SEX PISTOLS

I WANNA BE ME                                                                                                                                                                                                                              ABBEY ROAD ACETATE DISC c.1976 - ORIGINALLY OWNED BY DAVE GOODMAN

AUTHENTIC ONE SIDED EMI/ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS 7" ACETATE DISC

THE FORMER PROPERTY OF ORIGINAL SEX PISTOLS SOUND MAN DAVE GOODMAN

COMES WITH A SIGNED LETTER OF PROVENANCE FROM DAVE GOODMAN HIMSELF WHICH DETAILS HISTORY & BACKGROUND TO THIS VERY RARE SEX PISTOLS PIECE (see pics)

CONDITION OF THE DISC IS VISUALLY VG- WITH SOME SURFACE MARKS, PLUS GENERAL WEAR NORMALLY ASSOCIATED WITH A 40+ YEAR OLD ACETATE

ALTHOUGH THE ACETATE HAS NOT HAD THE BEST STORAGE/CARE OVER THE YEARS, THE PLAYING QUALITY OF THE DISC IS FINE WITH NO PROBLEMS

TO THE REAR OF THE DISC, A SMALL STICKER IS PRESENT WITH A TELEPHONE NUMBER - RESEARCH (WHICH CAN BE PROVEN) HAS SHOWN THAT THIS WAS DAVE'S OWN PRIVATE NUMBER DURING THE LATE 1970's & THE SAME NUMBER IS PRESENT, ALONG WITH THE INITIALS D.G. ON THE FRONT OF THE EMI FACTORY SLEEVE THAT HAS HOUSED THE ACETATE SINCE BEING GIVEN TO DAVE IN 1976. THE INITIALS D.G. ARE ALSO MARKED INTO THE BACK OF THE DISC BY DAVE HIMSELF (see pics)

PICS # 8 & 9 SHOW EXTRACTS FROM DAVE'S BOOK 'My Amazing Adventures With the Sex Pistols' AND JON SAVAGE'S BOOK 'England's Dreaming'  THAT MAKE MENTION OF DAVE RECEIVING AN ACETATE OF MIKE THORNE'S RE-WORKED MIX OF DAVE'S PRODUCTION OF 'ANARCHY IN THE UK' FROM EMI AND THIS ACETATE WAS ALSO GIVEN TO DAVE AT THE SAME TIME, AS MENTIONED IN HIS LETTER (see pics)

THE ONLY REAL DOWNSIDE, AS CAN BE SEEN, IS THE CONDITION OF THE LABEL WHICH WAS THE RESULT OF WATER DAMAGE (see letter which gives explanation of this) BUT IT IS INTACT WITH BOTH NAME, TIMING & SONG TITLE ETC STILL MORE OR LESS BEING ABLE TO BE MADE OUT (see pics)

WITH THE EMI SLEEVE BEING PAPER, LIKE THE LABEL IT HAS ALSO SUFFERED THE SAME DAMAGE (see pics)

THE ACETATE STILL RETAINS THE SHELLAC LACQUER 'SMELL' THAT ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH ACETATES WILL KNOW ABOUT

THE MOST INTERESTING ASPECT OF THE DISC IS THAT AT THE END OF THE TRACK, THE FINAL ENDING (the last chord after the pause) IS NOT PRESENT WHICH REPRESENTS A SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT CUT TO THE RELEASED VERSION..

I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN A SERIOUS COLLECTING/SELLING CAPACITY HANDLING SOME OF THE RAREST WORLDWIDE PUNK VINYL & MEMORABILIA FOR OVER THE PAST 35 YEARS NOW AND TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, NO ACETATE CUT OF THE B-SIDE OF THE GROUPS 'ANARCHY IN THE UK' SINGLE ON EMI RECORDS HAS EVER COME UP FOR SALE IN THAT TIME, POSSIBLY MAKING THIS UNIQUE & CERTAINLY ONE OF THE RAREST PIECES I HAVE HAD IN MY POCESSION DURING THAT TIME..

SINGLE VENDOR OWNERSHIP FROM THE ORIGINAL SALE BEFORE PRESENT ACQUISITION
