    Beatles Love Songs LP Mother Metal Disc (Capitol 11711, 1977). In the record producing order of things, one step leading to the next, it started with a Master tape, from which a metal, vinyl-coated disc called an Acetate is produced. Then follows three more metal discs: the Master, the Mother, and the Stamper, from which the final vinyl record was made. The Mother can actually be played, but it's not advisable - the metal grooves are rough on a stylus! This Mother disc of the Fab's 1977 retrospective is of Side 1 and appears to be VG 5 or VG-EX 6 in grade. The glue marks on the enclosed cover suggest the disc may have been intended for use as a Platinum Record award.
