Etymology: [L., neut. of albus white: cf. F. album. Cf. Alb.]
An album is a book used for the collection and preservation of miscellaneous items such as photographs, postage stamps, newspaper clippings, visitors' comments, etc. The word later became widely used to describe a collection of audio recordings of pieces of music on a single gramophone record, cassette, compact disc, or via digital distribution. 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. When long-playing records were introduced, a collection of pieces on a single record was called an album; the word was extended to other recording media such as compact disc, MiniDisc, Compact audio cassette, and digital or MP3 albums, as they were introduced. The word derives from a Classical Latin word for a blank tablet, later a list. Audio albums in physical form are often provided with decorative covers and liner notes and inserts about the music and recording, giving background information and analysis of the recording, lyrics and librettos, images of the performers, and other images and text. When supplied with compact discs they are known as CD booklets.

It's crazy to think we're about to release our debut album after all these years, this is going to be a very special moment and we are grateful to have this team behind us.
Back in the Wham! days, he experimented with cocaine, but he didn’t really like it, in the early ‘90s, George got into ecstasy. But then Anselmo Feleppa, who was no doubt the love of his life and his soulmate, died in 1993 of AIDS. He was racked with pain. He turned to pot and became a full-time stoner. His album ‘Older' was made completely under the influence of pot. Then around 2003, 2004, he got into a party drug called GHB. In my opinion, more than anything, that’s the drug that did him in. But he didn’t stop there. He got into crack cocaine and was arrested for possession of that.
Even if the album don't go anywhere, that doesn't mean nothing to me, i did what most people said I wouldn't do. And I overcame, I guess you could say, a lot of rookie boundaries. I just shot past what a lot of people expected. Selling the album is what I'm supposed to do in the music industry, not what I wanted to do.
As a parent Dee Snider and as a rock fan, I know when I see an album cover with a severed goat’s head in the middle of a pentagram between a woman’s legs that it’s not the kind of album I want my son to be listening to.
That's why that album was successful, because I was able to write some music that wasn't made while I had the fear of God in me, pulling my skirt down in a studio because men were shoving their hands up my dress.
