Given the delay in getting regular LPs pressed, I wonder if pressing bootleg
vinyl is more profitable for the pressing plant than pressing legit stuff?
Something doesn't add up here.

Places like Cyrpus are the nexus for pirate CDs, so why not LPs? People
should keep in mind, when you buy pirate products, you discourage the labels
from reissuing anything remotely "risky" or obscure in their vaults. Pirate
releases of unauthorized live recordings are hurting the very artists you
may profess to like. Bottom line, when you support a bootlegger or pirate,
think about how you'd feel if someone expected you to work for no money. If
you're OK with that, then buy away.
