How Vinyl Records Are Made

March 5, 2010

After reading Olivier Rosset’s piece on shaped picture disc singles, I was inspired to learn how vinyl records are made. Here are a couple of clips about the process courtesy of the Discovery Channel. The voiceover work in these reminds me a lot of this educational videos we used to watch in school; but, if you get past that (and the super cheesy music), they are really interesting. Hope you enjoy them!



If you thought vinyl records were dead, you may be surprised if you click the image of the SoundScan charts I’ve included below.
