This is a very nice french cd promo, gatefold unique art etc, well worth the investment. I own a copy and these do not come up to often. I am sure there are people that would pay alot more for this. And a lot cheaper than other $1000 + french promos!!!!!!!!

I think the acetate for this is for sale now as well. Let me check.

But yes, Bryan, 70 Euro for this is pretty respectable.

manillascissor is referring to this one:

I’ve seen that twice, and bought them both times. The highest price I paid was 75 Euro, while it’s more rare as the standard French promo for Greatest Hits that Bryan shows us. :wink:

this IS the acetate… (the one in the top post and as such thus the one Arthur quotes up on SPFreaks)
all delabel promo’s from this era are cdr/acetates, aren’t they?

Yeah somehow, but there are 2 different types Sven. A rather common type, which we just call a promo:

http://www.spfreaks.com/Default.aspx?pa … LS&item=41 (the one on eBay)

And a bit more rare type which we call an acetate promo:

http://www.spfreaks.com/Default.aspx?pa … LS&item=40

The difference between these 2 are very obvious. The first 2CD set is packed in an artfully cardsleeve, they paid more attention to the cds itself and overall, it’s a promo that a label would be proudly sending around. The other one is just a CD-R set with a sticker slapped on it (which they indeed did more often at Delabel around those years) and the artwork: what artwork? Piece of b/w paper in a plastic sleeve… Very rare though.
