HONK

Welcome to the bootleg database on The Rolling Stones


  This site is dedicated to the Greatest Rock'n'roll band on earth, The Rolling Stones.

  The site is made to provide an easy way of searching information about bootleg recordings of The Rolling Stones.

 Bootleg recordings have been around for decades. According to Miles (see source references), for the Rolling Stones it started just before Christmas of 1969 with the famous "LIVER THAN YOU'LL EVER BE" acetate, released on Lurch Records.
Lurch Records label would later become the well known bootleg label "Trade Mark of Quality" (TMoQ).
"Rolling Stone" magazine wrote a review of this bootleg release on February 7, 1970 (by Greil Marcus): review...

 With the rapidly development in digital audio and video technology, most people attending a venue today is also able to record the event. There are a very few numbers of venues after the 1969 tour that are not circulating among fans right now, making the number of circulating audience tapes and recordings endless as long the band continues performing.

 During the 1990s an increased production of bootleg CDs rolled out, including re-issues of shows that had been recorded decades previously. In particular, companies in Germany and Italy exploited the more relaxed copyright laws in those countries by pressing large numbers of CDs. See bootleg labels such as World Productions Of Compact Music , The Swingin' Pig and Chameleon Records from Europe, followed by Japanese Labels like Vinyl Gang , IMP and Hot Lips Records.

  The new European copyright law from 2011 protects recordings made in 1963 or later for 70 years, but only if the recordings were legal published within 50 years after they were made. Recordings made before 1963 are out of copyright in the EU. If they remain unreleased, recordings from 1966 will fall out of copyright in the EU at the end of 2016. It would be legal for anybody to release those recordings in Europe. Coda Publishing from EU is releasing many items under protection of the EU copyright laws.

 This site list only bootlegs albums and cds that have been examined and are circulating among collectors.
The list is undoubtedly incomplete as far for listing every available bootleg for every venue, emphasis is more on trying to listing available sources for each venue.

 Beside is a picture of the band in a fish and chip shop on the King's Road, Chelsea, used as the insert papper artwork of the original Bedspring Symphony bootleg.
