Sound examples of some bootleg recordings
This concert at the Paradiso in Amsterdam in 1983 is one of the most bootlegged concerts of The Sisters of Mercy.
One reason for this is surely that a recording of very good quality was taken from the soundboard during the gig and the according mastertape got then used for a variety of bootlegs,
from which a multiplicity of further bootlegs were easily ripped.
However, when copying the sound, the bootleg makers would often apply filters, change the pitch, or even overdub some effects, in order to achieve a distinct or even better sound.
Comparing the sound cuts below (the first metres of Sister Ray) from different bootlegs, one can observe these amazing variations of sound and pitch.
