Here is the promo CD featuring 'The Diamond Church Street Choir' & 'Boxer'.

It comes in a glossy card sleeve and only 100 have been 'pressed' for distribution to radio stations (initally just 50, but then another 50).

Rarer than vinyl ...

Thats pretty cool what astounds me is the limited nature of such recordings on CD-R but they are worth so little. Not that you are looking to sell but there are loads of shops that sells off loads of promos for a few quid each. Which baffles me somewhat in reality its no different to a limited 7" or something.

Wow. Thats almost as good as the boxer one.

I want them to do a cover like that for every song.

Stay Lucky would probably be a old pressed four leaf clover.
The Queen of Lower Chelsea could be a crown

rest are a little trickier, but you could work something out

I don't think this is a CD-R, unlike the UK TGA promos, which look lightscribed as well. This is properly printed and, of course, has a properly printed card cover with a unique design (which makes collecting it interesting).

[ahem, I thought the picture in your message was pertinent, but now see it's your signature; not starting a bad habit, are we?]

Hmm... Going to release a 7 inch of this as well, maybe? I don't get vinyl but I think it would be cool if they kept releasing stuff on vinyl.

Yeah I'm hoping they release both Boxer and Diamond Street on vinyl. Love the artwork for both..and both of the promos have been hard to find and/or really expensive.

That's the dreadfully cheap UK one (1 track only). CD-R, with paper inset in PVC sleeve.

I thought this would be of interest to collectors of TGA promo cds. I've never seen this one-track version of Diamond Church Street Choir before:

I picked this two-track up for £0.99 on ebay the other week. Not to gloat but worth keeping an eye out if anyone's interested and I'll flag up any others I see.
