MONSTROUSLY RARE PRE-RELEASE TRUE 1ST PRESSING “PROMOTIONAL NOT FOR SALE ONLY” ONLY MONAURAL MIX DJ EXCLUSIVELY RADIO STATION BY ATLANTIC RECORDS “NOT TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC” SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL ONLY FOR AIRPLAY COPY

 ULTRA RARE ORIGINAL PROMOTIONAL WIDE VERSION 4 1/2" x 1 7/8" OF THE BLACK LARGE SONG TITLE HYPE STICKER 

ORIGINAL ATLANTIC RECORDS 1841 BROADWAY, NEW YORK, N.Y. ADDRESS WHITE “SAMPLE COPY NOT FOR SALE” LABELS WITHOUT THE ‘SD’ PREFIX BEFORE CATALOG NUMBER AND STEREO BANNER

ATLANTIC RECORDS SENT THIS PROMOTIONAL COPY EXCLUSIVELY TO RADIO STATIONS. ONLY FEW OF THESE PROMO COPIES WERE TRUE MONAURAL MIX PRESSINGS, WHICH ARE BECOMING IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND. MONO VERSION OF THIS ALBUM WAS NEVER COMMERCIALLY RELEASED IN ANY WAY OR FORM. THE RECORD IS PRESSED ON A THICK HEAVY DUTY INFLEXIBLE VINYL WHICH WAS USED FOR THE FIRST OR VERY EARLY PRESSINGS. THE SOUND ON SUCH A THICK VINYL PRESSING IS DYNAMIC, VIVID, AND EVEN DRAMATIC. ANY DIGITAL COPY IS INCOMPARABLE TO THE OUTSTANDING ANALOGUE SOUND OF THIS PRESSING
