Did you at least also back it up directly in digital form before 'archiving' it?

Is this the same version as the De Lane Lea demo?

Yes - but I have only ever seen this as reel-reel tape.
To see the acetate "in action" is a real treat.

Ferdy: Are you sure this is an 8" disc - and not a 7" single or 10" test press acatate?
I personally, never knew 8" acetates existed.

Yes John.. it's 8" and it was a great thrill to play it .. that's why I filmed it. Even with camera mic you could hear how song is clean and loud comparing to the "in the beginning" cd version. Now a question to you.... why this acetate exist....? for what I know de lane tapes were from 1971.. was this a direct transfer to acetate from tapes months later?? or what??

Thanks for uploading this; the quality of this De Lane Lea demo is certainly better than we have had before.

8" Acetates are very rare, but I have seen a few for sale at eil.com.

Very interesting, it sounds clearer that the known version. But is it stereo? It's hard to tell from that video.
BTW, great record player!

I don't know is the simple answer.

However, my best educated guess would be that this should be a reference acetate cut for one of the band or the sound engineers or technicians.
(If genuine) it was cut at the time. All acetates are immediate.
There would be no reason to cut an actetate retrospectively, as tape would be more convenient and cheaper.

The only exception to this rule would be if an unreleased track (say "Cool Cat" for example) was revisited as part of a Greatest Hits or retrospective LP. But, even then this would be an LP and not single acetate.

Love the guitars on this version.  We know they were testing the new studios for 'bleed' so that's how they came to do these sessions and perhaps this acetate was made for further technical testing of the studios that they could only assess by this method? Or maybe it has nothing to do with this at all...

Any chance John S Stuart could do something similar with the Hangman acetate he supposedly has in his possession?
