i retract my earlyer statement as you know when i get a drinkin i start making less sense, but o. k . i now own cd single promo what the hell is it this time. great cover that was as far the second cd purchased on ebay i did not know about the first one or that this cd existed untill this thread existed so i thank the author,i paid what i did but i bidded 3 times the amount that i paid for knowing, i own something that makes it rare, you all had the same chance to own it, if they produced multi amounts it wouldnt be that special , i got it you dont na na na na na just kidding ,i think carl van breukelen said it right in a previous thread collecting has no cost !dont hate the players and dont hate the game ,thats what makes sparks so special that we can obtain everythin they have release through going on 50 years, i am only missing ,french 45 confusion,just got back from heaven cd promo, mexico when i am with you 45 and album if you have and want to sell pm me i got cash, thank you all, faithfully sparks

maybe its worth contacting sparks promoters or record company directly?

its quite common for bands still to release CD singles but these tend to be online only which makes sense.

I would love to buy a Sparks CD single and Im sure if there was a small pressing these would sell out.

Count me in!

crazy paying 56 for 1 track that's going to be on the album, but I do get the collecting aspect for some people.
Sparks management are clearly missing a trick here! lots of legacy acts still release limited edition singles.
They can even have no.1s on the vinyl singles chart I know Blondie and Bowie have regular vinyl no.1s!

These CD promo's are selling for big money, another one sold today for 45. (What the hell is it this time) Maybe if all the singles had been release as CD and not just download, there could of been a chance Sparks got into the single charts.

I'm pretty sure BMG, and not Sparks management, decides on the release formats.

Unfortunately promo singles do go down in value after a few years. I was able to buy Good Morning promo for a couple of pounds. I'm patient i can wait.
