labels such as Bluenote, Far Out, and EMI America and others. However they also pressed for many other major and minor labels including Polydor, Decca, Uni, MCA, and Kapp.
During 1971-72 labels often used typesetting from Progressive Label And Litho Co. of Brooklyn, NY. Such copies usually have lacquers mastered by Gilbert Kong.
