Best recent bootleg?



Just a reminder folks:



" NO SOLICITING FOR BOOTLEGS! Discussion is fine ; requests/offers to copy and links to bootleg sites are not. Posting Prince and associated artist videos from sites such as YouTube is also not allowed. Posts of this nature will be deleted and repeat offenders will be first warned, and then banned. Troll threads, fake tracklists, and attention seeking rumor threads will be also be swiftly dealt with.These rules are strictly enforced!"

**********************************************



What do you think is the best bootleg of the past year or so?

My vote goes to the Birmingham 15th by Confusion Records. Amazing quality, awesome setlist (w/ Electric Intercourse) and from Empty Room onwards, Princes vocals are some of the best I've heard live for a long time.

Any other suggestions? What's your favourite?

June 1, 2014 - Paris, Le Zenith (show 2)

Although it's a audience recording, it really sounds like a soundboard.

Yeah that's a good one, I actually got into a conversation with the guy who made the recording on that... er... other forum I won't mention, and told him that it actually sounded better than the gig itself (I was there too.) It's really quite weird, as it's a great recording and yet the sound was a bit of a mess, at least at the beginning, so major props to that guy for recording what turned out to be a pretty historic concert (with Electric Intercourse) so well. I think a lot of the recent concerts are turning up now, so it's cool to have a complete set of a tour.


Incidentally, does anybody know if any new or interesting studio stuff has turned up recently? As far as I'm aware it seems to have gone quiet after the Parade Demos and the several new tracks that turned up in 2012 (Lust U Always, An American In Paris, etc), there could be some stuff since then that I've missed though.

Any word yet on a possible boot existing of the March 19th 2014 shows at the Fillmore? Just want to know if it even exists, that is all.
