Acetates (7 inch)

Acetate Demo Disc
According to "Collecting The original U.K. Pressings, 1962-70" by Mitch Scharoff, Before each Beatles record made its way into a shop so it could purchased, there were a few steps it went through to become the actual released product. In this chapter we'll examine 1) Acetates, 2) Test Pressings, 3) Promos and 4) Factory Samples.
An acetate is a recorded disk made of a thin metallic base, coated with a layer of vinyl. Their sound quality deteriorates after a number of plays, and they are a little heavier than common records. It can contain a song in any of various stages of completion - whether an alternate mix, a different take, an unfinished version of a song, or the final, released version.

COMMENTS
It is an Audiodisc acetate record. (maybe 1970's cutting)

It bears the label Audiodisc recording blank. Producers and band members would listen to and preview the disc before it was put out for final press.
Beatles' Baby, You're A Rich Man" is on it.
Audiodisc is not a label, but an american manufacturer of lacquerdiscs. As such, records with this label, are likely to exist in either one copy, or a very limited number of copies.
