designing the cover!
the acetate was cut from an exclusive 7 1/2 ips tape copy, on which all 4 songs had been re-EQ'ed and re-FX'ed (creating totally different versions).
this rare one of a kind disc was R. Stevie Moore's first ever 12" album *facsimile* (until April 1976's original Phonography test pressings).
the fragile sole surviving acetate was finally remastered to CD exactly 30 years later on Saturday October 15, 2005 (total 12 tracks, including the set played at 45 r.p.m., followed by the set as duped from superior original source tapes).
November 4th rejection letter from Island!
