    An EP (for extended play) is generally an album (vinyl or CD) of 5 to 8 songs.
    An LP (for long play) is generally an album (vinyl or CD) of 8 or more songs.

    I will say this though. On Compact Disc, which can hold 80 minutes of music, the term "EP" is arbitrary and more a matter of perception.
