Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Los Angeles

Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Los Angeles

Profile:
Pressing plant including metal work for Capitol Records in Los Angeles, California
Note: This Profile is being researched. If you have a submission prior to 1947, please post an image of the pressing stamp.

The pressing stamp resembles a star [for Hollywood] which evolved from a five pointed star (☆) to a six pointed star (✲) and circa 1965 began appearing as a basic asterisk.
(A confirmation from 1947 shows the star as "☆" (Jerry Colonna - Here Comes... Colonna's Trolley) and circa 1964 as ✲ (The Hollyridge Strings - The Beach Boys Songbook: Romantic Instrumentals By The Hollyridge Strings). Los Angeles pressings had a 1 9/16" (1.5625" or 39.69 mm) diameter pressing ring, and, in the 1970s, a second 17/32" (0.53125" or 13.49 mm) ring around the spindle hole on Side B.

Note that if an "RCA" etch accompanies the stamp this likely means that the pressing was on a contract basis by RCA Records Pressing Plant, Hollywood, with metalwork supplied by Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Los Angeles. (e.g. The Beatles - I Feel Fine)

Additional & Complementary identifiers for Warner Bros. releases that were pressed by Capitol had the following codes on the lacquer numbers;
- LW - for Los Angeles Plant (Do not confuse with Longwear Plating)
- JW - for Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Jacksonville
- WW - for Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Winchester

The Los Angeles plant was purchased by Capitol in late 1945 and closed around 1982.
