"California Son" Test Pressings for sale at Mporium

https://uk.mporium.org/products/california-son-album-pre-sale-test-pressing

I’ll use the term “Test Pressing” loosely. 100 copies at £100 each. I think I’ll give this one a miss.

I know it's been said already but this is a sleeve I can get behind.

As it ever was, it's all about the money. CHING CHING CHING.
I marked this comment redundant as I believe Morrissey has been writing songs and performing them this whole time to get paid. Unless someone can convince me he has a rich Uncle.

His next album actually will be called ...

‘Rich Uncle’

In tribute to all his fans that had to sacrifice their hard earned money to buy his records over the years., as if he held a gun up to our heads to buy them.

:rolleyes:

Because he aims to please, he’ll have a bunch of those printed up just for a handful of members here at solo, at a price of course.

100 test pressings? That's a lot of testing. Did they do 99 and think you know what let's do one more. Bam! See now that's the one. The 100th is sweet. Thank god we did the other 99. Phew!

Are these white label promos? I don't see any type on the label which denotes a test pressing. Either way, highly collectable.

Highly collectible? I doubt it. They’re instantly forgettable. It’s a mass produced white label of a covers album, most people arnt even arsed about the regular LP version, let alone this rip off. The LIHS signed white labels were the same, half of those are in the hands of sharks who still can’t flip them cos no ones prepared to even pay close to the £200-250 original price.

I can post links to half a dozen that have sold for £250/300, or links to the ones still sat on eBay that arnt getting shifted.
How many of those were even signed? 200? Posting links to the 6 highest sold is hardly proof of anything. Naturally people are gonna get the itch and buy at any cost, but on the whole, most people are now refusing to buy into this shit.
If you think those are worth £600 just cos a handful of dummies have nothing better to spend their money on, then you’re crazy too.
A few California Son LPs will pop up on eBay for £200-300 and no doubt get sold, but you’re aiming at 1% of the collecting community with prices like those, the other 99% are finally saying “f*** this!”.
Once the fever dies down, they’ll find their price, and it won’t be too far off the £100 they were originally bought for. There’s very little room for an increase in value when the price is set so high from the off.

I’d pay such an absurd price if Morrissey would be so kind as to pose for a photo with his erect dicklette lifting the pressing. We all know he’s truly a whore. Only then would such grey matter be worth it.:rock::thumb::horny::censored::smilingimp:
