bootleg "Early Years"


Active Member
I'm trying to find info about this bootleg on different traders websites but I can't find anything. On covers it says:

-Soundhouse tapes (1-3)
-Live at the Marque, June 1980 (4-10)
-Live at the "Reading Rock Festival", August 1980 (11-15)

I've found similar info on Vegueta's website for soundhouse tapes. He mentions same format but live recordings are from Japan.
I think this is what you're looking for, BoBo:

Yes, that is the info that i need. Thanks.

It is weird that big traders don't have it in their lists.

edit (after listening boot):

Vegueta: "I think this is from the first tour, because at the end of transylvania, Paul introduces the band and he mentions Dennis Stratton and as you know the first time in Japan was with Adrian and on the Killers tour."

That is what Paul says on this bootleg too. Someone is wrong here. Maybe I don't have real "Early Years" bootleg, just covers.
