Stones on DECCA

Foreign pressings with UK label

Some non grooved Stones LP’s pressed in the end of the 60’s has been found with Matrix numbers that are totally different looking than standard numbers used by Decca in England. Part of the letters and the tape number are the same as used in UK, but with a different font. The Master Lacquer used for making the plates that these LP’s were pressed with has clearly not been made by Decca in London.

Some LP’s made in Belgium during the 60’s has the same font and pattern of the Matrix so we believe that these plates are originated form Decca in Belgium. The LP’s do have the standard UK made Decca labels. These records are pressed in Belgium with plates made in Belgium and with standard UK labels with “Made In England”.
