JJ Cale bootlegs online

Just in case somebody doesn't know, there are a bunch of JJ bootlegs as low quality WMAs at:

I dig them, and I know JJ is fine with bootlegs. I just wish he released all the stuff that he has in his archives! The last tour was recorded in it's entirety, for example.


  1. Man! This is awesome, I didn't know this site.
    And congratulations for your blog, this is really interesting.
    I'm a fan of JJ Cale since 1985 at least and I learned the guitar, playing along Cale's songs. I'll try to help you if I can.
    Thank you again!

  2. Hi!
    I am a big fun of JJ Cale, his the best blues-rock musician ever! On the YouTube I recently found a fantastic video about the 2004 JJ concert at the Gothic Theatre, Englewood. I so wonderfull and so different from the studio versions! And I am desperately trying to find a torrent for it on the Internet, but I hadn't succeed. Could you guys help me, where can I find this bootleg concert album, or even buy it, if it necessary? This would be a little difficult, 'cause I am writing from Budapest, Hungary, Europe...
    Thanks for the help! Fine home page!

  3. Thanks for the comment!

    I do have it (2 CDs), and I bet many others do too. Let's hope there is a way for you to get a copy... but please don't buy bootlegs.

  4. Thanks for the cool site. Glad to know JJ's okay with boots. I recorded 2 shows on the last tour and have around 40 altogether. Up for trading. :-) I also figured out the chords to 'Fancy Dancer' if anyone wants them. Verse: B/F#/E/B. Chorus: Ab/E/F Ab/E/E/F#/B. Not certain about the second measure of E in the last line of the chorus, but the rest I'm pretty sure about. play it and let me know what you think.

  5. which shows did you rec on last tour?
