I think they'll see the light of day, there has already been a digital made from them. Once that happens its just a matter of time. And I can be patient, oh yes my pretties......

I also dont hold any hope of hearing whatever interesting snippets are on the discs. I doubt anyone who just forked out 10k for the items is going to be overly altruistic in sharing the digital recordings. Perhaps our one rsmote hope is approaching the selling agency and seeing if the will allow a copy of the file for a fee. Otherwise we are sol in ever hearing it.

So I wonder who bought them?



Rick: Write 'em up, Chum...
Chumlee: What are ass tates?
Rick: ACETATES!
Corey: They're old records or something
Old Man: I'll smile when someone buys those things from us...

Here is what I know; Brian worked his ass off on this record whether some here want to believe that or not; let the music speak for itself.

Hey guys, I'm pretty zonked out on painkillers and cough syrup now. Any idea why I appear to be 10,000 into my overdraft and this bailiff is taking all my stuff?

Congratulations, yours was the winning bid and you are officially the new owner of a recently discovered collection of Bay City Rollers acetates!

Hopefully you recall that trans-continental telephone call you made asking me to place a proxy bid in your name for this collection...I tried to press the issue and clarify that you wanted to pay that much money for them, as 10,000 sounded a bit steep, but you'd hear none of it and insisted on placing the bid. "I want them, and I'll pay 10,000, end of story, place the bid!" was the exact request.

The gem of the set is a very early version of "Saturday Night", which at that time was still called "Thursday Night", but after the producer asked the other band members to chant "T-H-U-R-S-D-A-Y" while crawling around on the studio floor during a long session, the rhythm guitarist refused to participate, and they soon added handclaps, sped up the tempo, and changed the hook to Saturday. The acetate now in your collection includes what may be the only surviving copy of the "Thursday chant version" of that classic song.

Honestly, I thought you meant the Beach Boys acetate collection, but you were very insistent...

I wonder how these were digitized and by who. Was it a professional job or just someone who had no idea what s/he was doing, running the output of a whatever record player into the soundcard of a laptop or something? I am scared.

Maybe VDP bought them back.  Has Lee Dempsey been around lately?

Hi Cam!  Hello  Yep, still around, but a wife and a kid can really put a damper on the old Beach Boys collecting budget.  $10,000 is WAY out of my league these days.  Now when I was 28 and single...

About as steep as I've been able to get lately is $300 for a still-sealed original mono Pet Sounds!  Shocked

LOL!  But if you think $10,000 is bad, there's a set of Partridge Family TV show production discs on eBay right now for a measly $1,000,000...

Phil Cohen bought them. I am certain.

It's his definitive trump card for when he'll have returned to these hallowed grounds.

He's out for revenge, folks. You'll see...

You convinced me!

Thank goodness he's banned, imagine him bitching endlessly about Capitol not wanting to spend that little money and... no, wait, don't imagine him.

Phil wouldn't be interested in the acetates anyway, he's obsessed with 'CD product'.

I paid $63 for test pressings of BWPS.

I figured if the new 2 LP set was going for close to $50, who needs a LP jacket
when you can have early stamper test pressings.

Besides I didn't have the CD either, BWPS was something missing from my collection.

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

Old Man: I'll smile when someone buys those things from us...


This would make for an excellent scripted episode (because they all are...). Rick buys precious Beach Boys SMiLE acetates. Corey writes them up and leaves them on the counter. Chumlee uses them as frisbees in the warehouse while eating Subway five-dollar-footlongs as the Old Man takes a nap.

Did they sell? I put them in the shopping cart, twice, and it rang me up for two for a mere $20,000, until I removed them from the cart. This was a few minutes ago. Yet, it mentioned the word "sold" at the bottom of the description, before I added them.  Shipping is only $20. What a bargain!
