    I guess I've never looked at the DW info on my small promo album collection. Well the other day I snagged a dollar promo of Paul Simon ~Graceland~ and considered selling it with my sell pile. Listening to it, with phones on, and not in what I thought was a solid VG (which is below my keep status); I'm discovering this is a clean, very accurate sounding album. So my question is; if an album is a promo is it normally a first press (since a promo is usually to get the album out there)?

    I'm unsure about the specifics of promo copies but just recently I snagged a Human League 'Dare' promo while on my 80s binge and my experience was the same as yours, 1st rate with excellent sonics.
    While they always appear to sell for a higher price, I plan on keeping my eye peeled for more of these in the future.

    I own several promo copies and they all sound good.

    Maybe they are a limited run or something.
