How much is this cd worth?

I have a chance to buy this. I don't really know what it is. The seller says it's a numbered promo, but they might be a little confused as English is not their first language. Shaped cd, and a phone card. I can see a BMG logo on the cd. Any idea of value or what it is exactly? Thanks to promocollector, Mahalo and others in advance. Item in question is the two black squares, and the items on top.

It's a 2 track shaped CD released in '97, by BMG in France. A couple of thousand copies exist, and its on eBay quite often for about $ 30/45.
To my knowledge a promo does NOT exist of this release.

Many sellers use the word 'promo' totally wrong. Almost each (CD)single is released to promote an album, but its not a real promo unless these words appear on the sleeve or label.

Thanks Bob. I know what you mean by sellers and the word "promo", they like to think everything is a promo!

I have to agree with Bob, it's a limited edition disc and worth having if you are a collector as only 2000 copies exist but i wouldn't spend more than $25 for it. I got this disc for $21.00- MINT a year ago on ebay.

I had a similar shaped CD of Elvis and the label was a stuck on label.
After a while it kept on seperating from the disc around the edges and ended with the label being ruined. :(

I also have heard shaped discs can damage CD players. A matter of balance.
