EmArcy EP 6000 Series (7-inch)

[EmArcy EP Label]

After Columbia's 10-inch/12-inch LP release in 1948 as a follower of SP, 7-inch 45rpm EP was firstly introduced by RCA Victor in 1949. After a decade, LP was treated mainly for “albums” and EP for “singles”, but in its introduction EP was also treated and released as a variation of “albums”.

EmArcy also released a number of 45rpm EP albums. All came with hard cardboard-type sleeve (like LPs), and with our later eyes they looks like Japanese papersleeve CDs :) Yes EP album's jacket has unique and characteristic atmosphere. Each EP holds one or two tunes on each side, and two or three EPs were released in conjunction with one (10 or 12-inch) LP release.

Among other things, the most attractive point of EmArcy EP is the design of jacket sleeves: some of them have EP-only photos and drawings. Unfortunately, maybe due to the low cutting levels, these EP's sound quality is inferior to the same recordings on LPs.

In preparing this page, both Masaya Hasegawa and Hiroyuki Umetsu helped me a lot (especially providing detailed title listings). Thank you so much!
