	 jc: jewel case

    ltd edn: limited edition
     	 wl: vinyl white-label promo or test pressing release
	 tp: test pressing


 test press: Vinyl test pressing release, this is usually made for the record
      	     company to decide if everything is OK with the pressing - like
	     it says - it's a test pressing. Sometimes a company will press
	     extra copies and use it for promotional use. (White labels are
	     literally the same as test pressings).

    acetate: This is pressed in very small quantities and is actually a metal
    	     sheet covered in acetate material. It is made for the producer/
	     artist/record company to have a listen before they make a test
	     pressing. It can only be played a few times before it wears out
	     - but because it is so limited, can be very expensive for
	     collectable artists.

      promo: Promotional release "Not For Sale" & "For Promotional Use Only"
	     Usually sent out to places where it would be an advantage for
	     the artist/group to be seen or heard, i.e. radio stations, DJs,
	     magazines and news papers, etc.

       demo: This is a cross between a test pressing and a promo and is
       	     usually used for promotional use. Not commercially available.

studio tape: The use of the studio tapes are purely internal to studios,
             use these working tapes for testing different mixes or level
	     of sounds, etc. Not commercially available. This could may be
	     confused at using with demo tapes.

 radio show: A release specially recorded for radio airplay.

    bootleg: Unauthorized & unofficial release of previously unreleased
    	     material consisting of concert recordings, studio outtakes,
	     rare remixes, and radio or television broadcasts.
    	     Some old bootlegs on vinyl and CD are very interesting and
	     quite collectable. Usually they are live or unreleased tracks
	     and be of dubious sound quality (from poor to excellent) as
	     some bootleggers will release anything.

     pirate: Unauthorized release of previously released material without
             attempting to make the album look like an original.

counterfeit: Unauthorized copy of an officially released album.
