This is not  a bootleg of the complete Beatles sessions. It is, however, a collection of a heck of a lot of them - a 62-disc set that contains literally days of alternate takes, banter, home recordings, and other Beatles miscellany. Enjoy.

The debut performance of The Smile, the latest Radiohead-related project. A three piece band with Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and jazz drummer Tom Skinner, the band made their public debut as part of an online livestream to replace the 2021 Glastonbury Festival, things still not happening due to a certain global pandemic. An eight-song setlist, seven of which are new songs and one of which has been kicking around for a decade or so, which cover all of the ground they have with their main band....

A massive archive of R.E.M. rarities, featuring basically every non-album track from 1981 to 2004 - B-sides, compilation appearances, fan club singles, etc., etc.. Unfortunately the source I got this from wasn't tagged, so everything's just listed as 'Track 1', 'Track 2', etc. I did  copy across a .txt from another source (that I, for some reason, couldn't get any of the .flac files from), so at some point in the future I'll edit this upload and add the stuff - maybe, there's a lot of it here...

Audio of The Smile's debut performance, a Yorke/Greenwood/Skinner trio at Worthy Farm for a festival live stream that kinda bunged up . Seven totally new songs and one sort-of-new one that offer hints of what's next, but raise more questions than answers - isn't that just the way we like it though? This is the direct rip from the video , so the audio quality is as good as it can get even though the FLACs will be lossy-sourced.

All shows are captured here, which start with an early version of that album in full before an hour-long encore of other tracks features.

A six-DVD bootleg compilation covering the first six albums of Radiohead's career, taking in interviews and live broadcasts from a wide variety of sources. There's literal days of video in here, so enjoy (once it's all uploaded). EDIT: Discs 3-6 are uploaded in full, with 1 and 2 partial (my internet crapped out in the middle of the uploads, so they're not all up yet).

A good quality audience recording from one of Pink Floyd's few 1974 shows, a highly transitional period for the band - three new lengthy pieces were premiered during the year, being further developed released over the band's next few albums; they then followed this up with a sequential performance of The Dark Side of the Moon  and an encore of the much-loved 'Echoes'.

A truly ridiculous show from the European leg of the Nevermind  tour, with more cover songs and rarities than you could think of. Kurt ran out with a plate of fruit salad before the show, throwing at the audience; they played a very loose jam on the Doors song 'The End'; they invited audience members up on stage to dance; and Dave keeps singing about waffles - well, it is  Belgium... All the photos I put in the folder are from livenirvana.com's page for this show; go give them a look....

R.E.M. finished the European tour for Up , played mostly at festivals, with their maiden performance in Slovenia.

R.E.M.'s first show in Kansas City since 1995, and to make up for the delay they play one of the craziest setlists of the whole In Time  tour. Requests for songs from their website are played in huge amounts, giving us insane tour rarities - 'Star 69' as opener , going all the way back to 1982 for 'Gardening at Night', three straight Reveal  songs in the set, and plenty of lesser-heralded highlights.

This is the famous '1984 Birthday Show' which is from the soundboard. The source I took this from had numerous glitches (pops/bangs/noise residue from the venue) which I have tried to fix. There has also been a lot of 'quiet' sections such as audience cheering and gaps between songs. Some lasted at least 3 or 4 minutes, so they have all been edited out, creating a fully seamless live set. Also included is my own artwork, going on the Purple Rain album cover vibe.

Performing at Bumbershoot 2003, the last act on the fourth day after Modest Mouse, Donovan, Evanesence, and Wilco had played earlier - another strong setlist from the In Time  tour where they go towards 'best of' rather than 'greatest hits'. High quality recording, featuring one of just two performances of 'New Test Leper' for the tour. Track listing: [intro] Begin the Begin Finest Worksong Maps and Legends Drive Animal Fall on Me Bad Day Daysleeper Exhuming McCarthy Electrolite New Test Leper...

A new (superior!) source of Radiohead's second Osaka show for 2001. Pretty good recording, the final performance to date of 'Permanent Daylight', and an epic second encore where they take Krautrock cover 'The Thief' into 'The Tourist'. Track listing: [intro] The National Anthem [with 'Hunting Bears' outro] Morning Bell Lucky Karma Police In Limbo My Iron Lung Climbing Up the Walls Exit Music (for a Film) No Surprises Dollars and Cents Fake Plastic Trees I Might Be Wrong Pyramid Song Paranoid...

Not technically a bootleg, but a basically unavailable tape from the Icelandic post-punk outfit. Lots of gloomy noise and squawking saxophone, with the powerful voice of an 18yo Bjørk (as she credited herself at the time!) on full display. Track listing [some doubt on names]: Seagull Open the Window and Let the Spirit Fly Free Gibraltar (Copy thy neighbour) France (A Mutual Thrill) Greece (Just By The Book) The Spire Anna Dismembered Aegean (Vials of Wrath) Holland (Latent) Pökn (Fyrir...

An infamous bootleg, long-lost and regarded as a "holy grail" by some within Floyd fandom. A fan re-edit of "The Wall" and "The Final Cut" to produce an epic, thematically cohesive work. Made by Zolcaro Productions. Disk 2 of 2 in this item. FLAC and MP3.

The dust had barely settled on the groundbreaking Kid A , soon to be acclaimed as an all-time masterwork and a paradigm-shifting album, when Radiohead announced the impending release of their fifth album, Amnesiac . They had half a dozen songs left over from the 2000 tour, plus more that they hadn't replicated live (unsurprising, considering the studio complexity that went into the album - the only two Radiohead LP tracks yet to be played live are both from Amnesiac ), and a new album was a...

A fan assembled compilation of (mostly) excellent recordings and performances from (mostly) 1983, when R.E.M. released their first album Murmur  on their way to take over the world. Basically every song they played here features on this 3xCD compilation, the first of which shares much of its source with the official release on Murmur 's 25th anniversary and the last two of which show just how many covers they made. Track listing: Disc 1 Wolves, Lower [1983-07-09 Toronto, Canada] Moral...

In late 1992, the Smashing Pumpkins gathered together in an identified Chicago studio to get down demos for some of the songs they'd been playing live that summer, as well as a few others that had been written. After a quick session, they delivered a cassette tape to the record label - Quiet and Other Songs: A Collection of Songs for Album II . Of the tape's twenty-two tracks, eleven would end up on Siamese Dream , while a few others would be restricted to B-sides or not released, either until...
