Got the NOT MUSIC promo cd!!!

Yesterday I went to the Music & Video Exchange shop in Notting Hill, London and saw the promo of the new Stereolab album on display in one of the shopping windows.
What a surprise! It was an expensive 15 but I had to get it! It's funny as it was exactly in the same place where at the time I had found previous Stereolab promo releases.
It comes in a typical cardboard promo sleeve and it has the grey background artwork like the iTunes version.
The cd is a proper one and not a cd-r.

I won't be able to listen to it until Monday though as I am currently away for work.
I will try to post a review during the week (I will be travelling again on Tuesday), although I am pretty sure that, if there are promo copies around, it will leak out very soon. But it won't be me as I know that even if you guys will eventually buy it, some other people might not.
So I am sure you will understand that I don't wish to do this to my favorite band.

Or maybe this is what I will do: Tim and Laetitia, if you are reading this post, promise me that you will carry on as Stereolab (even without the departed good old Andy Ramsay) or I will give this recording to everyione!!!
Just kidding :-)

Of course you should not post a promo on here, that wouldn't respect the band. And of course if promos are out, it will leak quickly online. And of course we will all listen to it. I think most of us fans on here will buy it as well. You really lucked out. I want to hear it and I don't want to wait until November.

I am sure you will be able to hear it pretty soon.
I am actually surprised that it's not already available for "illegal" download yet.
And I know that all of us on this forum will buy it, even more than 1 copy (3 in my case!).

Might even be 4 copies if they put extra tracks on the Japanese issue. How silly can a grown up fan be: promo cd, standard cd, clear vinyl, Japanese cd!

I know i bought the Japanese version of CC.

Isn't selling a promo copy illegal? You wouldn't think a store would take a risk like that for $30. Online and auctions is one thing. But to risk loosing distribution rights and potential law suits, as the operate on such slim budgets.

And it was in their display window. I see them in the used section of the record stores all the time. But you mean before the album even comes out right?

Haha, well, someone will buy it to collect it. Would be nice to have. But it'll leak before that auction's over.

I saw a press copy of XTC's Apple Venus with a great 'A is for Apple' sleeve in the very same shop - still sort of wish I'd bought it when I could. I reckon it's a nice little perk for music writers to flog all their free promo discs there.
