A hidden master

The Distractions' celebrated debut record was 1978's You're Not Going Out Like That on Tony Davidson's little TJM label.  It was nearly so different. This master tape contains what could and perhaps should have been their debut:




The notes on the reverse confirm the date it was recorded (before the TJM 'debut') along with a roll-call, technical details and the all-important track-list. There is also the studio's sticker - none other than the celebrated Cargo Studios in Rochdale run by John Brierley.  It's not that surprising when you consider that pals and label-mates, The Fall and Joy Division famously recorded there:




Thanks to the Hidden Masters team at FX Studios, the contents of this master tape have been expertly and fully recovered and, all being well, may be available for your pleasure on The Distractions' fully-remastered retrospective out later this year.
