The best CD-bootlegs

Post by Red Angel »

I haven't actually bought a bootleg (vinyl or CD) in a long time since I discovered the "torrents", but there are some CD-bootlegs that are also attractive from a collector's point of view. Personally there are two that I would happily buy (at a reasonable price) if I found them in a record store (not online):

I have both of those. They are/were great before I did the remasters which I play now. But if you can get them at a decent price then they are cool.

I am particularly attracted to booklets, which make them collectible items.

They are both produced very nicely.

The other Clash-related titles both those labels produced are also really well done. Extensive fold-out booklets etc (although just re-tooling previously available text and pics from magazine articles etc)

You are right these two labels are very careful in packaging their products, a right choice. As far as other CD-bootlegs are concerned, it is almost useless to underline the importance of D.O.A.

Yes D.O.A. was a great round up of a lot of rarities back in the day. But of course the problem with bootlegs is always the same nice eye catching packaging but very little effort (if any) given to remastering, speed correction, equalization etc.

I’d still recommend DOA for any new Clash fan who wants to explore the band’s rarities.
Some of it could be upgraded and/or speed corrected these days, but it’s a great compilation and features tracks from some really hard to find bootlegs (as pictured in the artwork)
The fact it was compiled by fans and traded freely made it even more welcome
