You would think some business person would see the opportunity here...right?

if 5 million sold in the UK, what was the world wide purchase?
I assume that number is new vinyl?

How about Kosmo's Platter Pressing Plant Inc. Kosmo's Lux Lacquer Ltd.

I think I'll get my discord record set when they get to their 40th anniversary


Look at all these places that will do it in the US

but they need those lacquer discs to make it all work

The reality is there aren’t a ton of plants with capacity around.


For example there is a plant in Czech Republic or whatever they are called this week that has been pressing a lot of the Argentine reissues I been buying.

I know we have small plants here or there but of the top off my head not many large plants come to mind: RTI, Pallas, United etc.   That plant in the Ohio area that opened about ten years ago and has done some Luna, all GBV…maybe Gotta groove?

And then there is the whole lacquers issue which I don’t even understand

Of course we have Furnace in our area…not sure what they press or capacity


So many of these modern repressings are in my opinion like counterfeit copies…all the Argentine reissues…most of the Brazilian…they are just taking a cd and putting it to vinyl and trying to copy the artwork…they are not using original analog sources etc…same for a ton of stuff in the US…. And the new stuff is almost all digitally sourced…

And then because the plants are so busy  now they pull the newly pressed records out too early before they have cooled down enough causing a ton of edgewarps etc.     The whole thing is nuts

file this one under the subtopic of Vinyl Stupidity

there is a four disc Target exclusive of the new Taylor Swift that's pressed as 45rpm and there are 1 star reviews of people complaining it sounds like a man is singing on all the tracks

also i saw people complaining that the Target Exclusives are coming out on red vinyl...

can we stick a fork in vinyl yet :)

if there is one group that can put the nail in the coffin of vinyl, it's swifties.
