Charles Hamilton breakdown

I saw this on Charles Hamilton's blog and thought it was useful. Enjoy

first single - the record that defines the mixtape, project, album for the masses

single - a well-selected portion of the mixtape, project and/or album

mixtape - a collection of random musical vents, usually over other people's production (not original)

project - a body of music that requires you to live the music, beginning to end

album - a body of music that captures a segment in time for a cause

anthology - the entire body of an artist's music, presented on a "just 'cause" basis

greatest hits - singles strung together to form a project
