Skynyrd Bootleg Trading Forum?
March 10, 2011 7:09:13 PM UTC Post #1

Guys (and gals), for all the relentless touring Skynyrd has done over the years, there really are not that many live shows out there being traded, or if there are, I can't seem to locate them. Sure, I surf Dime, Guitars101, etc. and have all of the "common" shows, but I'm surprised there aren't many shows from the G&G Tour. I damn well LOVE that album and just wish a few more live tapes would surface. Is there a Skynyrd Live Music Forum for trading that I don't know about?????

You don't really need to many bootleg shows to have most of their best songs.Their also not really a tape friendly band.Every tour they play the same set list night after night.Off G@G i think they only play 1 or 2 songs off it.I love em and buy everything they put out but their basically a 1 hour and 15 minute greatest hits package.I understand why they do it but it would be nice to see them mix it up like say the Allmans who never play the same set list 2 nights in a row.Can't wait to catch them on Moogis tonight at the Beacon.Ya think Skynyrd would get bored playing the same thing every night.I would love to see them bring out some of their lesser known older stuff.The fans would love it and ya think they would too.The cool older songs they put in a medley the last time i saw em.Come on guys nothing says tribute band more than a medley.

My husband (roadfatigue) records lots of Skynyrd shows. He doesn't trade them because most of what is already out there he has. Someone would really have to up the ante to get some of these recordings. He like you is into the deeper cuts. Songs that most fans have never heard live.

What you do for yourself dies with you, but what you do for others can live on forever.

Honestly, I did not realize Skynyrd was not a taper friendly band. Too bad, as a lot of bands are allowing taping these days, as long as they are feely traded. Now, I do understand about selling bootlegs, or pirating records, as THAT is not cool, but free taping and trading of your favorite bands is a great way to spread the word. I STILL buy all that is commercially offered.

The only reason that he said they aren't taper friendly is because of the lack of set list changes. Nothing to do with the bands preferences.

Thats mostly why I only have The pre crash bootlegs. It seemed like they switched things up a lot more. Now if we are talking strictly about variety in setlists, then the Pre Crash band was a lot more taper friendly. That and their sound was phenomenal.

they why dont they just change up the set list?

If the fans all see the same show, you would think the band gets bored of playing the same stuff every night

i would go to more shows if they changed up the set lists, so now i just pick 1 show, and no more than 1 every 9 months

All I've got is 1975.11.06 Cardiff and 1976.08.21 Knebworth - I presume they're a couple of the common ones...
Great place to start for those who aren't into Skynyrd bootlegs already

Thanks for the tip, Paul - Skynyrd is one of the most underrated classic rock bands. We in Skynyrd Nation know better.

What rock lost in 10/77 was no less than what it lost in 2/59.

If you guys are interested in trading let me know what you have in a PM. Please state whether it's a SB or audience recording you are looking to trade, and if its mono or stereo. I have a full digital CD of Skynyrd playing a acoustic show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on 2-9-06 for the right offer. Absolutely no cash, don't even ask.

@RoadFatigue so, is yours a SBD or an AUD? And any CD is digital, or it would be on tape.
I am sorry, but if you cant/wont trade with out a "PM" and an "offer" than that defeats the purpose of trading... personally I have dozens of un circulated Skynyrd shows, but with these terms, I would not want to trade

@gmm6797: It was a AUD recording on DAT then transfered to CD. If you don't like the conditions that's perfectly fine by me.
