What is a promotional recording?
A promotional item is a pressed vinyl disc, compact disc or cassette, made for promotional purposes, in contrast to an in-store release. Such recordings are not available for retail purposes, and are often stamped "Promotional Only Not For Sale". They are pressed by record companies to serve several purposes, the main one being marketing to the media, (including television and radio), distributors and DJ’s. While a promotional recording may be pressed for a single project, not every promotional recording becomes a commercial release.
A promotional recording can also represent a later phase in the making of an item before its commercial release. Previous formats such as acetates and test pressings are not promotional recordings, and therefore are not listed here.
