Yoko Ono Xmas Message promo CD

16 December 2013

Store date: 25 December 1991

Here’s a promo CD from Rykodisc, released in late 1991. The record label was prepping to release a gigantic (six CD) Yoko Ono boxed set in early 1992.

The disc contained only two tracks. The first was a 3:30 “greeting” by Yoko. The second, the same, but a mere seven seconds in length.

The store was barely six months old at this time, and we had yet to establish solid business relationships with any of the major label distribution companies. The many great independent record labels, however – and Rykodisc was one such company with whom we ended up enjoying a terrific connection – were eager to generate a foothold with a young retail business. Thus, the receipt of promotional items such as this one was a valued occasion.
