Finding a piece of history

I was looking at the shelves next to my stereo tonight. Unexpectedly, I found a Mini Disc with some music on it. Of course, I don’t have a mini disc player so I can’t listen it.

Here is a picture. The disc was a promo sent out by Rolling Stone magazine. The copyright on the disc says 1994 so that’s been hiding on the shelf for 21 years without me realizing it! Online resources say that it was released on June 30, 1994. [For example Soul Asylum]

The outside looks like a 1/2 size floppy disc. The disc inside looks like a CD–silver and reflective.

I see people selling it on ebay in the $5 – $10 range.
