member of the Van Halen Mailing List (then at Cornell University) as a service
to the mailing list.
I saw a need to list and keep track of all the Van Halen bootlegs that have
been issued over the years.
This list is by no means complete and I rely upon other people to provide
information on the bootleg recordings that they have or have seen.

What are Checksums/Fingerprints? They are electronic signatures that assure
files you receive digitally are intact and the same as what was originally transferred.
The two most common types are FLAC Fingerprints and MD5's. You will need the appropriate

signature has the filename first, and an MD5 signature has the filename last.
If you would like to use any of the material from this site, please ask first
by sending me a message at the address below.
Remember, this is just a "list". Nothing more, nothing less.
