Pearl Jam Vinyl Bootlegs

Hello everyone, so obviously Pearl Jam is big into the bootlegs, but I know vinyl bootlegs are harder to find than the CD's. I was recently in London and picked up about 5 or 6 bootlegs ranging from 1991-1998. I was simply wondering what are some common bootlegs on vinyl? Some really good ones and why? Post photos too I love to see them!
Thanks

    The Atlanta 1994 bootleg vinyl almost broke my needle when it slid all across the vinyl.

    the Australian 1998 is a good quality one. just a white sleeve with the setlist, but it sounds great.

    Although incomplete, it's a great show.

    Be careful. A lot of vinyl bootlegs are sourced from digital, so you're not really getting the benefit of higher fidelity.

    Agreed. Especially for the price. I think I paid $20 for this.

    Exactly... digital source without the convenience of skip. Not much benefit in my mind.
  • Vinyl bootlegs completely suck.. And I'm one crazy person that still collects these old unofficial bootlegs silver Cd's from the 90's.. Vinyl boots are only made because vinyl is goin big again in recent years, but I will never understand the point of buying that crap. At least, some live cd's from unofficial labels in the past did include some exclusive sources not available elsewhere.. Plus, I noticed in recent years bootleggers have become so much fuckin lazy.. Back in the days it was not rare that they sent tapers to the show they want to be bootlegged, for example.. Now it seems many assholes are just downloading a torrent or using a lossy source and just make a boot out of it.. Today I seen there are two incredibly lame Eddie Vedder boots on ebay: one is a rip from water on the road (I swear!), the other I'm pretty sure is from a lossy mp3 source of the 2012 Amsterdam 1 show.. Plus there is already the boot from Global Citizen fest, taken from the webcast or youtube.
    excuse the rant, again but i just think bootlegging had some kind of "dignity" in the past, now it completely sucks.
  • It looks like the Parachute (whoever they are) Label is bootlegging 2 PJ shows on vinyl in march. Chicago 1995 (2 volumes on 2 LPs each) and Atlanta 1994 (on 2 LPs). I hope the PJ camp doesn't go down the same road as with the Las Vegas show and choose Chicago95 or Atlanta94 as the next vault release - it's kinda pointless to release shows where we already have very good soundboard recordings out there.

    I received the bootlegs a couple of days ago. Today I spun Chicago '95. As to no surprise it's the radio-feed and has the sound-quality one can expect from a radoi-sourced bootleg. Nevertheless it's fun to listen to the recording and - for a bootleg - the sound is ok. The packaging is top-notch (the bootleg-label even put the records in the middle of the gatefold (before sealing the whole thing) to prevent seam slips. The pressings (Chicago has two clear LPs and two black ones - Atlanta has two blue LPs) are flat and very clean.
