Masters unhidden

We revealed last year that we'd located a "hidden master" tape containing what would have been The Distractions' debut record, recorded at Cargo Studios in 1978.  That tape was digitised and the wonderful tracks on it have been pored over by a chosen few.  Now, finally, this process is stepping up a gear as the Distractions retrospective project, three years in the planning, slowly comes to fruition thanks to Hidden Masters.  

This original master tape of side one may well be 'Nobody's Perfect', which is being remastered on 180 gsm vinyl, as well as being made available on CD for the first time.  The tape below is definitely the master of It Doesn't Bother Me.

This master tape comes with a little history.  It is Take #3 of Something For The Weekend, a single pulled off 'Nobody's Perfect' and re-recorded, produced by John Wood at Island Record's famous Basing Street Studios in London.
