The Promotional Album (1969)
*Click for MORE ROLLING STONES TRIVIA
Although known as The Promotional Album, the album title is simply THE ROLLING STONES (London, RSD-1) This was a special radio promo album pressed in a limited edition in October 1969 and not for sale to the public. It was intended to be a “program aid” to disc jockeys since it covered the two “greatest hits” LPs and also included the yet-to-be- released “Love in Vain.” Two hundred copies were shipped to the U.K. for journalists, since there was no commercial radio there at the time. There’s a ‘A Special Radio Promotion Album In Limited Edition – Not For Sale’ text on the cover.
The backcover reads “This album has been prepared for radio stations only by The Rolling Stones as a program aid. It was felt that most stations have in their library both volumes of The Rolling Stones Hits LP’s (NPS-1 And NPS-3) and that one more LP, assembled especially for radio stations, could be of great help in programming. This LP, consisting of 14 Rolling Stones selections, spans the complete recorded history of The Rolling Stones beginning with one of their earliest recordings (Route 66) and ending with a brand new selection which will be included in The Rolling Stones’ next LP” (referring to Love In Vain)
