The label of Bootleg Studios, of Reddish, Stockport. Bootleg was set up by Roger Salmon and Phil Platt, and it operated from 1979 until around 1982.  Most of its recording work seems to have been done for other companies, but it issued several records on its own label. Catalogue numbers were in the BOOT-000s, and they reached at least BOOT-009.  Some Bootleg singles from the 1980s had injection moulded labels of the sort that were pressed in France; some paper labels were yellow instead of white. Collectable Bootleg records include an NWOBHM EP by Enigma featuring 'I Aim To Bluff' and three other tracks (BOOT-3; 1980), and an LP by Mod Revival band Direct Hits, 'Collision At Teen Junction' (BOOT-4; 1980). Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
