Bob Dylan- Subterranean Homesick Blues 12" Acetate Record

This is the only known acetate to have ever surfaced of Dylan's iconic 1965 hit, Subterranean Homesick Blues. It is from 1965, and was created by Sound Makers Inc. from New York City. There are 7 tracks on side 1, and 1 track on side 2. These all seem to be the same take, but different mixes. I believe that some of these mixes have never been released. Tracks 5 & 6 both feature the heavy/crunchy electric guitar much more strongly. The track that is on side 2 has areas where the volume suddenly gets brighter/louder, as if an engineer or producer was tinkering with different ideas. Track 3 has a short spoken intro, probably by the producer

Record is VG, there is some light scuffing and the record plays with some light noise, but does not overwhelm the music. Record is housed in a plain manila sleeve. There is a small, minor tear on side 2 label. Both labels have handwritten titles

This acetate emerged from the Woodstock, NY area in the early 90's, and has been in the collection of a private collector for the last 20+ years. It is believed to have once been owned by Albert Grossman, Dylan's manager from the 1960's

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own this rare piece of music history!
