First bootleg ever on CD?
« on: October 09, 2004, 05:33:17 AM »

According to Clinton Heylin in his book Bootleg: The Secret History
    Of The Other Recording Industry:

    * 1987: The Beatles - Get Back acetate, BBC sessions, and Sessions
   (Probably the first genuine bootleg CDs; a young entrepreneur
   convinced the Technotronics pressing plant in Philadelphia that
   he worked for EMI and needed these three CDs pressed in                 quantities
   of 500 each as "promos".  They did it!  He sold most of them for
   $100 each at the 1987 Beatlefest.)

I know it wasn't the first, but I remember when "Ultra Rare Trax" came out. It was truly outstanding, to have these tracks in such good quality. I think this was 1988.
