I'm still on my first couple of posts so be gentle.
I was wondering what was Neil's opinion on live bootleg trading. I know this site is linked to the club, is the discussion of such items frowned upon.
I presume audience taping goes on but there doesnt seem to any evidence on this site. I am involved in the the Springsteen community, where every show from his current tour & hundreds of old ones are traded or just passed on for blank CD's. No money changes hands.
I've seen some Crowdies "Boots" for sale on ebay & in record fairs, etc but they always seem to be pretty scarce & the fan club CD's go for silly money. This seems unusual for such a prolific live band. Did the band or record company ever clamp down on bootleggers or traders.
Studio outtakes are a different matter but has he ever made any comments about live trading & audience recordings, he seemed pretty vague when asked about his studio material bieng traded on Napster last year
