....being bootlegged again you mean.

Best avoided.

Before you ask, DOL have not licensed this from the band or Warners.

This pressing of the preston gig is official and very good:

Cheap(ish) here:

None of these are genuinely official and approved, nobody actually licensed them from the band. It's more a case of the murky world of sub-licensing (licensed from someone who it was previously licensed to).

The band will never get paid for them.

I disagree re the Drastic Plastic release.

"the only vinyl release currently available of this title to be officially sanctioned"

I know the "Get Back" label is some dodgy Italian (?) boot label but Drastic Plastic Records reissue many very well known acts so they are legit (as far as I can gather anyway) and must surely pay the band in some way.

I'd be interested to know who they licensed it from then.

These two releases are totally rubbish and need replacing, all the sources used can be improved upon now so why would anyone need to own these?

I wonder if they have the gaps in between the songs and taken from that horrible box set

What's the best available source for the Preston gig?  Shadowplay bootleg?
