MCA Pressing Plant, Pinckneyville

MCA Pressing Plant, Pinckneyville

Profile:
Defunct American record pressing plant located in Pinckneyville, Illinois. Originally opened in 1956 by Decca Records, Inc. From 1956 to 1966, the plant was operated as Decca Records Pressing Plant, Pinckneyville, until purchased by MCA Records, which operated it under this name from 1966 until it (and MCA) became part of the Universal Music Group. Pinckneyville was closed in 2007.

Runout Identifiers:
- From 1966 to January 1973, pressings can be identified by a stamped '②', or a stamped or etched numeral '2' in runouts.
- After January 1973, pressings can be identified by a '◈-P-◈' or '✧-P-✧' (two diamond shapes with a P in the middle) stamp or etching in the runouts.
- The '2' re-appeared after 1990.
- Contract pressings for other labels often carry an 'MCA-I' or 'MCA-Ill" (for Illinois) etch in runouts.
Label Identifiers:
- Decca pressings from this plant can sometimes be identified by a '◆' or '★' symbol printed at the end of the B side label matrix numbers, though these markings are not always reliable (as labels were sometimes used by other pressing plants), and should be applied with caution. If in doubt, kindly consult the forum.
- Atlantic/ATCO Records pressings from this pressing plant can be identified by a 'DCW' suffix in the label matrix numbers (which stood for Decca Custom West).
- After 1980, pressings on MCA and distributed labels have Side markers set in mixed-case with a numeral ("Side 1"), with track listings left-justified.
- K-Tel releases often have Plant Code '15' or 'P' printed on the labels.
- London Records and associated labels often have plant code 'K' printed on the labels.
