Each LP should have this information affixed to the LP so the buyer could easily see what the LP is made of. The information should be positioned so the buyer could easily see the info on the outer cover:
1] Source Tape (Analog or Digital):
2] Tape Format (Analog copy specifics or #Digital Bits/Sampling Rate):
3] Mastering (1/2 speed, DMM, D2D, etc):
4] Mastered By:
5] Mastering Speed:
6] Mastering Hardware:
7] Plated By:
8] Pressed By:
9] Mastering/Plating Notes:
10] Vinyl Weight:
11] Vinyl Formulation:
12] Cover Type:
Any more ideas for info?
In case this isn´t included in 2], which generation the master-tape is would be nice to know.
On 3] it would be interesting to know if they used digital delay for variable pitch or analog.
Highest and lowest frequency cut into the record also might be interesting to know.
If you´re interested in the most neutral sound-reproduction it would be necessary to know which cartridge was used to audition the test-cut(s) (the "refs").
The names and addresses of the QA personnel at the plant, so we may throw eggs and rolls of toilet tissue at their lawn.
Lol, but in some cases... would be handy.
