No, but that's a self-serving no. I was interested in those things as a teenager/pre-internet when I used to trade tapes with penpals, but nowadays I'm really only concerned with the things the artists I follow have chosen to release. That's enough for me. Every now and then I'll download something unreleased in a moment of excitement, but then it winds up just sitting on my desktop.
I don't either. Kind of a FAN of the polished stuff. Plus I don't want to put all my eggs into one basket. I like to listen to other music, read, watch films, create. If I chased every bootleg I'd have no time for anything else.No, because I never do.
No that's ridiculous but, this cover shot is a perfect example of why you'd be wrong not to drop by. great album and not the only one. I spent a lot of time chasing down every live recording I could find until the penny drop that selectivity is the key to boots.
It just depends on what you like. For me the energy and passion in a live performance is the best. For all the band's I like, I tend to listen to concert recordings much more than albums (hense my site I guess). I just love live music. However, I don't really listen to the studio bootleg stuff, even though I've probably downloaded them all. But that's just me.I agree.
However, I think some of the real gems are on bootlegs etc.
