    I have 5 original rough trade smiths albums on cassette .
    1 Queen is dead (rough 96) green paper label Beige case.
    2 The world won't listen ( rough c101 )
    3 Strangeways here we come ( rough 106)
    4 Hatful of hollow ( blue label rough 76)
    5 The Smiths debut album (rough c-61)

    These are all rough trade originals that I've had for over 30 years, they have been played many times , the cases have a few scratches and cracks, they all show signs of wear and tear , so by no means immaculate, they have been in storage for a few years, so i'm wondering what they may sell for.
    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated..:wink:

    I've been a collector of Morrissey / Smith's vibyl and cds for about twenty years now, and kind of specialise in collecting the cassettes.

    As far at the tapes you listed go, they only go for a few pound on eBay or discogs. They sold in massive numbers when they were released and it's not exactly the choice of music format now, so many people sold them.
    Its the rarer ones from the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, etc that go for higher prices, especially as they usually have different artwork. I hope that helps.
