DJ Promo Maxi records were never intended for sale; they were merely promotional tools, sent out to DJs to advertise new albums from the Phonogram group of labels. Some were Various Artists EPs, others were singles. Several tracks, such as Harvey Mandel's 'Uno Ino' (DJ-003 B) appeared as proper singles on one or other of the main labels - the case of that track, on Janus (6146-024). Numbering was in the DJ-000s, and it reached at least DJ-016.  For some reason records by Vertigo artists in the series appeared on the Vertigo label. DJ-005, a single split between Status Quo and Black Sabbath, is apparently very collectable and has been known to go for a three-figure sum. Early DJ Promo Maxi records seem to have had stickered white labels; mid-period ones had paper labels with a picture of a naked lady on them, while later ones were injection-moulded.  Some came in a 'company sleeve'.  As usual, the discography has some gaps in it.
