No, it’s not April’s Fools, and most of you know this probably already.
The demand for Vinyl records is on the rise. That, per se, is a good thing. As unsexy schlepping the black gold to a gig was, as sexy Vinyl records are as objects for audiophile hipsters.
The problem with the continuously rising demand is that vinyl pressing plants can’t keep up with the demand because they lack capacity. In fact, this went so far that pressing shops stopped to accept new customers and record labels opening their own plants.
But there is good news! In some random warehouse in Chicago, Chad Kassem of Quality Record Pressings, found 13 vintage presses from the 90s.
This may sound like a bag-of-rice kind of news, but since new presses aren’t manufactured anymore this becomes kinda important news for vinyl lovers.
