n. an unofficial recording of a concert

This term originated with smugglers and thieves who would hide things in the leg of their boots. It evolved to mean a pirated version of something. Some liberal bands such as the Grateful Dead, and more recently Phish and Pearl Jam allow fans to record their concerts, and distibute these recordings freely as long as they are not sold. Fans refer to such recordings as "bootlegs", even though they are legal.
Hey man, I got this funky Phish bootleg from Roseland, hook me up with that Europe '72 Dead show and I'll burn you a copy.
