Scepter Studios acetate version
Norman Dolph's original acetate pressing of the Scepter Studios material contains several recordings that would make it onto the final album, though many are different mixes of those recordings and three are different takes entirely. The acetate was pressed on April 25, 1966, shortly after the recording sessions. It would resurface decades later when it was bought by collector Warren Hill of Montreal, Canada in September 2002 at a flea market in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City for $0.75.[14] Hill put the album up for auction on eBay in November. On December 8, 2006, a winning bid for $155,401 was placed,[15] but not honored.[16] The album was again placed for auction on eBay and was successfully sold on December 16, 2006 for $25,200.[17]

It is important to note that ten songs were recorded during the Scepter sessions[3] and only nine appear on the acetate cut. Dolph recalls "There She Goes Again" being the missing song[18] (and, indeed, the version of "There She Goes Again" that appears on the final LP is attributed to the Scepter Studios session).

Though rumors have circulated concerning an eventual official release of this version of the album,[19] this has yet to be confirmed or announced by any major record label. However, a ripped version of the acetate began circulating the internet in January 2007.[20][21] Bootleg versions of the acetate tracks have also become available on vinyl and CD.[22]
