The Artist's Preferred Record Pressing Plant

Employee Picks 2012

Just for fun — here are a few of employee favorite records pressed at GGR this year, compiled by some of the Gotta Groovies.  We press a lot of great records throughout the year, so it’s tough to narrow the list down to just a handful – there are a lot of great records not listed here.  But, we hope you will check some of these records out – links to learn more about them (and buy, when available) are listed below.
