TICKET TO RIDE

EXTREMELY RARE 8 INCH 45 RPM ONE SIDED MONO ACETATE RECORD

Item location: El Paso, Texas, United States

Another incredible Beatles acetate record!

This is a beauty!
Near Mint on the recording side!

The blank side is VG+ / VG++

But it's the recorded side that matters, right?

Quote from Beatles acetate leading authority Chazz Avery from BeatlesSource.com:
"
Sorry, I have no history for these specific discs. The "Pepper" disc is surely the standard Capitol stereo mix. Since "Ticket..." has the 33 1/3 crossed out, I would assume it's the standard mono single mix. "Audiodisc" is a manufacturer who's discs were used for U.S. acetates. This is the first one I've seen used by Capitol but that's probably only because it never had a Capitol label applied over it."

If Mr. Avery has no information or history on this disc, rest assured it is incredibly, extremely rare! Probably the only one in existence!

Quote from Bruce Spizer on The World Beatles Forum, leading authority on Beatles records:

"While the Butcher cover is not the rarest of Beatles records, it is the most sought after. Every collector wants a Butcher cover in his or her collection. Those with limited budgets start with a mono third state peel, while those who can afford it go after stereo first states and Livingston Butchers. Capitol acetate albums are certainly much rarer, but they don't attract the multitude of collectors as the Butchers. That's probably a good thing as most acetates are limited to five or less copies!"

THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY, EXTREMELY SUPER RARE BEATLES ACETATE 8 INCH 45 RPM RECORD!

PROBABLY ONE OF A KIND!

MY USUAL SOURCES DON'T SEEM TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT!
