Best of the Bootlegs on the LeBrain Train

The LeBrain Train:  2000 Words or More with Mike Ladano

Episode 52 – Best of the Bootlegs


This live broadcast of the LeBrain Train is brought to you by John “2Loud2OldMusic” and Harrison the “MadMetalMan“!  They have driven the demand for a show about our favourite bootleg recordings.  Bonus:  you can also expect to hear from Kevin “BuriedOnMars” about his favourites too!

What are bootlegs?  The simplest definition is this:  a recording, usually live, released without authorization, or knowledge of the artists.  Also without compensation to the artist!  Most bootlegs are audience recordings (covertly sneaking a tape recorder into a gig), some are soundboards.  We will we be talking about LPs, CDs, cassettes, VHS tapes and even Youtube videos.

Take a glimpse into our personal music collections with this rough and raw episode of the LeBrain Train!

“How to Make a Bootleg” 101



  1. The only bootleg that I believe is on the 1001 list is Dylan’s “Live 1966” (the concert where hecklers called him Judas for playing an ‘electric’ set) – definitely a significant recording!
