    Moz can’t release it for profit if already shared around the internet...

    I don't think bootlegs and properly released live recordings by the artist are mutually exclusive. If Morrissey released any of the recordings of recent gigs in glowing quality - it would sell. Doc's recording is great, but judging by what I'm regularly asked for: soundboard or broadcast quality is always what's desired most.
    A good example recently would be The Queen Is Dead box set - which had a live gig that had already existed for 30 years of being shared on tape/online (in poor quality) as too: demos that had largely been shared online, yet sales were extremely good for the set in all its forms.
    This type of behavior in analogue and now digital form has existed since the 50's - I can't see it changing anytime soon.
    That's just my view.

    Totally agree with everything you have said in all your posts above FWD. If I have bothered to acquire and listen to a bootleg live recording I will always buy an officially released version if one appears. And I would expect the vast majority of artists to have bought and shared bootleg live recordings in their younger days so any of those who start getting upset about live recordings of their own shows smacks of pure hypocrisy. The fact that Morrissey shared his Dolls live tapes with me back in the day has not stopped numerous live recordings being released since and I for one am damn glad they have and I have bought them all. I have never heard Moz make any stand against bootlegs so there is no suggestion of any issue on his part, more just a debate around the issue in general. The real issue is around counterfeit copies of official stuff which are sold for no benefit to the artist which is definitely something to be stamped out.
