Sometime In New York City

This disc was auctioned in August 2004 and probably dates from June 1972.
I have no more info than provided by the auction description. It can be assumed that this is the standard released mix even though the auction description states, "
it plays different to normal vinyl". I believe that reference was to the surface noise of the acetate.

Item location: Shepperton, Middlesex

John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Sometime In New York City. Double sided ACETATE LP from Bell Sound Studios, New York. The label on 1 side is perfect & the other side has a few bits missing from the top [see pic]. Vinyl looks VG, have played a couple of parts to check sound quality, & there is a little background noise, esp on run in grooves. This is not mint. This background noise may just be because it is an acetate, I dont know, I have never played one before, but it plays different to normal vinyl, & I know that they shouldnt really be played too often, if at all. Very heavy 'slab'. Under light the vinyl is a dark purple/red in colour & it has a few small surface marks & looks slightly dirty, so would recommend a thorough professional clean. There is a very small chip from the vinly on the outer edge, just before then run in groove starts [dosen't effect play] that reveals the metal center. Any Lennon fan or even Beatles fan would love to own a very very very special piece of Lennon vinyl, & you may not get this chance again. I do not know how many of these were made or if this is the only one? A very rare item. The track listing is typed on the labels, along with their duration & 'Apple Records Stereo'. The acetate is housed in a plain poly lined sleeve, but I have used a normal paper one for the photo.


Recorded February - March 1972.
