"Sing the song or keep it inside..."

This is my collection of bootlegs. In case yer wondering, I get them at music expos and lately, one of my local record stores has started carrying them. If you want me to look for a boot for you or if you want a tape of one of these, feel free to email me.

Artist: Tori Amos
CD Title: Unplugged Girl
Tracks: Cornflake Girl, Blood Roses, Silent All These Years, Icicle, Caught A Lite Sneeze, Over the Rainbow, Hey Jupiter, In The Springtime of His Voodoo, Crucify.
Running Time: 72 mins

Company: Pure Soundcard Blizzard Recordings.
Made In: Czech Republic
Details: Regular cd recording quality (which is pretty common with Unplugged cds) The audience is kinda loud and annoying after each song but oh well. Also, at places during the unplugged where they went to a commercial, the audience fades out faster. Tracking is cut pretty well too.

Running Time: 72 mins
Notes: I'm pretty sure that 1-8 and 15 are originally from Garage Days while all the demos are available on singles to "Metallica".
Made In: .....
Details: I have no idea when or where this was made or by which company.
Price paid: 24 dollars plus tax

Company: Haven't a clue. It doesn't say on the case and/or cd. Serial # CD9606.
Made In: .....
Details: Okay, other than the fact that it does not say ANYWHERE who made it or where, the back covering was printed upside down. It does tell the details (more than I typed), dates, people and timing of each track on the back. The quality is pretty good. Many of the tracks are unavailible anywhere else, some are b-sides to singles. As far as I know, this was made about 1995 cause it lists 2x4 as a new Metallica track.
Price paid: 25 even.

Artist: Smashing Pumpkins
CD Title: The Cutting Edge
Tracks: Spaceboy, Dancing In the Moonlight, Rocket, Cherub Rock, Today, Disarm, I Am One/Disarm, Geek USA, Drown, I Am One, Cherub Rock, Silver Muck, I Am One.
Running Time: 66 mins
Notes: Tracks 1-6 are Unplugged and recorded at "the VPRO Studios" in Hilversum, Holland in July 1993. 7-12 were recorded live at the Lowlands Paradise Festival in 1993. Track 13 was recorded from Mtv Live on December 26, 1993.
Company: Octopus/ Unwired Acoustika Live.
Made In: Germany
Details: The Unplugged parts are from the same session that Landslide came from (which they probably didn't put on cause they would have gotten sued since it became an official release) and Dancing In The Moonlight (which was a b-side to Disarm). The quality is SUPER. It's unplugged and even better, it was done in a studio so there isn't any audience noise and such. Track 7 is listed as "I Am One/Disarm" but I think it's really a 1 minute version of Siva and Disarm. It's weird. The rest of the tracking is right (I called SilverMuck that just for the purpose of censorship). Btw, the version of Drown is really cool. The quality of the live material is pretty good. There isn't too much audience noise, althought the sound is sometimes kinda flat. Typical Pumpkins show.
Price paid: 24.99 plus tax.

Also, No Memory is on the track with Sin and on the Naked Sunday track, the songs are Sex Type Thing/Wet My Bed/Naked Sunday. During Wet My Bed, some guy starts throwing shoes at them and Scott responds by telling the guy to come onstage so he can....uh...you have to hear it.

Made In: ------
Details: The sound sucks. It's really quiet and tinny most of the time. Tracks 12-16 are weird. They dont sound like STP and I don't recognize the songs. Does anyone know anything about this?

Then it lists the tracking as Cracker, Wick Garden, No Mercy, Sinner, Push, Where The River, Greek Creek, Dead and Alive, Sex Type, Wet Bed, Naked Eyes, My Nightmare, You Don't Know My Name, Dieey Gig, Another Parts, Hate Your Body.
