    What you have is a promo version that is used for radio broadcast and commercial purposes. Frankly, it probably decreases the value of the album, like so many 'cut-outs' and factory seconds. I used to see these all the time in used vinyl stores and they were usually a part of 'fire sales' when stations went out of business. Broadcast radio is a dying breed these days and many CDs are being flooded into the market that are the same way.

    I suppose that someone may be interested in these promos, but I doubt you will get rich on it. Don't retire yet!

    I've got a couple of promotional albums, not sure if they're worth anything tho. Go to a Book store and check out a collector's guide. That should answer your question.

    it might add a couple of bucks to it's worth to a hardcore beatles/george harrison completist...but the real value lies in the condition of the record and cover...the closer to mint they are; the more you can ask for...
