Pama AR(S) custom pressings

There is a series of custom pressings done at Pama that use a AR/ARS numbering system. While most of these were recorded at Audio, some were not. The actual meaning of the "AR" letters is unknown, but best guesses are Audio Recording or Arnie Rosenberg (who was part of Pama of course).

demo LP

ARS-38/9, Pinnley Thinstrype, has #38 for the A side and #39 for the B side. The Shades record has ARS-39 on the label but not the dead wax. The Yonts Brothers 45 has two pressings - the black label (ARS-36) and a blue label (ARS-37). The recorded take is the same but the black label has a cold ending while the blue label has a fade ending, and there seems to be slight differences in the equalization.

The Jaggers were from Pittsburgh, but recorded at Audio.
