  1. How It’s Made did a really great video on cutting vinyl: http://youtu.be/H342sImBY1s

    How records “were” made.

    Although, the process probably hasn’t changed much.

    The Dead Weather had a pretty cool music video for Will There Be Enough Water that all had to do with vinyl production.

    archive.org has this http://archive.org/details/CommandP1942 short movie about record manufacturing in 1942. Compared with the How It’s Made linked above I can say that announcer styles have changed more than vinyl manufacturing.

    What’s a record?

    I don’t miss the pops and scratches. I don’t miss having to get up every 20 minutes to change the record. I don’t miss discs melting in the car on the way home from the record store.

    But oh how I miss the artwork on those big LP jackets.

    Self publishing was always a problem. The least number you could have pressed was 500. Buying 1000 was better but in both cases you had to store them somewhere until sold.

    Permanent records are made by skipping class and smoking cigarettes.
