Background: Released in 1968, Promotional LP For Record Department-In-Store-Play was one of a number of albums by that title issued by Atlantic/Atco records to promote sales of then-new albums on those labels.
Rather than send them to radio stations, the record companies sent them directly to record stores in hopes that the stores would play them for their customers.
Each album featured two artists, with one side devoted to each. Each song featured an announcer giving the title of the song and the name of the album.
This particular copy of Promotional LP For Record Department-In-Store-Play features songs from New York Rock & Roll Ensemble by the New York Rock & Roll Ensemble on side one, and tracks from Wheels of Fire by Cream on side two.
