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 1.5625" diameter pressing ring.

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 Jacksonville Plant
- WW - for Winchester Plant

The Los Angeles plant closed around 1982.
