Rolling Stones – Alternate ‘Emotional Rescue’ LP Acetate From Collection of Rolling Stones Records President500

An alternate acetate of the Rolling Stones Emotional Rescue album, from the estate of Earl McGrath, ex-president of Rolling Stones Records.   This acetate has a more than one minute longer version of “Dance (Pt. 1)” and a slightly longer version of “Where the Boys Go”.   There are likely differences in the final mix and EQ as well.  This acetate is dated 5/9/80; the album was released nearly six weeks later on June 20, 1980.

The accompanying letter of authenticity from author Joe Hagan explains, in part, This acetate was part of a collection belonging to the late Earl McGrath, vice president of Atlantic Records, president of Rolling Stone Records, and manager of the Rolling Stones, 1977 to 1983.  It was initially housed in the walk-in closet in Earl’s apartment, where he kept his personal record collection, studio tapes, acetates and test printings… As the author of a biography on Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann Wenner, I interviewed Earl McGrath…[and] after Earl died in 2016…I acquired his studio tapes, acetates and test printings from the Camilla and Earl McGrath Foundation.”

  1. Dance (Pt. 1) 5:50  (4:23 on released version)
