Vinyl will typically have a promo notch cut out near the top of the spine of the sleeve. Some CDs also display this "notching". I’ve seen MANY CDs use the hole, and usually, no big deal. But it was done with the Gish gold promo. Most of the time, it’s legit, but is typically the size of a hole-punch for paper. Personally, don’t recall a vinyl with the barcode hole…[/quote:yiwbgmnh]

Those cuts in vinyl covers / spines or other sides are also just made to mark that release should not be sold for regular price. So not at least not always used as promo when there are cut-out. Also there are one corner cutted out and as mentioned hole-punches, which have same meaning: promo or reduced price.
