Federal Record Mfg. Co. Ltd.

Federal Record Mfg. Co. Ltd.

Profile:
Jamaican record manufacturing company, often abbreviated to Federal Records (3), connected to Federal Records Studio; please use for company roles, Federal is the label.
Manufactured By is usually credited on the text at the edge of the label.
Records pressed by the Federal plant can be recognised by the etched matrix prefix FRM or F.R.M. and releases often show the letters F+R, joined by a cross or dagger, in the run-out area.
On some pressings the matrix prefix may be only an F, followed by the producer's initials [e.g: FPB = Pressed By Federal Record Mfg. Co. Ltd. and Produced by Prince Buster].
The same prefix may also still appear on re-releases pressed from the original Federal plates, often a plate made elsewhere may have been used for the other side; for these editions, unless otherwise specified, a 'Mastered At' credit is more appropriate.

I am happy for the professional work and experience federal records have, on the contrary I am requesting information, Derrick Panthor would like to know the cost of cutting stamper for an album, and a single. Also I have tracks that will interest the company, please notify me asap respectfully yours, Derrick James(aka) Panthor.
