NEW UPDATED VERSION

Rock Steady Fact:

After some calculation in the amounts of 7" pressed at Wirl & Federal during the rocksteady time od 1966-68 the total output is in excess of 5500 singles! This of course doesn't include the UK's output that wasn't pressed in JA, which was a couple of hundred. This would make 5700 (circa) altogether. That would make the daily output of 6.5 records a day!
