Singles: Promo Only
This section presents all promotional-only singles released by Prince and/or , regardless of format or variant, which details will be found in the corresponding single page. The section only includes promotional singles that have not been made available as retail releases in any form.
Promotional singles that were released in only one country are not classified as promotional, unless a stamp on the cover or label identifies them as promotional items. Similarly, singles pressed by Prince/NPG Records and made available for purchase at concerts are not considered as promotional items here, even though limited numbers were pressed.
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.
