Some new arrivals…

A new Darker Than Blue release of Deep Purple in Osaka in 1985. Two Zodiac Heaven And Hell bootlegs; a Zodiac version of Black Sabbath’s 2013 OzzFest concert in Japan. These four bootlegs are ‘brand new’.

Two Rainbow releases of 1980s concerts; two Black Box Rainbow bootlegs Of 2018 & 2019 concerts. Two 89-90 Sabbath boots on Lost And Found…

I will start posting these soon…

Summer Vacation

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! As you can all see, I am spending less time online. Perhaps even less than I expected — but earlier in June, I pretty much suspended all “quotas” about how frequently I would post new bootlegs.

For those who may be interested, I am enjoying ice skating this summer. While that may seem strange as a summertime activity, in the southwest United States (where I live), *indoor* ice skating is quite popular. I have been enjoying skating with several friends 4-5 nights a week!!!

The ‘soft opening’ of

I am launching a new blog for non-Purple bootlegs:

This is a “soft opening” announcement (as they would say in the restaurant industry)–so far there are only two bootlegs posted. Most days of the week, I will be posting at least one bootleg there.

It is likely that Michael Schenker and solo Ozzy Osbourne bootlegs will move to SpinsterBootlegs…

In the near term, I plan to post weekly “digest” posts here on PurpleHippies, listing links to new bootlegs posted on SpinsterBootlegs.

The Current Request Queue…

I have fallen sick this week… So no posts for a couple of more days.

I just want to acknowledge the requests in my queue:

  • DIO – California Trilogy 1983 (Shades)
  • DIO – Hammersmith Trilogy (Shades)
  • Ozzy Osbourne Soundboard Masters Vol. 1 & 2 (Zodiac)

At the risk of being overwhelmed by more requests, feel free to add additional requests in the comments. (Keep in mind, I am sick, so there will be a delay in responding.)

Please make *specific* requests. Not something like “any Rainbow from the 1980s” 😉

About The Recent Black Sabbath Poll

I have “hidden” the poll, but I thought I would share the results from the poll.

poll results

I cannot, of course, conjure more bootlegs out of thin air… But I do have more Ronnie James Dio era Sabbath to share, and there are more bootlegs I can acquire (primarily from 1992).

It is very useful to know that 1970s Sabbath is of interest to many people. That is an era for which I do not yet own many bootlegs, but where there are a lot that I can still acquire.

I do really enjoy the Tony Martin period. So, like it or not, you will see a lot more Tony Martin here 🙂

I have to say, it was no surprise to see that the post Tony Martin-era is the least interesting to my audience!
