Issued in 1992 by BMG Victor Inc. Japan to promote Ringo Starr’s “Time Takes Time” album and “the Complete ‘50s Masters” 5 CD box set.

This 2 track promotional CD comes in a regular jewel case. The insert features two pictures on the front cover. A picture of Ringo Starr in glasses is presented on the right side and a young Elvis from “Loving You” is presented on the left side. In addition , the title of this release is printed between the two artists. Furthermore , the following phrase is printed on the insert : “Please Play It – Don’t Be Cruel – Promotional Copy – Not For Sale”. Each release is individually numbered. The CD itself is beige and silver with the old RCA logo. This is one of the hardest to find promo cd ever !
   Note: Here is only listed one promo cd from Japan, because Japan has made sample cd's from the beginning of 1990 ! They made a sample cd of every new cd from 1990 and they are all the same as the commercial cd release ! The main differance between the sample and the commercial cd release is the word : "SAMPLE" and the 3 Japanese signs whitch are stamped at the spin of the cd ! To put up more than 100 sample cd's is just to much , even for us ! Still you have to know that these sample cd's are rare ! Okay , they made of every cd an sample but they made only 100 samples of each cd ! We put up the sample cd : Don't Be Cruel because this is the only sample cd from Japan that is individually numbered and that is very special !
