I spotted this Flipp CD rarity on Ebay about a week ago and knew immediately I had to make it mine - it arrived in the mail yesterday!
The Album Network
Various Artists - Rock Tune Up #164 (03/28/97)
PROMO Only CD
"Album Network" was a highly regarded radio industry trade magazine (now shuttered) which contained important information, music sales and air play charts for/about radio stations on a weekly basis. For a fee, individual record labels could include a track (or tracks) on each week's Album Network sampler CD (one copy was included with each magazine) giving radio industry people and DJs a sneak peek at upcoming releases they might be inclined to promote and/or add to their playlists. These CDs were strictly promotional items and were never available for sale at retail and were pressed in extremely limited numbers.
