Download Live Music: B.O.O.T.L.E.G.S.

Fully aware of the fact that this is the kind of site that most bands or serious live music fans would frown upon, I figured I’d drop a link to a new site that I found that offers up live “bootlegs” (I’ve always hated that noun) of many bands that don’t readily allow taping at their shows.

Looking for an early REM recording from Seattle, 1984? How about The Who at Wantagh last year? Maybe The Police in the early 80’s? This is the place to find it, until it gets shut down or something…

    as many sites as there are floating around, i have found it particularly interesting that most still respect the wishes of the musicians/artists and will remove/ban torrents if the musician specifically requests it, or if they have a specific no taping policy. while many bands may not specifically allow/endorse taping, i think generally they ignore it as long as it is being traded freely, and not for profit. at least thats the impression i get, based on the large availability of music around the web. there are some sites that completely break all the rules, but these are few and far between, in my opinion.
