I Don't Want To Spoil The Party



Auctioned on eBay in early 2004. The seller assumes that "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" might be a different mix but this seems unlikely. There is only one mono and one stereo mix documented. Perhaps this disc features a unique alternate fade.

FROM AUCTION DESCRIPTION:

THE BEATLES
* RARE CAPITOL RECORDS 8" ACETATE 1965

Speed: 45 RPM

UP FOR AUCTION IS A VERY SCARCE ORIGINAL CAPITOL RECORDS 8 INCH STUDIO ACETATE OF EIGHT DAYS A WEEK 2:43 bw/ I DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THE PARTY 2:33.

A REAL BEATLES COLLECTORS ITEM IN SUPERB EXCELLENT CONDITION. VISUAL AND AUDIBLE. PLAYED ONCE TO GRADE. FEW LIGHT SURFACE MARKS, NO SKIPS.
