Promotional Material
Note the distinct differences between the promo7 and the sleeves documented above. The biggest difference is that on the advertisement showing the BIG BOSS MAN side, the strip reads COMING SOON - "CLAMBAKE," AT YOUR FAVORITE THEATER A UNITED ARTISTS RELEASE. Whereas the actual side would read either COMING SOON - "CLAMBAKE" SOUNDTRACK ALBUM AT YOUR FAVORITE DEALER or ASK FOR - "CLAMBAKE" SOUNDTRACK ALBUM AT YOUR FAVORITE DEALER. The advertisement actually shows the strip that is on the flip side of the cover.
