Thanks for another Rimrock single. I just did a little more research on the Rimrock plant. If I'm right, then all the Rimrock 45s were pressed at Raney's own Rimrock pressing plant. Rimrock was the in-house label of the Rimrock pressing plant and studio. By the way: can you read what is etched into the dead wax?
In the deadwax:RS-225 Nashville Matrix 88
Okay, that was not what I expected. I have an ORK record (Jonesboro) that has the record number etched into the deadwax (OS-36-A/B) as well as "Rimrock 828". That leads me to the assumtion that Rimrock pressed the record and 828 was something like a client number or so.That Nashville Matrix only says that metal parts for the pressing plant came from the Matrix of Nashville company, but I guess you know that.
Other Rimrock 45s also have "Nashville Matrix 88" in their dead wax.
That 88 was probably Rimrock's client number at Nashville Record Productions, Inc., a mastering service in Nashville that used Matrix of Nashville metal parts. That's why "Nashville Matrix" is stamped in the deadwax. So I guess Nashville Record Production did lots of mastering for Rimrock.
