Re: [ARSCLIST] Decca/London phase 4 stereo series

I have read that Decca had a special pressing plant,in England,just for US London label records.

I don't think they pressed them for that many other countries.I have some 60s Decca releases from Australia/NZ,and these were pressed by EMI.The ones I have from Canada were pressed there.
