An album is a collection of audio recordings issued as a collection on compact disc, 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. Vinyl LPs are still issued, though album sales in the 21st-century have 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, in a concert venue, at home, in the field, or a mix of places; the time frame for recording an album varies between a few hours to several years. This process requires several takes with different parts recorded separately, brought or "mixed" together. Recordings that are done in one take without overdubbing are termed "live" when done in a studio. Studios are built to absorb sound, eliminating reverberation, so as to assist in mixing different takes. Recordings, including live, may contain sound effects, voice adjustments, etc..
With modern recording technology, musicians can be recorded in separate rooms or at separate times while listening to the other parts using headphones. Album covers and liner notes are used, sometimes additional information is provided, such as analysis of the recording, lyrics or librettos; 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. Collections of related 78rpm records were bundled in book-like albums; when long-playing records were introduced, a collection of pieces on a single record was called an album. An album, in ancient Rome, was a board chalked or painted white, on which decrees and other public notices were inscribed in black, it was from this that in medieval and modern times album came to denote a book of blank pages in which verses, sketches and the like are collected. Which in turn led to the modern meaning of an album as a collection of audio recordings issued as a single item.
In the early nineteenth century "album" was used in the titles of some classical music sets, such as Schumann's Album for the Young Opus 68, a set of 43 short pieces. When 78rpm records came out, the popular 10-inch disc could only hold about three minutes of sound per side, so all popular recordings were limited to around three minutes in length. Classical-music and spoken-word items were released on the longer 12-inch 78s, about 4–5 minutes per side. For example, in 1924, George Gershwin recorded a drastically shortened version of the seventeen-minute Rhapsody in Blue with Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, it ran for 8m 59s. Deutsche Grammophon had produced an album for its complete recording of the opera Carmen in 1908. German record company Odeon released the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky in 1909 on 4 double-sided discs in a specially designed package; this practice of issuing albums does not seem to have been taken up by other record companies for many years. By about 1910, bound collections of empty sleeves with a paperboard or leather cover, similar to a photograph album, were sold as record albums that customers could use to store their records.
These albums came in both 12-inch sizes. The covers of these bound books were wider and taller than the records inside, allowing the record album to be placed on a shelf upright, like a book, suspending the fragile records above the shelf and protecting them. In the 1930s, record companies began issuing collections of 78 rpm records by one performer or of one type of music in specially assembled albums with artwork on the front cover and liner notes on the back or inside cover. Most albums included three or four records, with two sides each, making six or eight compositions per album; the 12-inch LP record, or 33 1⁄3 rpm microgroove vinyl record, is a gramophone record format introduced by Columbia Records in 1948. A single LP record had the same or similar number of tunes as a typical album of 78s, it was adopted by the record industry as a standard format for the "album". Apart from minor refinements and the important addition of stereophonic sound capability, it has remained the standard format for vinyl albums.
The term "album" was extended to other recording media such as Compact audio cassette, compact disc, MiniDisc, digital albums, as they were introduced. As part of a trend of shifting sales in the music industry, some observers feel that the early 21st century experienced the death of the album. While an album may contain as many or as few tracks as required, in the United States, The Recording Academy's rules for Grammy Awards state that an album must comprise a minimum total playing time of 15 minutes with at least five distinct tracks or a minimum total playing time of 30 minutes with no minimum track requirement. In the United Kingdom, the criteria for the UK Albums Chart is that a recording counts as an "album" i
Home on the Range
"Home on the Range" is a classic western folk song sometimes called the "unofficial anthem" of the American West. The lyrics were written by Dr. Brewster M. Higley of Smith County, Kansas, in a poem entitled "My Western Home" in 1872. In 1947, it became the state song of the U. S. state of Kansas. In 2010, members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 western songs of all time. In 1871, Higley moved from Indiana to Smith County, under the Homestead Act, he lived in a small cabin near West Beaver Creek. He was so inspired by his new bucolic surroundings that he decided to create a poem in praise of the prairie. Thus, the lyrics to "Home on the Range" were published as a poem in the Smith County Pioneer in 1872 under the title "My Western Home"; that home is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Home on the Range Cabin. The music was added by Daniel E. Kelley, a carpenter and friend of Higley. Higley's original words are not identical; the song was adopted by ranchers and other western settlers and spread across the United States in various forms.
