Cinram

Profile:
Toronto, Ontario-based manufacturer of vinyl records and pre-recorded DVDs, VHS videocassettes, CD-Audio, CD-ROMs, and audio cassettes.
For the French manufacturer, please refer to Cinram Optical Discs.

Founded in 1969 as a manufacturer of eight-track cartridges and cassettes.

Cinram's first CD pressing plant commenced operations in 1987.

In 2003, it purchased the European manufacturer and distributor Warner Music Manufacturing Europe, located in Alsdorf (Germany), which was then renamed Cinram GmbH. The same year, it also acquired WEA Manufacturing Inc., the American disc-manufacturing facilities formerly owned by Time Warner.

Vinyl pressings can be identified by a stamped CR in a circle. Occasionally, the CR was etched. Also, some WEA Music Of Canada, Ltd. vinyl and cassette releases have "CR" on them, usually below the cat #. Vinyl manufacturing was given up around 1991.

The date of the glass master can be determined from the Cinram matrix number. For example:

Les Cowboys Fringants - 12 Grandes Chansons - Sur Mon Canapé...
Matrix / Runout (Disc 1): TRIB216391 #11114Y17 12
Glass Master Date: November 14, 2001

Faith No More - Songs To Make Love To
Matrix / Runout: CD-40762 MFG BY CINRAM #930314KK
Glass Master Date: March 14, 1993

a-ha - Hunting High And Low
Matrix / Runout: CD-25300 MFG BY CINRAM #931015HH
Glass Master Date: October 15, 1993

These dates may be used to determine if the release is an original release or a repress, but does not inform the release date itself as glass masters are frequently used some time after it was originally manufactured.
Please note that these numbers should not be added to the LCCN field, they are just dates and not sequential numbers.
