I've heard the term "private pressing". It refers to LPs not pressed by a record label but rather for individual clients.... I think? But I have no idea how it was done, particularly in the 70s, before the advent of CDs and computer-based music recording technologies, and before the internet. Who pressed those LPs for the artists? Independent record plants? Perhaps record labels themselves did it, except they just wouldn't sign those "private" pressings as their "official" catalog releases? Was it legal? I mean, I don't think musicians just casually had record cutting lathes at home, right? Did recording studios have their own lathes back in the day? I can't find any detailed information online, and all info I can find is super vague and most of it is conflicting information. Seriously. It's all shrouded in mystery. Does anybody here know how private LP pressing looked behind the scenes?
