Basically the UK was broke after the war, Decca used old converted 78 presses to produce their records. More by accident than design Decca deep groove vinyl was pressed in the same manner as later "audiophile" records were only on better vinyl. A Decca deep groove album could have been used a cheeseboard and still sound good. But if you just want to listen to the sound and not clock the value, Stones / Small Faces etc VG- can go cheap. Another tip for any Tamla fans out there, UK Tamla were first pressed by Oriole who also contracted to Decca, so watch out for some early deep groove motown. EMI took over later, then RCA.
