Hello. Here's a note on forum policy regarding bootlegs.

If there are websites that are good resources for bootlegs, I don't really mind people linking to them. It's fine to link to Blogger sites (or others) which discuss rare and unreleased recordings, and which themselves provide download links.

That also includes things like Soundcloud or YouTube uploads that might not be entirely legit. Let's be grown up and not pretend these things are out there.

I think it's OK for someone to say "Here's a link to an interesting alternative mix I've found!", but quite different for someone to share masses of stuff they've uploaded and to turn the forum into a trading post (which might get me suspended or shut down).

If someone is asking for bootlegs to be uploaded to filesharing services (Mega, Rapidshare etc) so forum members can access them, I'd have to draw the line. This is not the place for trading illegal stuff, whether requesting or providing. I don't want to see direct download links to Mega, Rapidshare, Demonoid, Pirate Bay and so on. Let other sites link to those.

(I'm guilty of the latter, of course, because I shared the Rock Band stem files before they were taken down. Never mind.)

Obviously nothing commercially-available should be shared. Respect copyright holders.

I found this site yesterday, and it has a phenomenal collection of bootleg recordings.  The daily updates are staggering and include plenty of Paul's latest "Out There" shows.

The download link is at the bottom of each post in the comment section.

Just to follow this up:

If you do a search you can locate all of the Purple Chick deluxe titles, as well as a treasure trove of other sets.

To download, you get redirected to one of those "megaupload"-type places.  You can download for free, but you're limited to one download a day and it's fairly slow.  An average album takes me about 20 minutes.

I've paid the subscription before which allows you to download multiple files a LOT faster, and I've never had an issue with the billing or anything.

 

BUT...  If you want to try for free, go to the link and the download button is on the bottom.  Make sure you uncheck the option to use their downloader.  You'll then get a 45-second countdown before you can click the link to start the download.

Once it's done, you'll need to unpack the .rar files.  If you don't already have an unpacking program, just go find 'Winrar'.  It's free.  Just install it.  It's safe.

Now that you're ready to unpack, just open the .rar file and drag the folder inside to your desktop.  It'll unpack in a few seconds.  

Please note - Some of the files are FLAC files and some are MP3.  If you don't know, FLAC is a lossless file.  It's basically the complete uncompressed digital information.  Most general-purpose burning programs can handle it, but your iPod won't.  MP3 files are (as everyone knows) compressed and of a lesser sound quality.  But your iPod will accept them lovingly.

 

Have I missed anything...?

You can get A/B Road at Everything Beatles in the February and March sections, that's where I got the Twickenham rehearsals (already had the Apple sessions), its a fantastic resource for Beatles Bootlegs and added to regularly is Everything Beatles.

One hell of a set and one I doubt I will ever get thru so why the hell is it on my computer taking up goodness knows how many gig? Thank God Apple will never put out an 80-odd box of this for £5 billion pounds. I also have no idea why I have 8,000 live versions of From Me To You except its the damn Beatles.

If anyone knows where I can get studio boots of Dylan from i'd be eternally delighted to be informed (can only find live 80's).

 

Artifacts is a great 3 box 15 disc collection but a lot of the recordings have been upgraded since it was put out in '94 and '95(?) - unless it was upgraded itself which is what's happened to a number of boots over the last few years.

You can start here: http://musictravellerstwo.blogspot.ca/

The download link for any album is in the comment section.  I'll leave it to you to figure everything else out, but if an idiot like me can do it then so can you.

The Purple Chick albums are currently being upped over here for those, if any, who are looking for them.
