Best sites for Bootlegs & your favorites

Postby wanderingyankee » Mon Feb 15, 2010 10:00 am

As some of you know, there's loads of great unreleased bootleg stuff floating around out there in web-land. While sound qualitiy is not always consistent, there is a surprising amount of high quality soundboard stuff or in-studio recording made live for FM broadcast.

I find most of the best stuff via Rapidshare. I can also recommend Wolfgangs Vault. They've got great stuff from the Allman Brothers, SRV, Clapton, Santana.

That said...I know there's more out there that I'm probably not aware of....thus the reason for this thread:

1. Where do you find the best bootlegs?

2. What are some of your favorite boots?

I'll above...
1) Wolfgangs Vault and
2) Fleetwood Mac - April 2, 1970. Roundhouse - London

This is an amazing show with Peter Green and the band at the height of their powers. 2 months later Peter Green will quit the band so this is Green's final London show with the band. Peter's guitar tone and vocals are incredible. Highlights are "Black Magic Woman", "Before The Beginning", "Rattle Snake Shake" & "Merry Go Round". Incredible.

You can find this show at Wolfgang's Vault.

I've got 20+ other boots to recommend but now....over to you. :)
