The Rare Acetate “Going Nowhere” in very Limited Vinyl Release

Tramp Records are very pleased to announce a very limited release of the original 1971 recording ‘Going Nowhere‘ by ‘Your Friend Spyk‘, or sometimes known as the ‘Acetate‘ album. This was the first recording from the van Spyk/Friend partnership and was limited to a total of four (4) acetate copies; one copy for each of the contributing musicians. One (1) of the originals were hawked around to the recording companies and music publishers and is believed to have ended up in the hands of a collector. We had the great good fortune to get access to a very near mint copy of this rare recording and have now decided to release a very limited vinyl issue of the original recording. The release will be strictly limited to two hundred and fifty (250) vinyl albums and five hundred (500) CD’s. So that the vinyl collectors can keep their vinyl record investment in good condition, each vinyl album will be sold with a free copy of the CD version. This will mean that only two hundred and fifty (250) CD’s are available for sale to the public.

The Acetate . . .

Was originally recorded in 1971. This often ‘bootlegged’ recording was the first album written, and recorded, by Rob Van Spyk and Terry Friend, titled ‘Going Nowhere‘ by ‘Your Friend Spyk‘. And now re titled as ‘The Acetate’ by Van Spyk and Friend’.


Album label “The Acetate” Side One 2016

Originally produced as purely a demo recording,”The Acetate” was recorded in a very short period of time in quite a primitive recording studio in Henlow, Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom. Recorded in straight takes the final product is sparse and raw whilst the instrumentation and arrangements are simple with out the complications of an over produced presentation.

    Hi Rob,
    I received my exemplary of the vinyl (and the bonus CD) yesterday and everything is perfect. I already listened to the album several times and it’s truly a great record.
    Thanks so much for providing us so great music.
    Please let me know about a future re-issue on vinyl of the “Follow the Sun” album.
    I would like to be your first customer for the R.Van Spyk LP.
    Best regards.

    Hello Etienne,

    Thank you very much for you kind words and
    compliments; we do appreciate you.

    It’s quite possible that we might do a limited
    vinyl release of the ‘Follow the Sun’ album in
    the future.

    Our best wishes to you.
