After the "Puttin On The Ritz' bootleg there is now another Zappa bootleg album LIVE TO AIR on spotfy,
i can't see why the ZFT do not get these taken down?

This new one appears to be material played live on SNL.

Is it possible for anyone to upload unauthorised material on Spotify? Bedause I don't think so. It is more likely, it was uploaded by ZFT and it is sort of "Beat The Boots" - they can make money on it, yet it does not count into the official discography.

Have you ever uploaded music to spotify? I have and its very easy to do so, no checks are made you just tick a box saying you own the rights, thats it easy.

This was released by something called peacock records and has nothing to do with ZFT.

OK, thanks - I don't have Spotify profile, and did not see info about who uploaded it
as far as I understand, you can't upload music on Spotify on your own, and it's not so easy, you need to have some label or distributor - http://www.spotifyartists.com/guides/ - so it's just not like uploading music on Youtube
anyway, maybe I should try it :mrgreen:

Thanks but i am a musician and i distribute my music digitally worldwide to spotify itunes etc, so i am not making this up, it is easy to do and no one checks if you own the rights, you just tick a box saying you own the rights and thats it, what's to stop bootleggers sending music if know one complains, so while i can sense the sarcasm in your reply all i can say is yes it is as easy to upload to as youtube :-)

Aren't there "grey market" versions of the SNL performances available on DVD? I could have swore that I saw a DVD for those performances on Amazon. Here's one. Is that not the same performances that you're referring to?

Man I got those SNL episodes on bootleg DVDs years ago. Not half bad either, the things had menus so you could go to the music or watch the FZ skits.

I got that dvd years ago too. I don't like it that much. But my edition has a rich booklet (70 pages) with photos, that is the best thing of the object.

+1
Bootleg and grey market are totally different stories.
And this one is definitely grey market.
See also these ones sharing the same source material:
