Q: How rare is FACD 293R?
A: [Frank Brinkhuis] "To my knowledge the FACD 293R radio CD never really happened, i.e. it wasn't sent out to radio stations, as intended. [...] The radio-only CD was part though of the FAC 293 promokit, issued when England went through to the 2nd round of the 1990 World Cup: a monogrammed blue promo bag, including the 'World In Motion' remix 12", radio-only remix CD, window sticker, T-shirt, shorts and cap! I've seen these sets being offered as competition prizes by (music) magazines and papers at the time, but have no idea how many were made."
