This is a real radio promo. Apparently some radio stations received a watermarked download (via Play MPE), others got this cd.

It hasn’t been confirmed if this is a cd-r or a silver cd. I think it’s a cd-r. The \"slim case\" looks just like the ones that come with cd-rs, and nothing like the cd cases they normally use for singles or promos.

My guess: cd-r + front insert, nothing more
I find it a bit weird that it is sealed and that it has such a sticker though…

I also think more of these will come on eBay later, so I’m not going to bid on this expensive first one.

A thought I just had: The promo probably doesn’t look like the promos we’re used to, because they haven’t been released by a record label.

now seeing that it doesn’t end for 5 days why on earth would anyone make that bidding go higher and higher…they all could have waited the day it ends to save themselves some $. That would be the smart thing to do

yeah I know, but imagine if these people would get a clue about bidding on a starting bid of 99 cents and wait til the last hour or less, then some items would be a little cheaper
things could be so much easier if I ruled the world..LOL
not really

Exactly. Those promos run into the hundreds normally, so we will all get our fair share. Just be patient.

We will laugh about this in a month, when eBay is flooded with $5 copies and nobody is buying them anymore.

Quicker than we thought…. #2!!!

It looks the same as the other even though it says french. Probably all the same since there is no record label attached to the release (worldwide).

I think this promo cd is very rare because it’s like \"Muzzle\" or \"Drown\". These 2 singles have never been marketed.
I think there is only a handfull. Don’t you think ?

How rare it is depends on how many copies they make.

But maybe this is what you’re trying to say: This promo is more interesting than any other recent promo, because the song can’t be found anywhere else (yet). More people will want it, because they want GLOW on cd.
Compare that to a one-track promo cd for Tarantula or That’s the Way: only collectors are interested in those. People who want those songs on cd can buy or have bought Zeitgeist. They don’t see the point in buying the song again on a promo cd.

If GLOW would get a proper cd release, on a European single, or on a compilation cd somewhere, for example, I’m sure interest in this particular promo cd (cd-r?) will drop.

I think GLOW will be released as a European single.I think im going to try my luck on that frenchy one there.Aint going to bid much though.

Wonder how much people paid for a Tarantula promo cd when it first came out ? bought the EU/USA promos for a dollar each 10 months later after the official release date.

I hope so.

The extremely high price for the first one might convince more people to put their copy on eBay. (People who don’t want to go to the trouble for $5, but that are interested in a possible $100.) This would be a good thing for us, the buyers. Because the more copies on eBay, the cheaper the price will be.
