A Guide To Pretenders Bootlegs

Bootlegs have a charm all their own. They're notorious for generous amounts of misinformation, from wrong dates and locations to goofy song titles. But that's part of what makes them so wonderful. Boots are a necessity for collectors, but even those with a passive interest in bands fall victim to their allure.

We've listed information, such as alleged record label and catalog number, as well as country and year of origin, exactly as shown on the bootleg. The tracks too are shown precisely as they appear - a tough job for those of us who'd rather eat mud than have you think we've made a typo. Special thanks to Kevin Caulfield for his keen observations and great help with this guide.
There's still some we've not been able to land our hands on, but here's what we've found so far.
