Mini CD Single

The mini CD single (also 3-inch CD or CD3, in relation to the CD5, or the 5-inch CD single) is a mini Compact Disc that measures 8 cm (3.1 in) in diameter, rather than the standard 12 cm (4.7 in). They are manufactured using the same methods as standard full-size CDs, and can be played in most standard audio CD players and CD-ROM disc drives. The format was first released in the United Kingdom, Japan, U.S.A., France, West Germany, and Hong Kong in 1988. Although the format was not widely available in the United Kingdom, several artists, such as Garbage, Catatonia, The Sisters of Mercy, Stereolab, and R.E.M. have released singles in the format. They also remain a popular, low cost way for independent musicians and groups to release music.

Famous quotes containing the word single:

    The shore is composed of a belt of smooth rounded white stones like paving-stones, excepting one or two short sand beaches, and is so steep that in many places a single leap will carry you into water over your head; and were it not for its remarkable transparency, that would be the last to be seen of its bottom till it rose on the opposite side. Some think it is bottomless.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
