ROY HARPER Male Chauvinist Pig Blues (Very rare 1974 UK single sided 7" metal based high quality methyl cellulose lacquer acetate containing what appears to be a stereo Demo version of what finally ended up as track two of 'Valentine'. The drums are noticably subdued & the tempo slower, there are slide guitar parts evident and a saxophone part, along with a different vocal line & backing guitars. This amazing disc comes simply with a hand annotated Abbey Road EMI Studios label with 45RPM speed, 3:37 running time & RS29 number. The title & Roy's name appear to be in a very familiar handwriting, but we have no way of confirming this. This acetate itself remains in excellent condition, free from any but the lightest surface scuffs & plays through without fault or any clicks & pops. A fantastic copy of this rare & possibly unique item, certainly in this condition!).

Tracklisting / Additional Info: Male Chauvinist Pig [Blues] 3:37

An acetate is a transitional stage between the master tape and the finished vinyl record.

Originally acetates were used for home recording in the days before tape recorders, but since the advent of cassette tape & CDR are now no longer used for providing bands & their entourage copies of today's studio efforts. A machine actually cuts the grooves into the acetate with a lathe.

The acetate is used to assess whether the music has been successfully transferred to disc. It is checked by the sound engineer. There may be only one copy made of a particular recording, sometimes more are cut and sent to the studio and band members for approval.

The acetate comes before making the master, and allows the sound to be checked without great expense.

It is unusual for more than a dozen to be manufactured, so from the collector's point of view an acetate is a rare find indeed! If the recording is rejected the acetate may be the only record that survives. The rejected cut may simply be poor quality, however the artist may have opted to use a different take of the song, if so, the acetate becomes much more precious.
An incredible find - possibly unique - and certainly one of only a handful!
