    Marvin Gaye Acetate Singles Group of 2 (1966). Two outstanding one-sided acetates make up this lot. "Ain't That Peculiar" was a big hit in 1965, but this Capitol label gives a date of July 20, 1966. If it seems strange to mention Capitol Records, the explanation is that acetates would infrequently be made with seemingly dissociated labels (Marvin, of course, recorded on Motown's Tamla label in 1965), but it could happen when the acetate is created at a studio that's used by multiple record companies. This stunning 45 rpm 8" acetate comes in an Audiodiscs sleeve. "Take This Heart of Mine" peaked at #44 in 1966. This plain label shows a date of April 27, 1966, and the 45 rpm 10" acetate comes with a Transco sleeve. Condition of both acetates: NM 8. From the GRT Collection.
