Archival Tape Edition No. 6 Nina Simone / I Put a Spell on You (USA Edition)
This incredible edition will directly zoom you into the true soul of our big MASTERCUT dream of producing the world's most authentic records. Even though the original tapes from these legendary sessions between 1964 and 1965 have candidly aged and matured with quite a few distinctly hearable "characteristics" like ticks, pops, and crackles, the listening experience is nevertheless mind-blowing. With this truly extraordinary lady singing and screaming, sounding like she is standing right next to you, touching and caressing your soul with her voice - this edition will definitely put a spell on you!!

Producing each and every MASTERCUT edition by hand, piece by piece in our small manufactory is not only very time consuming but also has quite a few challenges and limitations. On the other hand, it also allows us to introduce a very special service to you as of today. From now on we can offer you the option to personalize your new MASTERCUT Edition when pre-ordering it in our online shop. Please select the product variant PERSONALIZED and thereafter fill in up to 33 characters (including spaces) into the field "YOUR WORDS HERE".
When processing your order, we will produce your personal Linotype line from your words and hot foil it onto the cover of your edition during the production process.
Due to the fact that our MASTERCUTS are no stock items but cut piece by piece in real time by a small team here in Vienna, we kindly ask for your understanding that based on the overwhelming global demand for our editions production, assembly and delivery of your very personal MASTERCUT treasures can currently take up to 4 weeks. All orders will be processed in the order received without any exceptions. Thank you so much for your patience.
