Find My Way - Unreleased/unknown Version (Now Identified)


Amsterdam Russ

Recommended Posts

Two vids of the Casper Peters song on YouTube have comments from family/friends. Both make it clear that Peters lived and worked in South Florida. One comment states that Peters gigged at the Marco Polo Hotel. There are even email addresses from people connected to Peters if you wanted to get serious or stalker-like about finding out more!  :D 

 

Here's one of the Casper Peter's clips with comments underneath it.

 

 

Reading through this thread again, I see that the clip to the Art Posey track is no longer live. That's because I accidentally deleted my YouTube channel about a year ago. However, I did upload it again here...

NOTE:  The acetate was recently sold for $100.  Was there only 1 copy??   https://www.popsike.com/Art-Posey-of-Art-Honey-UNISSUED-1970s-1-SIDE-SOUL-ACETATE-45-Find-My-Way-HEAR/203257060760.html

 

It is usual for more than one acetate (known as Laquer in the industry to be made) In general, there are probably fewer than a half dozen acetates cut of any single and they will be rare. On very rare occasions, when a record company was in a hurry to get their album or single to radio stations, they would send acetates directly to them. These were then usually supplemented with regular vinyl pressings as soon as it could be arranged, as acetates were and are entirely unsuited to repeated play, as might be warranted by having them played on the radio.

I think all of that is well known, but thanks.

Just to clarify, the acetate sold on eBay just recently and shown in the eBay link is not the one I posted about back in 2012. Mine is a publisher's acetate - and as documented - allegedly came from the estate of Isaac Hayes, and which had been seized along with many other things during the course of his bankruptcy. Also as documented in my earlier posts in this thread, the acetate came with a copy of the Casper Peters version with the sleeve annotated with the question to Hayes that asked "Dear Isaac, All I want to know is why?" (and initialed "JM", ie, Melfi himself).

The more recent acetate is hugely interesting, although in a much poorer condition - presumably because Mr Hayes never played the one sent to him. Why would he?

I suspect the more recent one was pressed at the studio for in-house reference only, and as such is also extremely rare to the degree that it - in itself - is a one-off. 

Regardless, it's absolutely fantastic to know of its existence. Superb!

Yes, the acetate's been identified as Art Posey. Based on the info received and the similarities in vocal style, I think there's little reason to doubt that unless someone comes along and knows better.  :thumbsup: 

This might be interesting for some
