How Vinyl Records Are Made

This month, Make Magazine highlighted a video showing how vinyl records are made.
From the blog post:
"For the last couple of years there has been a resurgence in popularity of vinyl records. Largely due to digital downloads rending the portability of compact discs obsolete, people are starting to gravitate to vinyl as the physical format of choice. In this short documentary from Nick Cavalier we get a behind-the-scenes look at the production of vinyl records at Gotta Groove Records, a new vinyl pressing plant in Cleveland, Ohio."

Thanks for sharing!

Great site!

Thanks for sharing the very cool video from Gotta Groove Records. Its pretty cool to see a new interest in records. I was at a thrift shop today browsing though the used records and there were 2 or 3 others doing the same - something I don't usually see. I am usually the only one digging though the records when I visit any given thrift shop.

On a sortta related topic, I see that Cheep Trick put out their most recent album as a digital download, LP record, CD and 8-Track! Must have been a challenge to find somewhere to make an 8-track!! I almost bought it just for the kitch of it ;-)
