Wondering what in the world is a test pressing?

Test pressings are extremely rare first pressings of a vinyl record that are used to approve the vinyl pressing, before an LP is mass produced. Generally, only four copies are made– one for the artist, one for the producer, one for the label, and one extra (sometimes a few extra are made, but overall the quantity is always very small). Simply put, these are collector’s items, and anyone in ownership of one is part of a very small and exclusive group. Now is your chance to own a piece of music history!
