“The copy of 'GWW' that I bought on Telegraph Avenue in 1969 still sits proudly by my desk. Fascinating now to read this history of rock's demimondes.” ―Chet Flippo
“With its unholy mix of consumerism, conspiracy, fetishism, and felony, Clinton Heylin's secret history of bootlegging is enough to restore one's faith in the subversive spirit of rock 'n' roll.” ―David Dalton
“I think that bootlegs keep the flame of music alive by keeping it out of not only the industry's conception of the artist, but also the artist's conception of the artist.” ―Lenny Kaye, musician and critic
“Bootleg fans may ultimately consider this book nearly as crucial as Hot Wacks, a directory of underground titles...” ―Billboard
“A well-researched and wide-ranging book.” ―Chicago Tribune
“Full of arcane information and firsthand testimony, as well as a stream of anecdotal nuggets from the underground...” ―Los Angeles Weekly
“Heylin methodically punctures each and every record industry argument against bootlegging, while acknowledging that bootleggers themselves are often without the purest motives.” ―Los Angeles Reader
“Clinton Heylin's weighty, well-researched, entertaining and ostensibly authoritative tone is long overdue.” ―CMJ New Music Monthly
