Vinyl Pressing For A New Generation of Listeners & Artists – Generation Wax

Employee Picks 2013

End-Of-Year lists are pretty popular this time of year, and some of our employees wanted to join in on some of the fun with their own lists of records we pressed in 2013.  Not all employees participated, and it would be nearly impossible to list all of the amazing records we pressed in 2013 without starting a new website devoted strictly to the subject.  But, here are some snapshots of favored records around the GGR house.  Be sure to check them out!


Employee Name: Vince Slusarz


(Note from Vince: “I preface my list with the reality that I only am able to listen to a relatively low percentage of everything we press, so there are undoubtedly many records that would be on it if I had the time for repeated listening”)
