| Audio / Video Bootleg Guide |  

This section is meant as a guide to the countless PiL bootleg audio & video recordings available. We hope this information can help you, but it is not meant as a trading page. These recordings are NOT available from this website or anyone involved. The reviews are for information only, please respect that.

This is NOT a definitive list of bootleg recordings available, additional reviews always needed …

We only list recordings we have reviews for. We're always looking for more reviews, so feel free to send in any contributions. Reviews of the RECORDING rather than a full-blown gig review are preferred in this section…
