PETER GABRIEL Shock The Monkey (Extremely rare one sided metal based ultra high-grade methyl cellulose lacquer acetate for the 1982 UK 7" single released through Charisma. There is a Tape 1 studio label on one side with the artist, song title & duration all hand annotated. The surface of the acetate is clean & shows merely the lightest few cosmetic scuffs as expected. These were pressed in extremely small numbers for sonic review, very few of these ever escape the studio & were never intended for general public consumption in this form. A must have for any collection).

Peter Gabriel Shock The Monkey UK acetate
Tracklisting / Additional Info: 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 like 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.
