Description

Offered for sale is an original acetate for George Carlin’s 1974 comedy LP, Toledo Window Box.

About this copy: The cover is VG, with some ring wear and the name of the artist written on the cover.  The disc is VG++, with just a couple of sleeve scuffs.  It’s likely that this acetate has only been played once or twice.

Background: Acetates are individually cut on a lathe for purposes of either evaluation or for plating as part of the process of making a record stamper.  An acetate is a heavy metal platter with a coating that can be easily cut with a lathe.  For any given title, only a handful of acetates are cut.  On rare occasions, they’re used as advance promotional pressings.  While they are playable on a turntable as you might play a regular record, acetates do not hold up well to repeated play, due to the soft surface.  Due to their relative scarcity, we rarely have acetates for sale.

Toledo Window Box was the fourth hit record in a row for George Carlin after Class Clown, FM&AM, and Occupation:Foole, and like its three predecessors, it sold well and received a gold record award from the RIAA.  Allmusic gave the album 4 1/2 stars and described it as “devastatingly funny.”
