    CD-R Bootleg
 
Image This bootleg CD, probably sold in Camden Market or other places such as record fairs, is assembled from live radio broadcasts, and press photos. Even though some pictures used are from the Short Album About Love era and not the Fin de Siècle era, the montage captures the spirit on how the band was perceived by the press and the audience in those days. On the other hand, the people who assembled the disc were certainly not fans: most of the song titles are wrong, and on the disc itself is printed ‘Devine Comedy’ !

Those Live on Radio 1 shows are great performances, but these recordings are a bit hiss-y and got a few cuts as wells. Digital copies of this CD are circulating around now, so those recordings are not rare. Another version of the Cambridge show has also been released on the Broadcasts bootleg.
