Closely observed grooves

Who knew that a Czech village was the source of most of the vinyl discs now enjoying a revival? and tell the story. (Thanks to BBC World Service for the report which inspired this post.)

Among the early components of my LP collection must be products from Loděnice, as the factory was it seems originally part of Supraphon. In the days of the Soviet bloc, the company was the source of inexpensive but high-quality recordings of the standard repertoire and of Czech composers not much recorded in the West.
