BBC Radio 1 Emergency DAT CD
http://www.ebay.com/itm/331031031689

This was an interesting pickup, certainly for a pound. Wouldn't be many of these that escape the BBC. Haven't seen one before anyway. Found some history info:

An emergency DAT backup, as the name suggests is a digital audio tape (DAT) kept in a secure location (rumours are that it is in the basement of Broadcasting House) which is a tape containing pre recorded songs together generic jingles/sweepers.

The emergency DAT is supposed to kick automatically in after X seconds of silence, just in case the presenter has technical problems on air or falls off air for whatever reason.

The DATs are recorded every so often with the latest hits and presentational material (well, the radio 1 tape is anyway, apparently) so that it remains fresh and does not sound out of place when it kicks in whilst on air.

The DAT emergency tape is backed up by an emergency CD, and these are also located at actual transmitter sites, so that if the studio failed, or even the link to the transmitter failed, after 60 seconds the CD would start. A completely automatic process, and would switch back to the studio line as soon as audio was detected again, saving the engineers a trip up to the transmitter site.

Have seen a few of these and it's always been just too expensive to get them posted from the UK as they have to go like vinyl due to them being the exact same size... finally three turn up in a lot and the seller charges me half the normal postage. Used to be a fair few listed but becoming very rare now to see these 12x12 promo flats for the early UK single releases:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/370912070722

So I found those while I was getting warmed up for my quiet super haul... THREE Japanese sealed promo CD's that have eluded me completely (sealed or unsealed) for years...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/360752235612
http://www.ebay.com/itm/360752236039
http://www.ebay.com/itm/221290322234

The first two from 2005 are maybe some of the rarest Japanese reissues IMO, the TCATS is only owned by Alban. and the other two aren't much different:
http://www.discogs.com/Foo-Fighters-...elease/2557773
http://www.discogs.com/Foo-Fighters-...elease/2557312
http://www.discogs.com/Foo-Fighters-...elease/2792069

But I paid WAYYY too much for them - I mean $28.97 total I must be crazy

But I knew my luck would run out when I asked for shipping - and the seller replied - OH, you're in New Zealand... I'll just make it $11.00.

It's times like these... you learn to love again

Ordered the Deluxe CD version, but I can't find a pre-order for the vinyl anywhere. It's probably sold out or something.

Be interesting to see what it goes for. Wrong time to sell it though, when FF are out of the public eyes and ears.

Agreed, hence the low(ish) starting price. I've got some massive visa fees to pay in about 2 weeks lol!

True,but even if it goes for £500 that's a fair bit of money made from the original price/fees & postage.I'm watching it out of curiosity, ebay say 6 people are watching this per hour so hopefully someone will find at least £500 for those expensive visa fees for Drew!

Ah just seen the auction, didn't realise it was you. Hopefully it makes the £500, I'm not so sure but it just depends, you only need one person that wants one for that money. Get two people fighting it out and you're laughing. It's probably worth that, just as with everything you need the buyer willing to pay it.

I reckon someone here should buy it. You'd sell for double within a year when the new album comes out. It's win-win!

I'm sure anyone who wants one will have it in their saved list on ebay! Hopefully there is more than just me watching it!

Yes it does.

Nothing really spectacular, but as with all other dutch promos, they have their own artwork.

I'll post it on discogs when I have some time.

Great price, I thought I had a bargain when I got my copy for £16 delivered a few years ago.
