 EP - LearnThis.Info Enclyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The term EP or E.P. means Extended Play, and is applied to recordings released which are too long to qualify as singles but too short to qualify as albums.
The first recordings released by many punk bands were released in EP format, mainly because the high-energy nature of the genre made it difficult to create sufficient material to fill an LP.
EP may also be used in reference to the European Parliament.

 The Beatles on Vee Jay Records
Vee Jay noticed how popular EPs were in Britain and decided to release four of the 'Introducing The Beatles' tracks ('Misery', 'Taste Of Honey', 'Ask Me Why', and 'Anna') as an EP, with a special cardboard cover, named 'Souvenir Of Their Visit To America' (VJEP 1-903).
Initially, the EP was issued in a cardboard sleeve at the unusually high price of $1.29 on 23 March 1964.
Whether the format, the selections, or the fact that the public was satisfied by already having these songs on previous releases, this EP received little attention, and after this failure, Vee Jay didn't try the EP format again.
