THE BEATLES 10" ACETATE RECORDING OF "FOOL ON THE HILL" ON WHAT APPEARS TO BE A GENUINE EMIDISC ACETATE. IT COMES IN A "USE EMITEX" POLY LINED INNERSLEEVE AND A RIGID CARDBOARD OUTER.
THE DISC IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND PLAYS WITH A LITTLE BACKGROUND NOISE; AS YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM AN ACETATE. THE SONG FEATURES A SOLO PAUL AT THE PIANO, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT HE HAS NOT COMPLETED ALL THE WORDS AS THERE ARE A LOT OF DO, DO DE DO'S ETC! IT LASTS FOR 2:45 AND IS IN MONO.
"Fool On the Hill - A 45 RPM recording on 10” acetate. In the centre of the disc the number 78905-01 is stamped. On the run off the words A PORKY PRIME CUT are written. On the lead in it has NIGEL written It plays for 2:45 minutes."
THE DISCLAIMER! I PURCHASED THREE 10" ACETATES, THE OTHER TWO ARE " I AM THE WALRUS & I ME MINE" AROUND 1980 AT A SECONDHAND RECORD STORE IN SOUTH LONDON. I MAY SELL THE OTHERS DEPENDING ON WHAT I GET FOR THIS ONE?
I DO NOT KNOW THE SOURCE OF THESE, THEREFORE I AM SELLING THEM AS INTERESTING CURIOSITIES THAT ARE AT LEAST 30 YEARS OLD AND ARE UNIQUE.
IF ANYONE KNOWS MORE ABOUT THEIR HISTORY PLEASE CONTACT ME....?On Jan-29-10 at 11:08:07 PST, seller added the following information:
Sorry for the late amendment. But I will not ship to Italy without insurance! Therefore anyone winning the auction from Italy will be invoiced for the additional amount. I hate to do this, but I cannot afford to keep losing shipments!!!
