This is an interesting find. While assessing 1/4" acetate tapes from the 1950's, I came across this oddity. At first glance, it appears to be a weird 3 track recording.
After playing back through a full track mono head (and sitting in front of the machine in total confusion for a few minutes) I was able to determine that the tape originally had another song recorded at high level in full track mono, and then a new, lower level stereo song was recorded on top of it.
The skinny "middle track" is actually the leftover material from the mono song that wasn't able to be erased due to the NAB head gap of the stereo head. Since the newer song was recorded and played back with a stereo head, no one noticed that the other song was there. Mystery solved!

Released in 1966, if this album means nothing to you, either you haven't heard it or you possibly have and regret it. Not me though, I love it. What is politely termed as 'Outsider' music. Do feel free to look on the internet the answers are there. #samchalpin #myfatherthepopsinger #parody #outsidermusic #recordcollection #recordsofinstagram #vinylsoundsbetter #vinylrecordsofinstagram #vinyllover #vinyllover #vinylcollection #albumcovers #albumartwork #vinyljunkies #vinylporn #albumartworkilove #vinyljunkiesunite #monorecords #mono #monorecording

Folding laundry and listening to a beautiful Mexican record by the Bob Moore Orchestra. Mixed in glorious mono.

One playback head, one mono track, two reels of acetate from 1966. Mono...it's what all the cool kids are doing.

Completely refurbished by myself: a Dual 265W, 78rpm only, record player from 1951 in a wooden box.
What a beauty it is!

This reel originally contained a full track mono recording from May 1959. Later that year, someone recorded a half track mono session on top of it.
This picture (via a magnetic viewer) shows the point where they hit the stop button on the half track session.
I love my job.
