Acetate Records

Acetate, they are lacquer coated metal discs which were used to “cut” masters for records directly from the master tape. Then the metal disc is placed in a magnetic bath attracting metal particles which will become a negative of the sides, and become the stampers for the release. The acetate, being a positive can be played, but very few times without wearing the lacquer coating. These are 2 45’s intended for release on the Cascade label, but abandoned by Roy Ames in the ’60s. The acetates themselves becoming the only versions of these records that exist, since he never pressed them. T
