This was posted on JTT. I found it interesting and thought I’d share here. I went to the website url but I get the 404 error.

The Bootleg Cowboys project

The official trailer for the Bootleg Cowboys documentary coming this summer.

The inside storied history of live concert bootlegging told from the filmers perspective intertwined with artists opinions for or against.


(There are some unreleased shows there, amazing)

I sent them a message, since the FB link and their website were both dead links.

What happened with this doc? I see the FB page is no longer active. I’d love to see this full movie.

Almost finished. The FB page is still active not the original website. We had to cut expenses down so we could complete production. The website had to go. We’ll build a better one once the doc is officially ready for screenings.

When I click the Facebook link above I get:

Apologies. This one should work –

Thanks for the updated info Scott.

I’m not a filmer but I do author bootlegs so that is why I am interested in this doco. I can’t wait for it’s release.

The title is a little weird to me. If it wasn’t for the word Bootleg then I would not have viewed the original post on JTT.

BOOTLEG COWBOYS – The Music Industry’s Outlaw Historians
from thenosebleeds
Published on Dec 1, 2016

BOOTLEG COWBOYS is the story of concert bootleggers and their fight to document music history, against all odds. Blamed for destroying the music industry, and being lumped in with pirates and scalpers, they went to extraordinary lengths in order to film these much sought after live events. Resourceful, thrill seeking, ingenious and enterprising “tapers” found themselves being very small fish in a large pond, and vilified by everyone from the music industry to the FBI, and all for little to no money to show for it, they risked it all to supply fans with that little bit “extra”.

“Blamed for destroying the music industry”? Has this claim actually been made?

mcs5150: “Blamed for destroying the music industry”? Has this claim actually been made?

No kidding – talk about a false claim. Especially considering that recording quality wasn’t all that great until the ‘modern’ era, I can’t see how anyone recording shows stopped a fan from buying official product.

Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.
