Can't Buy Me Love



Notes from Mark Erbach...

"The infamous 78rpm EMI acetates. Yes, they are absolutely real (I have not seen a fake to date). They were made in support of the 78 rpm pressings of the Beatles which were targeted for India and the Philippians and EMI ran acetate pressings of them. I am assuming that you have seen those pressings. I have seen 2 -3 others with the last being the "Can't Buy Me Love" acetate that Perry Cox auctioned about a year ago. Notice the writing similarities with the ["If I Fell" acetate]. Both labels were written by the same person (although it wasn't Emerick, Clark, or McDonald since they always wrote their initials on the label).

In theory, the only 78 rpm acetates that should exist are for singles that were pressed for export that are 78 rpm, and there are only a handful. See the Across The Universe web site for a good description and pictures of them."
