BOOTLEG
Music Lover, Admin

An illegal pressing of a record that was recorded at a concert and does not have the band or record company's permission to do so. Can also be used to describe illegally pressed music from a company's vaults that was acquired without the record company's permission. The term was also used with 50s and 60s 45-rpm collectors as exact reproduction and forgery. Bootleg is also incorrectly and improperly used as a synonym of counterfeit and reproduction.