In 1925, the song was arranged as sheet music by Texas composer David W. Guion, credited as the composer; the song has since gone by a number of names, the most common being "Home on the Range" and "Western Home". It was adopted as the state song of Kansas on June 30, 1947, is regarded as the unofficial anthem of the American West; the most popular version of the song was the version recorded by Bing Crosby on September 27, 1933, with Lennie Hayton and his orchestra for Brunswick Records which appeared in the various charts of the day. This turned a little-known saddle song into a most renowned western hymn; the origin of "Home on the Range" was obscure and debated at the time. It was published in 1910 in Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads by John Lomax, who said he learned it from a black saloonkeeper in Texas. In 1925 a sheet-music arrangement found some popularity, in 1927 Vernon Dalhart recorded it for Brunswick Records. California's radio cowboys picked it up from him, in 1930 Hollywood's first crooning western star, Ken Maynard, recorded the song.
However, it was not until the Crosby version that the song was seen as a national anthem for the west. Its popularity led to a plagiarism suit. Crosby's rendition is described by the writer Gary Giddins as transforming "a nostalgic lament into an ode to pioneering, a dream of shared history, a vaguely religious affirmation of fortitude in the face of peril". Giddins praises Crosby's subtle embellishments. Bing Crosby recorded the song again in 1938 and 1939. Frank Sinatra recorded the song on March 10, 1946. Others who have recorded the song include Connie Francis, Gene Autry, Burl Ives, Pete Seeger, Johnnie Ray, Slim Whitman, Steve Lawrence and Tori Amos. "Home on the Range" is performed in programs and concerts of American patriotic music and is used in plays and films. The song is the theme opening music for the early Western Films starring Ray "Crash" Corrigan and his 2 co-stars under their movie roles as "The Three Mesqueteers", it is featured in the 1937 screwball comedy The Awful Truth, the 1948 film Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, the 1967 off-Broadway musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, the 1980 film Where the Buffalo Roam, the 2009 film The Messenger, the 1946 western film Colorado Serenade.
A parody version is sung by villain Percival McLeach in the 1990 animated film The Rescuers Down Under. The song has also made its way into screen shorts for children and adults, as in the 1954 Looney Tunes cartoon Claws for Alarm, where it is sung by Porky Pig. Bugs Bunny sings the song in both The Fair-Haired Hare and Oily Hare, the latter containing original lyrics specific to Texas oilmen. In the 2010 video game Fallout: New Vegas, a version of this song titled "Home on the Wastes" appears, with the lyrics referring to a nice, radiation-free place to live. In the altered lyrics, the original animals mentioned in the older versions, such as buffalo, deer and prairie dogs, are replaced with bighorners, mole rats, fire geckos, radscorpions; the song is used in The Simpsons episode Lisa's Substitute where Lisa's substitute teacher illustrates the inaccuracies within the song, noting that "Actually, the range was far from home. It was a desolate place of danger and disease." The song is used in Wizards of Waverly Place, sung by the character Maxine in episode "Back to Max".

I Do (Lisa Loeb song)
"I Do" is a song written and recorded by American singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb. Released October 1997 as the lead single from her second album Firecracker, "I Do" peaked at number 17 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Loeb's most successful single after her number-one debut single "Stay" in 1994. In Canada, "I Do" earned Loeb her second number-one hit, after "Stay"; this song was her last top-twenty single in both countries. On the surface, the song seems to be about "the realization that a person isn't right for you, that the relationship has gone bad". However, the real intention of the song is quite different according to the liner notes for The Very Best of Lisa Loeb: "We were finished recording the album and the record company told us that we still needed a single. I decided to write a song that sounded like a song about a relationship but was about the record company not'hearing' a single on the record already. You can hear it in the lyrics,'You can't hear it, but I do.' The song ended up being an expression of strength and power when someone's not treating you right."
The song was warmly greeted by Billboard who called the melody and chorus "nothing short of pure pop bliss." In the music video, directed by Phil Harder, it shows scenes of Loeb in black and white singing on an upside-down microphone and lies down on the feather floor in the singing studio. It features paintings of her as well as the lyrics in some scenes. "I Do" "Do You Sleep?"
