That's steep!
I think it's illegal here, too...of course it is. I guess you did well to avoid paying $50,000 for each bootleg. 150 CD;s, that would be. . . . a lot of dough
Do all the bootlegs generally come from the studio engineers? How do did they get away with it?

There was a store in downtown Freehold near where I live called Abbey Road that sold Beatles and Springsteen bootlegs and memorabilia. Beatles cds were like $60 ouch! Legend has it that the guy used to take Springsteens's bootlegs off the racks whenever he was in town. Didn't work because I heard that Bruce had the place shut down because he's seriously against the sale of unauthorized music of his.

Needed a fix, Jerry. Sounds like you have had a bad case of OBD.

In the old days, bootlegs were really works of art. The LPs had beautiful artwork, detailed descriptions of the tracks, colored vinyl, etc. The early CDs were nice productions too, with big booklets inside. Now, most of them are just cheap CDR copies. It's kind of sad, but the demand is there for quick and cheap stuff.
