How records are made


Gorgeous black and white photos from 1954 and 1962 of vinyl records being made, including scans of an album jacket with a description of the process. "How records are made" (Voices of East Anglia, via @chris_carter_)


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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
