For me, it's because I have the complete boot set and I like to listen without edits or any other bits that have been "cleaned up."

Hi DrBeatle - is this the set you are referring to? I've been drooling over it for some time now.

From memory I think DrBeatle has the Great Dane set which can be seen here:

http://www.bootlegzone.com/alb.....;section=1

Which I found as an mp3 disc containing 11 Great Dane BBC releases and all the artwork and the book! A fantastic collection - though there have been improvements made to the sound quality and additional shows found since it appeared.

I have Hobnail's Unsurpassed Broadcasts as well as Purple Chick's which I burned on cd years ago. Live At The BBC is a fun highlights release which is what vol 2 should be.

And to quote from one of the reviewers from the above Amazon link:

[The Beatles Complete BBC Sessions 10] are nothing more than inferior copies of The Complete BBC Sessions, a bootleg released by Purple Chick and relatively easy to find for FREE online (here's a hint - try searching for the blog "Pee-Pee Soaked Heckhole"). Anyone who forks over $150 for  something that costs nothing gets exactly what they deserve. This is nothing but company greed and buyer stupidity on display here.
Be smart, and save your money.

 

If its not an official release do not buy it. You are as well burning your money and then downloading the collection from the net. In fact tell me, i'll give you a copy and then keep the non-burned money for myself.a-hard-days-night-john-5

^well said. I certainly pay for the Purple Chick set, or *any* other Purple Chick (or other boot) releases. I haven't bought silver CD bootlegs (Beatles or otherwise) in probably 10 years. No need to anymore unless one is a serious collector with bottomless pockets :P

 

Many fans who are compiling bootlegs nowadays are even doing artwork and putting it in the download files so its just build it yourself.

I first bought bootleg cd's just after the final anthology releases in '96 (first 5 were the stereo PPM, WTB, AHDN, BFS and the original Get Back album all in digipacks) when they were silver cd's (the delight in finding them was immense joy and excitement) but then the place where I got them from got flooded with shit CDR's that were rotting upon first play and lacking even the most basic track info aside from the song titles (and they were often wrong), along with shitty artwork that a 2 year old could have bettered when having a tantrum, so I stopped buying them.

My first ever bootlegs were The Sweetest Apples and More Sweet Apples on cassette, bought in a shop in Stirling, which were brilliant. Played them over and over and over with such delight at hearing these wonderful variations of songs I had knew off by heart.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Thanks for the responses everyone.

I saw that same Amazon review, mmm and here is my deal. If you were to look up "old school" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of me. Just the fact that I still own a real live paper dictionary should be the first hint.

I love to touch, smell, read the disc/book/what have you. Yes, all the music goes into my iPod. But every once in a while I love to open up the disc and play it, read it, smell it...you get the idea. I break out in hives when I hear a song from my iPod that I purchased from iTunes directly, knowing that's all I have - nothing to touch, smell, read.

Therefore I would love to have all of the songs, but also the discs with the cover art and liner notes. Looks like I will have to settle for the official Apple versions as they slowly get released one set at a time, edits and all. But, that is my problem/choice.

*deep sigh*

Thanks again, everyone. 

 

Many fans who are compiling bootlegs nowadays are compiling artwork and liner notes for them and putting it all in the download files so its just build it yourself; burn the disc, print out the artwork, put it all together and its pretty much the same as what you would get from a good bootlegger anyway. All you are missing is a silver disc but then you're saving a fortune and the possibility of being ripped off.

 

As said elsewhere I want the hard books, I will not read books on a kindle, ipod or whatever device. With music its just the ease of having the ability to have it all stored on a laptop and an ipod and be able to have it at the touch of a button. I like reading all the notes and seeing the artwork and all that and that is certainly missing from downloads and I do believe cd quality is better than downloads. LPs are even better but i've never replaced the broken needle.

 

[Apologies for the double post but I responded to Dr Beatles and hit submit and then saw Zig's which I wanted to respond to as well and I would normally delete the original post and then adapt but I don't know if that's possible at the moment.]

From Gigwise: On Monday, the Oxford St. HMV will give away 300 copies of a 7" promo for Live At The BBC Vol 2 when the store reopens at 8am.

Good luck if you're lining up!
