Bootlegs in wiki[ 3 votes ]
1. Yes, go ahead and list! 0 / 0%
2. No, how can you even suggest? 2 / 67%
3. Whatever 1 / 33%

Seems to be a good point to try out the polls. So, what do you think, should bootleg records be included in the wiki or not?

As fans I think we are all interested in anything Richard sings on.
I had no knowledge of the Koala album until recently.

BUT - if they are to be included the Wiki should CLEARLY mark the illegal and bootleg records. The same goes for the mysterious 'speculative' recordings that appear there too, and perhaps some explanation of where the information about them comes from - if it comes from anywhere at all.

For instance, in 1992 I was working for a record producer friend here in London. He approached Richard with a view to recording him, but there was no agreement. BUT - the backing tracks already existed. Should I therefore put these down as 'speculative? Rolling Eyes

I was hoping for a little more votes, so, I allowed anonymous voting. This poll is on for a week only.

So Richard never recorded vocals to backing tracks he did not play on? If that's the fact...then we have nothing.

I agree 100%.
I know for a fact the vocals were never recorded so the information is solid. But had someone stumbled across the information, or I had posted something unclear about it somewhere the information may have been speculated upon and a vocal assumed to exist.

So I know of course Beezy you agree the same has to apply to the 'speculative' recordings becuase thats all they are, specualtion.

Hi Timo. I would say Go ahead, if they are listed as bootlegs. Anything with the man is interesting, to my mind.

Greetings from Denmark, Vagn

Hey, sorry. I just looked at the previous dates. I thought this vote was a new thing.
