"Bootlegs" is a compilation of material that was "written before and after 'Cool From the Wire' and 'Turn of the Screw'." As with those two albums, the material on this disc is excellent and surprisingly well recorded, considering that this disc was produced without the help of Max Norman. Very impressive songs with the late Henrik Ostergaard on vocals. As always great hooks with crunchy riffs that will get your head shakin' and your feet stompin'. "Bootlegs" was released in 1991 and is now almost impossible to find.
