Rather odd that Hollywood Records would put out a promo with tracks from a show which isn't even being released. Hmm.

Hi,

This single is a promo single given out free with the purchase of ROTC at independant record stores(as in stores that aren't chains like Sam Goodys of FYE).

I got one when I bought ROTC at Vintage Vinyl in Fords NJ. I was going to get the Best Buy version with the bonus dvd, but this seemed more interesting.

Hope this helped,
Thomas

So that's Hollywood Records' marketing strategy...

Instead of getting the general public to buy the album into charts,
they're going to release a different version for every store, and exploit the obsessive fans. :P
