Icon47 Bootlegs

Hi all
This may seem a bit ungrateful,given the wealth of official Glenn material being released at the moment but I was wondering where people were downloading bootlegs from currently?
I know some kind souls will probably offer to help provide particular titles but is there anywhere I can download them myself?
I've seen many Glenn & HTP titles available & of course they're going to be of varying quality - Funky Business probably at the top end & some of Made in Sweden at the bottom.
I would really like to have a copy of Glenn doing "Superstition" & see there is a boot with the same title recorded in Stuttgart.
Any suggestions gratefully received (I've looked at WinMX recently & there only seems to be official trax available,which I willingly buy from official sources - its the boots I'm interested in downloading free,so as not to rip-off the artists)
Thanks for your help.
Ben

Can I throw a two cents in here? WinMX, Morpheus and Kazaa are very popular, but I have now wiped them off my PC because they contain "spyware."

When I last looked on my hidden files on my hard drive, I had unknowingly amassed 1100 files, most with references to porn. I am being open about this, because I don't want the same fate to happen to anyone else on here. Without getting too techie about it, spyware (which comes with kazaa and the like) installs files and programs in your PC to make it simpler for pop ups and unwanted ads to appear. Soooo someone else then logs into your PC (e.g wife, bf, gf,daughter) and wonders why the hell you have this crap on your PC. It's a horrible situation to be in. Take it from me.

Thankfully in my case, the person realised that I simply don't have the time to amass this many files and that all the files had similar indices. Someone with less technical knowledge may not have been so understanding.

Bootlegs will never go away and they are great if you cannot get hold of a deleted recording. All I am saying is be careful guys, it's a bit of a mine field. Best course of action apparently is to invest in Norton Anti Virus but coupled with a spyware remover. I am not familiar with easytree so I can't comment. I hope this helps.

Hi all
Thanks Fast Joey & Keith for your replies.

I had a quick look at Easytree & seems like they want registration details before revealing possible Glenn 'goodies'- I obviously heeded what Keith had to say & conducted a few tests of my own,using Kazaa & WinMX.

Kazaa 'intoduced' some 30+ pieces of Spyware/adware on to my computer in a couple of hours!!WinMX in single figures!

Needless to say I got rid of them using a spyware remover but certainly noticed my computer slowing down (perhaps it was me after staring at the screen for a couple of hours!!)
By a stroke of luck, I did manage to get 'Superstition'

Obviously the invasion of my computer was not welcome, & coupled with today's emphasised warning from the BMI(?) re pending prosecutions for file-sharing culprits it really doesn't seem worth it.

Given that, I don't know what the legal position is in downloading true Bootlegs using these resources as the recordings are not available in a way that the artist concerned would benefit in any case.

As a fan, like all you reading this, I want to hear as much from Big Daddy as possible & I can make up my own mind as to what I like & what I don't....it ain't gonna stop me liking Glenn's music as a whole or detract my admiration for what he has/will achieve.

Oh well, back to Burn(remastered) & Dep Sessions.....I hasten to add bought through a legitimate source www.cdxpress.co.uk - who I can thoroughly recommend for speed & service,even splitting an order so I could get SLITCOA DVD early instead of having to wait for Burn to be released.

Have a good weekend
Ben

According to their web site:

"Does BitTorrent contain spyware or adware?

No, BitTorrent contains no spyware, adware, or any other kind of -ware.

Some warez sites are distributing spyware-wrapped versions of the BitTorrent installer. Please only download the BitTorrent installer from this site."

I didn't trust that statement, so I checked myself and have found nothing whatsoever.

So....proceed at thy own risk...
