    My mother had such albums. I recall they were quite fragile, not like the somewhat flexible 331/3s

    Those were 10" records and I think they ran at 33 1/3. Also known as "extended play" (EP).

    Actually, looks like there were several variations:

    What I'm talking about is the thick fragile hard wax 78 RPM "albums" with about 4 disks in the "Album". My folks had some big band stuff WWII era and also some classical stuff in these "albums". The only 33 1/3 EP I have came in my vinyl Elvis Costello - Armed Forces (1979 paint splatter cover) album. For the longest time that was my only copy of his songs "Allison" and "Watching the Detectives" which are great tunes.

    78s or Shellacs as some call them were released in various sizes. 12inch & 10inch being the most common. What was originally described sounds like an album of 10inch 78s.

    I have 12, 10 & 7 inch records that play at 33.3 and 12 & 7 inch records that are 45s.
    The 10 inch 33.3 is a 1975 RSO sampler album called "RSO Prime Cuts"
    I think I have that Elvis Costello extra as well.

    Cool site with more information:
    Museum Of Obsolete Media - 10-inch 78 rpm record (1901 – 1960)

    Other interesting things there as well; "VinylDisc" anyone?

    Very interesting.

    "By about 1910 bound collections of empty sleeves similar to a photograph album, were sold as ‘record albums’ that customers could use to store their records. Starting in the 1930s, record companies began issuing collections of 78 rpm records by one performer or of one type of music in specially assembled albums, typically with artwork on the front cover and liner notes on the back or inside cover."
    Hence the term "album" it seems.

    I have several of those 78 RPM albums I salvaged from my parents after they died. They are very heavy relative to modern LPs. They are in boxes on a shelf somewhere. Tommy Dorsey is among them; I don't recall others.

    I'd bet you'd find Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman in that mix.

    I've been reading the Paul Simon biography Homeward Bound (by Peter Ames Carlin), and found it quite good. Many of the reviews of the book focus on the negatives -- Simon is a good businessman as well as a very talented composer, bandleader and performer, and has been sharp in his business dealings, no doubt. And the relationship with Garfunkel was and remains troubled. But Simon is fairly treated for his accomplishments, as well as his failures (think Capeman).

    In any event, reading about the creation and recording of many of those iconic tunes lead me to want a soundtrack to the reading, so I queued up various albums to play particular tracks while reading about the studio sessions, or the changes made to subsequent releases, etc. I hadn't known that Sound of Silence was originally a pure acoustic number, since the most famous released version veers into folk rock. Same vocal, new instruments added.

    Worth a read, but get the soundtrack ready.
