The Ramones – “Leave Home” 2 Disc Acetates
Two single-sided LP acetates of the Ramones’ Leave Home (Remaster 2017) from the archive of legendary Ramones producer/engineer/associate Ed Stasium. These were used during the production process, and the cover of each disc has been signed by Stasium. Included is Ed Stasium’s signed letter of authenticity.
As acetates, these were cut directly from the original master tapes. Queen guitarist Brian May told Record Collector Magazine ‘The acetate’s appeal is that it’s a snapshot in time. When you’re cutting an acetate, you’ve got as far as your mix, and you’re testing to see if you’ve got it right… Why have I always kept them? Well, of course, when you start off, you’re immensely excited and proud of what you’ve done, and you want to show your family and everyone…These are history, the minute they’re finished.’
Ed Stasium’s included letter reads:
This letter is to authenticate a 2 disc Reference Acetate Set of the Ramones album ‘Leave Home’ [Remaster 2017] from my personal collection. During my long association with the Ramones, I worked on nine of their original albums, as engineer, mixer, producer, additional guitarist and backing vocalist. I have also engineered, remixed, and produced numerous demos, reissues and live albums for the band. This reference acetate was used during the album’s production, and I have signed the sleeve. Gabba Gabba Hey! [signed] Ed Stasium.
These acetates are both in Mint condition, and of course, cut directly from the master tapes, insuring their exceptional fidelity.
Stasium was the original engineer on Leave Home and the producer, remixer and engineer on the 2017 remaster. A great Ramones collectible, directly from the source.
