Hi guys, some geeza is selling 2 copies of the Christmas Is Awesome 1 track promo:-

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360024595639&_trksid=p2759.l1259

Are they rare?? I wouldn't mind a copy just don't wanna have to pay big bucks!

Cheers,

D

i didnt realise there were any promo copies of it.
im not a fan of promo copies, cos theyre usually just cd-r's with a white piece of paper with the song names printed on it. i could make it myself.

What are they worth?? I know you could say 'what ever people would pay', but what are rare promos worth?

well.. this one's a bit different as Christmas is Awesome isn't available on CD anywhere else.

the promos of Scared and Stux tend to go for less than the retail copies though.

My question: - Alright, can you also tell me if these cds are copies? the reason i ask is that everyone iv spoken to had no idea that these cds exsist.

Sellers relpy:- They are first issue CD's that have may or may not be officially released by the record company - but they have been officially produced and manufactured in-house of the record company. I think this song was only released via Itunes that is why this is a collectable CD. They are called "Promo" CD's - they are bought buy die-hard collectors. If you are not familiar with Promo CD's please do NOT bid.

Can anyone shed light on this?

that reply was useless.

the hideous records promos are printed CDRs produced by a cd duplication company, so yeah, they are copies. I don't think i've ever seen fake the promos on ebay that people have been suggesting on here.

I'll get a reply tonight or tomorrow morning about whether they're real or not.

What did he say Ric? How did he confirm their authenticity?

I'm in two minds now.

I was given one of these last month, no press release though.

It looks the same as the ebay ones but then I don't really know how real my one is
