_____________________________________

Up to around 15 minutes of audio per side does not fit to the LP format, it is a more loud cut.
LP means Long Play microgroove cut. It allows to engrave up to approximately 30 minutes per side on a 12".

Discogs database discriminates between those two formats (see RSG §6.6).
Thereby, even if labels' marketing communication could sometime use 'LP' to notify that the release contains the usual amount of audio for an album, It should be understood as 'Long Playing release', not as 'Long Play cut'.

For example here is two different cuts for the same album:
-Original LP release: Roots
-Same audio material later distributed on a 2X12" 33RPM: Roots

It seems that EU and US share the same lacquer cut by Ron McMaster
But it's not pressed by GZ nor in EU or US

SkilledInTrouble I guess you confund the Optimal scheme with the current UMG's catalogue scheme. Pay attention, it shows one more digit : ) there's a warning about that on the Optimal's entry.
No trace of a GZ's scheme on this EU pressing nor in the... See full review

Nice mastering from tracks that seems extracted from movies themselves, tracks are blended in a very immersive way, shorts silences between tracks makes a kind of mix into the compilation. Good job !

Very nice cut here, sounds and vocals are clear and very well layered.
I wonder where the the first release was cut ,as there's no runouts entered yet...
