Thanks for the visit. You raise an interesting question. Since, even now when everyone seems to have software to make music sound nice, bootlegs tend to be marginal from a sound standpoint (esp. the ones that come out a day after the show), wouldn't bootleg classical concerts just sound like crap?

It's like blogs: valuing immediacy over permanent perceived quality. But I may be the exception among classical music lovers, on that one.

And while the Springsteen bootleg I have from the 1970s has really bad , the more recent bootlegs I have of Radiohead are not bad.
