compact disc (CD), vinyl, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century as individual 78-rpm records collected in a bound book resembling a photograph album; this format evolved after 1948 into single vinyl LP records played at ​33 1⁄3 rpm. Vinyl LPs are still issued, though album sales in the 21st-century have mostly focused on CD and MP3 formats. The audio cassette was a format used alongside vinyl from the 1970s into the first decade of the 2000s.

An album may be recorded in a recording studio (fixed or mobile), in a concert venue, at home, in the field, or a mix of places. The time frame for completely recording an album varies between a few hours to several years. This process usually requires several takes with different parts recorded separately, and then brought or “mixed” together.

Album covers and liner notes are used, and sometimes additional information is provided, such as analysis of the recording, and lyrics or librettos. Historically, the term “album” was applied to a collection of various items housed in a book format. In musical usage the word was used for collections of short pieces of printed music from the early nineteenth century. Later, collections of related 78rpm records were bundled in book-like albums(one side of a 78 rpm record could hold only about 3.5 minutes of sound).

R. Kelly Turns Himself In Hours After Being Charged With Sexual Abuse.

Published

R. Kelly has turned himself in to the authorities, nearly seven hours after being charged with sexual abuse.

The singer-songwriter was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Illinois' Cook County on Friday afternoon. Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that the star has since been taken into police custody in reference to the alleged crimes and is expected to appear in court on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier this morning, it was revealed in documents that there are four alleged victims, with nine of Kelly's counts involving alleged victims ranging in age from 13 to 16. TMZ reported that in a grand jury hearing in Chicago, two women alleged that the famous singer had sex with minors and reportedly turned over physical evidence to prosecutors.

However, Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg alleges that Cook County State Attorney Kimberly M. Foxx "succumbed to public pressure" and thus charged the singer with the alleged crimes. He insists that the "Ignition" singer is "an innocent man."

"I think all the women are lying," Greenberg said during a press conference on Friday evening.

Moreover, Greenberg alleged that the charges against Kelly constitute a double jeopardy. He claimed in the press conference, "One of the charges appears to involve the same alleged victim from the earlier case, and double jeopardy should power that case. He won that case. The jury heard the facts in that case."

It has been just weeks since the Lifetime docu-series revealed years of allegations of sexual misconduct against the 52-year-old. Since then, people across the country have voiced their hopes to get justice for the alleged victims.

R. Kelly has consistently denied any allegations of abuse or misconduct over the years.
