Please Fall Acetate SingleRare acetate single of Please Fall In Love With Me / Don’t You Go produced for WEA Records by Strawberry Mastering (UK) Ltd of Westminster, London. Made around 1st June 1981.

An acetate disc is created by using a recording lathe to cut an audio-signal-modulated groove into the surface of a special lacquer coated blank disc, a real time operation requiring expensive, delicate equipment and expert skill for good results.

In the vinyl record manufacturing process, an acetate master disc is cut and electroforming is used to make negative metal moulds or stamps that are used to press thousands of vinyl copies of the master. Within the industry, acetates are also used for evaluating the quality of the tape-to-disc transfer. they are not intended for sale to the public and are highly prized for their rarity. They can be played on any normal record deck but will suffer from wear more quickly than commercially produced vinyl records.
