    Also, what would a Viva Hate gold disc be worth to a collector?

    What a great find there, the solo stuff doesn't command the same prices as Smiths stuff but you can expect £100-£150 for the promo boxes, the 7" singles test pressings are worth about £300 each and the CBS mastering disc..well I think there could be a scrap over that one, maybe getting near £800 for that.It only takes two buyers with deep pockets and your in business.

    Thanks for the update on the grooves.

    Dreams.... are just...dreams - class.

    This is funny too because Morrissey worked so hard in the 70s and 80s to be a pop star,

    When EMI came knocking, he did a bloody good job with Vini Reilly and Street.

    Vini really needs looking after now. He is also a Manchester legend.

    Money is one thing but these do need a good home.

    Not yet. I asked him where they came from and he said he wasn't going to say. It would help to know the story behind them.

    The handwriting on these is by Tris Penna who worked at EMI during this time. You will find his name in the liner notes of some Moz recordings.

    To me, extras like this make these items highly desirable as artifacts beyond mere collectibles. This is like a time capsule being unearthed.

    Thanks for sharing.

    The promos aren't worth much. What you were offered for the 7" and acetate I thought were more than fair.

    What you're referring to as a "mastering disc" is called an acetate. I have an Everyday Is Like Sunday from Abbey Road. These were made so the parties involved could have something to play; these pre date digital. The blanks cost about 50 quid each and are made individually on a lathe.

    Pretty cool stuff when you appreciate everything that goes into it. I've always wanted to learn to use a recording lathe. :)

    Don't play the acetate!!
