Growing up with Vinyl LP’s as the defacto standard for music distribution I managed to collect quite a few before Compact Discs replaced them. It’s interesting to know that these are still manufactured today. You can even find them for some very well known artists.
I always knew that LP’s were created by stamping, but I ran across this article which really explains the process well, as well as the hurdles the LP has faced along the way. Very interesting read.
