BEST BOOTLEGS 2016


From numerous bootlegs downloaded and listened to throughout 2016, a quarter were discarded. The remainder were considered worth keeping, either on disc or the best on hard drives for safe keeping and possible future uploads.

The titles covered in this PDF booklet are in my opinion:

The 50 best bootlegs available for download from the web in 2016.
 (of those not already in my collection)


 

Emailed direct to all members, non-members can request details via the email address on the top right-hand side column.

The PDF document comprises:

    38 pages A4
    Word count 19,960
    50 bootleg images


Full details have been included for each bootleg such as:
  •     Venue
  •     Date of performance
  •     Type of recording - soundboard, FM, from the audience, etc.
  •     Taper’s name if available
  •     Lineage
  •     Running time
  •     Website address
These details should enable you to quickly locate any particular title of interest. I have not provided a sound quality rating as all are of sufficient high quality to rate around 5 out of 5, some are worthy of 5+ like the best official releases. Further details include:
  •     Complete track listing
  •     Track timings
  •     Informative comment on each bootleg.
  •     Index

  2. Thanks so much for all you have done these last few years your blog is tuly inspiring.........you have brought back lots of amaxing memories such as Jeff Buckley at Glastonbury and also I have been blown away by some of the bootlegs such as the Stones at Leeds University particularly Mick Taylors guitar playing on Midnight Rambler........also the Little Feat studio bootleg was amazing as well as all the Bowie and Dylan...........my favorite though has to be the theme time radio with Bob Dylan........I had just finished reading the mans amazing Chronicles autobiography.......he is a walkign living breathing vault of musical and cultural history.

    More than all that though I have the greatest redspect for you for you article and the sustained and vicious assaut on disables people you have run from time to time.........how this has been kept out the mainsteam media is beyond belief and more people should be aware that the mortality rate for this vunerable section of society hase been worse under these last few years than american soldiers in vietnam.......unbelievable and fair play to you for all you have done and highlighted

    Have a great Christmas and New Year and thanks agaain

    Cheers
