Cocteau Twins Bootlegs

Below is a list of audio and video bootlegs of the Cocteau Twins that I have collected over the last several years. I am always interested in obtaining new shows. If you have something you don't see listed here then please contact me. I don't sell these shows, but I am open to trades. The two sets of parentheses are for a grade(scale of 10.0) of the sound quality and source of recording/generation respectively. AUD means audience recording. FM means an FM radio broadcast. DAT means a digital audio tape recording. SB means a soundboard recording. VID means a video recording. Most dates are accurate but there may be some minor discrepancies. Most shows are available for trade. There are a few exceptions noted with an asterisk * .
