Underworld - Bootleg Babies (2001)

A fan based collection of live recordings with Underworld in their heyday, essential to bring back the spirit of those days.

In 2001 several members on the rtsr-trade mailing list started this project. They wanted to release the best live recordings by Underworld gathered over the years. A bit like Underworld did with Everything, Everything. It kept the list busy for a while, since all the tracks where chosen with extensive polls. The members chose which track would be included; from which source; the name of the cd and the artwork. The cd was distributed from fan to fan around the world. Around 150 copies were made.
It doesn't matter how many times I hear these songs it always takes me to that happy place.



  1. Last vacation with my family in 1997 I listened to 'dubnobasswithmyheadman' a number of times. A year later the marriage was over. Underworld always reminds me of that last family vacation, but also, somehow 'takes me to that happy place'. I look forward to listening to this, many thanks.


  2. Thanks for sharing that story. Reinforces the power of this music to heal the soul.
