"Paths Of Victory" - 8" acetate of Witmark demo, MPHC Reference Recording (no catalogue number) (USA), recorded 1963, offered for sale by auction, Dec 1992:

PathsAcetate.JPG (25976 bytes)
Picture from "Isis" 46, Dec 1992/Jan 1993
R-0465 Paths Of Victory - Witmark demo (different from version released in 1991 on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3, see International Album Releases)
This is no longer a rarity because it was released officially in 2010 on the Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music set
The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 - The Witmark Demos 1962-1964.

"MPHC" stands for “Music Publishers Holding Corporation,” of which Witmark was a part. Some sources give the date of this Witmark demo as Dec 1963, although the Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 version was recorded on Columbia Studios, New York, on 12 Aug 1963, which would place any publishing company demo somewhat earlier. This single-sided 8" acetate is housed in an "audiodisc" generic sleeve, see 7" Single Sleeves.

Thanks to Derek Barker of "Isis" magazine for the information. For three 1963 MPHC acetates of Long Ago, Far Away, Quit Your Lowdown Ways and I'd Hate To Be You On That Dreadful Day, see 1963. For a 1964 MPHC acetate of I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met), see Mono Singles & EPs 1962-64. For a 1965 Columbia acetate of Positively 4th Street in an "audiodisc" sleeve, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1965. Tim Dunn saw an MPHC acetate with Let Me Die In My Footsteps at the Bob Dylan exhibition at the Experience Music Project, Seattle, WA, in Jan 2005.
