    There are at least two soloists that have bought Bona Drag 2010 promos- both were in simple white sleeves with black text.

    So, what do we think of this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Morrissey-Bon...?pt=UK_CDsDVDs_CDs_CDs_GL&hash=item3a5efd143b apparently just the cover artwork with no text (but that's not what the pic says).

    It states the catalogue number as CDSMLPDJ 70

    The image was available on this site a few weeks ago... the tracks have begun to leak... could this be a home made CD? Or a real promo?

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the tip Dave! :thumb:
    I asked for extra photos and it looks genuine to me.
    So I bought it... :)

    Dave, I really hope the price will fall and that some promos will eventually be available. I hope it wont happen like with YOR where the last promo sold for 75 quid a couple of months ago...

    I don't know about that. Look at YOR, Greatest Hits, Maladjusted expanded promo, and southpaw expanded promo. I have been offered 105 GBP for my greatest hits promo. The one that is number 33 on RC's top 50 list..

    Dave,

    I am in contact with Stephane and have provided him with a scan of the bona drag white sleeve/black text promo so far.
    As soon as I receive my EILS and Bona Drag promos with full colour artwork, I will also forward scans for inclusion in PJLM.
    They are all authentic and they will all be listed in PJLM in due course.

    Cheers,

    I.R.

    This is the sixth one he's listed so far http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Morrissey-Bon...?pt=UK_CDsDVDs_CDs_CDs_GL&hash=item3a5f19c95a

    Do you think he works for the promo company but did a Billy Liar and didn't post them out like he was told to, but simply kept the money for stamps and now he's left with a pile of promotional merchandise that he doesn't know what to do with? :lbf:

    Not bad work - he's sold five already this week at £50 each - it's beats working for a living.

    he knows people here will pay for it.

    i'm hoping it turns out to be like the Revelations LP, where they started at $54.99 only to be found, nowadays, for as low as $15.99

    You are absolutely right. Unlike You are the Quarry and Ringleader ( still tons of promos around for a fiver or even less each) very few have surfaced of Moz latest albums/reissues. I remember offering £ 20 for YOR promo a while ago on ebay , the seller thanked me for my generous offer but decided to keep the bidding going as one person did already bid, well it fetched nearly £ 80...I feel that the price of Everyday..promo cd will drop but Bona Drag cd promo will stay fairly high in time to come..
    Cheers Moz

    Doesn't it worry anyone here that all copies of that promo so far come from the same Ebay seller?

    Another promo, this time from a different seller with white sleeve and black text, got sold this morning for an unknown amount (as far as I understand...)

    Yes, me. That's why I've been persisting with the posts :)

    I'd be interested to see what's on the reverse of the sleeve of these promos, and to compare the CD with the final release.

    Yes you are right. I would like to see the actual promo cd and see if the usual promo words are there like "promo only, not for sale" or "for promotional use only ". That, together with the sleeve, will be the final test for this promo item.;)
    Cheers Moz

    I just arrived home and this was waiting for me.
    100% authentic.
    Can we stop the fake/non-fake debate now? ;)
