Hi,

I've created a new catagory in the SistersWiki, i.e. Acetates And Testpressings...

There's not yet much written in there or in the according pages. And also there is not all that much known about these items.

Therefore, please ... if any of you have anything to contribute in information or pictures, this were extremely welcome.

Enjoy, however, what you might find in there so far ... :wink: ...

no idea what the hell the BE acetate is but it is not original, digital mastering was in its infancy during the early 80's!

No, the BE acetate is from Germany as far as I know. It's a limited series of 15 pieces made. A similar item exists for the Flood 2 7" bootleg with the no. of copies (acetates) from the latter being less than 15 (c. 6-10). These items are bootlegs and not acetates of official releases :wink:

They need to have booklets, postcards & a random "#/50 copies" scrawled on the cover to qualify as genuine Greek mega rare issues.

:innocent:

The BE acetate did exist in the late 80s at least. Take a look in this thread and read the comments: http://www.myheartland.co.uk/viewtopic. ... highlight=

Yes, I know. However, I'm talking of a different item here. I did not mean the acetate of the official BE 7"'release, but of a limited acetate release of a bootleg. Hence, also more a bootleg than an acetate. I hope, this makes it clear :wink:
