Full Description

Rare 1970 one-sided metal acetate of side one of the album "Self Portrait" with a different song sequence. This acetate was personally owned by Bob Dylan.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, while living at 94 MacDougal in Greenwich Village NYC, Dylan rented the ground floor of 124 West Houston, just around the corner, to use as a studio. After he moved out in the early 1970s, the building's owner found a collection of 147 Bob Dylan acetates, evidently left by Dylan when he moved. Over 40 years later the executors of the late owner's estate discovered them in a loft above the bedroom. This is one of those acetates, as documented in articles by the New York Times and Rolling Stone magazine.

Includes photocopy of signed letter from the executor of her estate as well as a Letter of Authenticity from Jeff Gold of Record Mecca.

Generic Columbia Recording Studio label with handwritten song titles (not Dylan's writing). Several small bumps in the acetate along the edges, but they do not affect play as they are in the lead-in area.
