    Betacam SP L (EMI International / TeleCine, 24/06/2001): 
    Letterbox: PAL
This promo Betacam by EMI International was made in June 2001, and features the music video of ‘Perfect Lovesong’ which was released in… October! Actually the single was originally planned as a summer release, but was delayed for the final tour of the band’s line-up.
We ignore how many copies were duplicated. The duplication was done by TeleCine with whom EMI was working with back then, and included is a technical sheet featuring the time codes, etc.

The release is entitled 6 x Tracks on the cover but 8 Track Comp on the accompanying sheet, the reason may be that the Gorillaz TV spots are technically 3 videos, but may count as one for the record company. The sheet also show the duplication date, one day before the date written on the cover.
