Record Pressing Plant Videos

Believe it or not, vinyl record sales continue to grow every year as an appetite grows for the format in just about all musical genres and all demographics of music buyers. Most artists really want to release their wares on vinyl too, but are prohibited by the costs and limited (but growing) market.

That being said, a record is something tangible that you can hold in your hand, which you can't do with a download. And because you can touch it, it's easy to understand exactly what it is, as pointed out in one of the following videos. And as reported yesterday, vinyl sales were up a whopping 222% on Record Store Day last Saturday.

The first video takes a look at how a vinyl record is made, and the second one looks at the last pressing plant in Detroit. Enjoy.
