Promotional Copy was recorded and released in 2000. Produced by Ed Rose, it was the follow-up to the band's debut album Greatest Hits 1984-1987. Due to the misleading nature of the title, several retailers including Best Buy and Sam Goody sent back entire shipments of the album, because they believed that they were actually sent promotional copies of the album rather than the album itself.
Reggie And the Full Effect "Promotional Copy" was never intended to be released. We have only an unidentified person to thank for the recovery of the master tapes. Some of the song titles and samples were not titled so we named them as we saw fit. The length of the album was also unsure at the time, so please forgive all mistakes and thank you for supporting the collective works of Reggie And the Full Effect.
