I've noticed recently some great acetates on the Internet, including a cool song by the Virgin Sleep called "Arthur" that wasn't released. Not quite as stunning as their best, but better than "Comes A Time" it seems to me.
There was another ( findable on YouTube) by a band called "Senses" that has no other info other than that and EMIdisc on the label. I think you can find it by searching "Senses psych acetate" on YouTube. The condition isn't perfect, but the song is great!
My question is does anyone know if a collection of psych acetates will get a CD release? It would be cool if it did.
Actually "Senses" is probably the song name. But it seems to me acetates could probably be read better these days with computers that could clean them up. I've read that grooves can be read these days with lasers so that even a cracked or broken 78 can be salvaged and the music digitized. I would think the same would apply for a crackly acetate.
Another interesting one on YouTube is The Blossom Toes "Look at me, I'm you" in a different (earlier?) run through from the album version.
Yeah, it's funny how little information goes on the label of an acetate. You'd think someone might scrawl a band name. It's also too bad that acetates end up getting damaged easily. I guess there's a lot of anonymous slices of psych history out there...
