Rocket From The Crypt - Live From Camp X-Ray LP - Bootleg

Bootleg (2013)

A couple of months ago I started seeing this record show up online claiming to be a promo LP pressing of the last Rocket From The Crypt record, Live From Camp X-Ray. Had I only seen 1 pop up, I may have been inclined to believe that it was a promo, but dozens and dozens of them showed up at the same time. Since it wasn't particularly expensive and since I will not allow any holes in my Rocket From The Crypt collection, I picked it up for about $30 shipped from Europe.

It's a very good quality bootleg. The artwork is lifted from the advance CD that Vagrant sent out to radio & press prior to the album originally coming out. The quality of the sleeve is solid and the quality of the record itself is also completely fine. Maybe the slightest bit heavy on the bass, but honestly I can tell no real difference between this and the 2 official Vagrant pressings.

I'm not completely sure why this was the Rocket album that was picked to bootleg. It was just re-released and I don't even think the original is THAT hard to find, but as far as bootlegs go, at least it's a nice one. Oh and it should go without saying that the album is just outstanding, but you probably know that already.
