I collect Elvis Bootlegs for about 20 years, my very first one was Hot and Tight form the flashback label, following up with Pure Diamonds and Pure Diamond II. What is your first bootleg ? Here’s a picture of my, very first 15 cd’s

The first one was "Please release me" in 1969 or 1970. Got all the other ones after this also as soon as they escaped but stopped buying the ones where they repeated them by rehashing the same recordings with a new title.

The Lost Performances (Dizzy Miss Prizzy) (1992) - of all things! :shock:
I no longer have it in my collection, though.
Not exactly a top notch release...

First LP, Radio Thrills (1980), First CD, Hollywood Sessions (1989) - I just remembered, the day my first son was born, I received 'There's Alway's Me volume 1' (and the Flaming Star DF) that glorifying day was on March 27th, 1995

My first "import" album was From the Beach to the Bayou and my first (and still favorite) CD was Finding the Way Home. There have been an awful lot of great ones since, but that one remains #1.

My first Bootleg was Rock My Soul and I bought at the same time a double album containing one record with the Rock My Soul album and the other with out takes from Elvis On Tour both records have labels has songs and performer credited to another artist. My first import CD was In My Way tracks taken from Behind Closed Doors four disc set. In the LP days I bought nearly everything that come my way, but now adays I don't play them anymore.

TOM from North Carolina,

For goodness sake, can you tell me what these messages means my friend -

...Attempting to give a damn...

...Process failed. Damn not given.

They come under your name. Can you see them on your PC My Friend?!

As was mine.

The first vinyl bootleg I found was a little 45 on the Chicken 101 label. It had "That's All Right" on the A-side, "Blue Moon of Kentucky" on the B-side, both taken from a superb-quality tape of Elvis' October 16, 1954 "Louisiana Hayride" debut. It was a revelation!

Mine was this one, purchased from a shop called Memory Lane in Northampton in the mid to late seventies. It cost me 4 quid at the time.

Why is yours doing that?? are you sure you have everything set up correctly??

Mine says it went through OK, I'd like to know why your damn was not given. How odd.........................

Benski, Your post is most perplexing. Are you saying you don't get that unusual message behind Tom from North Carolina's name at all, my Friend?!

Ben, You don't really loathe THE BEATLES do you?! Try getting your hands on the boot BEATLES NOT FOR SALE, my friend!
