How can you tell where an RCA record was pressed? Specifically "Angola" as in the country, not the city in Indiana with the great all you can eat buffet at the truckstop...Is it a code in the deadwax?...
We don't see many "Angola" questions around here. RCA's midwest pressing plant was in Indianapolis which is in the center of Indiana and Angola is way up near Michigan. It might help if you gave us the artist and release date. I am sure that RCA didn't own a pressing plant in Angola, they would have contracted that out to press 6 or 7 copies for the rich guys in Luanda. The folks in the countryside would have needed a dog chasing a chicken on a treadmill to power up their turntable.

Today the Portugese have of no lpnger Angola as a colony. However there are still close links between the two countries. In Portugese record shops you will very often find a section with music from Angola (and another, bigger one with music from Brazil, the largest Portugese speaking country in the world).jimboo wrote:RCA Angola records were pressed by Telectra, a Portuguese company in this Portuguese colony.
