This page attempts to cross-reference commercially released and privately traded named bootleg recordings to the corresponding recording available on the wiki. This page is a work-in-progress and woefully underrepresents the number of commercial and named bootlegs in existence at the time of this writing. Bootlegs are referred to by name specifically in order to improve searchability (in the hopes that a fan searching for a bootleg by name on a search engine will locate the recording available freely on the wiki instead), and bootleg names are linked to the Discogs information for "all variants" of a given bootleg, where available.
Please do not purchase bootlegs (except for the purposes of liberating a bootleg) as your monetary support goes only toward the bootleggers and not the band! DM Live does not condone or support the purchase or creation of commercial bootlegs.
It is evident that a number of recent bootlegs use content freely available on this wiki, complete with blatant copy & paste of descriptions and metadata, with formatting often unchanged. DM Live is not involved with any bootleg labels and any similarity to content which is freely available on this wiki is done out of laziness, greed, and lack of creativity by the bootleg label.
