Roine Stolt has confirmed on the FK Yahoo group that the Agents of Mercy live album listed on progarchives, "Magic Kingdom", is in fact a bootleg and should be removed.  http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=49220

Also, the person who made the recording has a free version on archive.org, with Roine's permission and he also verified that the recording was his and that it is not an official recording and should not be for sale.

not legit -

there is only ONE legit live recording from Agents of Mercy -
and that’s the Power of Two  CD.

if it says “Magic Kingdom ……..” it is most likely from "Magic Room" in Boston,
and with Nick DV on drums.

Roine.

^ But it's also on Mellow Records (not a pirate label, as far as I can tell) bandcamp page: http://https://mellowrecords.bandcamp.com/album/agents-of-mercy-magic-kingdom

Thanks, I'll send PM to admins, decision is up to them.

Well, Mellow's Bandcamp had its own version of Kate Bush's new Live album up on that page before the real thing was released.  I got to hear it for about a day before it mysteriously vanished.  LOL

^^ It has been claimed before that the Mellow Records bandcamp account has had bootlegs available for purchase (legal disclaimer: don't sue the messenger). I'm removing it as I have not found it listed on the Agents of Mercy site and because of what was written by Infandous. Thanks for alerting me, Eugene.


In case it is ever claimed as an official release, here is the info from the album page:

5. A Different Sun (13:04)

Total Time 46:24

There are many officially released CD's recordings on Discogs listed as unofficial.  These unofficial CD's usually cost less then the official releases. 

Are these Discogs unofficial releases ripped and burned from official releases?  Are there other explanations?

I ask because I'm  tempted to purchase an official unofficial RPI release.

^ Wrong thread, this one is for reporting bootlegs in PA database.

Anyway to your question - it's necessary to check each particular case. Some are burned from official releases, some have simpler artwork, some were released as bootlegs first and then officially.
