Part 1 of my conversation with special guest Ric Dube as we discuss bootlegs. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and live music from Mission of Burma, The Minutemen and The Dirtbombs.

Show notes:

- Check out Ric's latest project, Trademark of Quality

- Powered by BBQ

- TMOQ doesn't have actual bootlegs, but features essays about them

- Bootlegs comprise anything not released by a record company

- Jay: Discovered bootlegs and imports in record stores in the '80s

- Ric: First boot was a Springsteen live set from '81

- Jay: First boot was a Zeppelin live box set

- Both sound terrible

- Ric: Most bootlegs he owns are of The Replacements

- A lot of originally bootlegged 'Mats B-sides have turned up on official reissues

- Jay: Bought Prince's Black Album in late '80s from bootleg tape vendor at UNH

- Ric made cassette sleeves in early '90s for bootlegs with manga images

- Ric: Recorded bootlegs at live shows

- Also sold VHS tapes

- Jay: Had a list of bootlegs for sale in early '80s

- Used to get bootlegs from the old Rockit Records stores in '80s and '90s

- Ric: Pitching your bootleg wares to record stores

- Now there's countless boots available for free online

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Mission of Burma - Red (live on WERS)

The Minutemen - One Reporter's Opinion/Political Song for Michael Jackson to Sing (live at The Blue Note)
