Actually it was from both Heylin's and a Beatles-nut's books that I learned about some plant in a non-Manhattan borought of NYC- the home of Kustum Recs, among others, like the HWQ's named- "WCF/ White Cover Folks" label (I have 1 of
their Jimi boots from waayyy back & it's not too bad)... in both books I believe the people who used this plant were derided for producing some rather crappy boots next to their left-coast counterparts.... LZ expert Robert Godwin
complains about shitty east coast pressings in one of his books too, of course
I have 1 crappy early (pre-) TMOQ lp, a Kinks boot from '71 dynamite show, tolerable recording, crapoloa surface noise-ridden & low-output lp press.... know of any other good boot/ related books? I've known a few people who could add some neat appendices to Heylin's excellent read... also, I'm sure this was
a normal plant pressing the 'NY boots' in the early 70's but they were probably
doing small runs for small labels or high school band stuff rather than handling a contract for any of the big labels.... /Erik

actually, if you read clinton heywoods book, bootleg, youll find that the old time bootlegs were pressed in normal commercial plants for the most part...they pretended the tapes contained something else and generally had labels printed listing some made up band name for bootlegs of the stones, beatles, zepplin etc. those pressings often were very good but were often mastered from worn copies of previous issues of the recordings. sound familiar?

Hm, I wander if he goes to the same plant rock bootleggers used to use inthe NYC area
in the late 60's and early 70's? Thick crappy pressings with lots ofsurface noise- or
maybe a lot of plants are like that?

CarltonHis pressings are the worst. One listen to the Robert French Showcase or
Livingston Best Of is just a waste of time and money
