The Stereo Long-Playing (LP) Record

  • John Eargle

Abstract

The Stereo LP is rapidly declining in sales due to the immense success of the compact disc. Since 1947 to the present, however, the LP has represented a long period of compatibility between product and players in the history of consumer audio, exceeded only by the era of the 78-rpm disc in the early part of this Century.
