Semiofficial live albums

In this section I will list all those live albums that have been released legally (or at least they pretend to be!) but not because Motorhead wanted it, but because some label had the rights, or licensed the rights, to the recording and put it out. These albums are therefore not really bootlegs (maybe official bootlegs would be adequate) but they have not released on the initiative by the band although the band might very well have approved them. On the other hand, Motorhead were not very keen on releasing No Sleept til Hammersmith either when that one was released. And not very fond of Steamhammer releasing the Boneshaker release as Live At brixton. But that is antother story.

A lot of these recording have been released with totally different titles and sleeves but they still contain the same recording. The 1977 Birmingham show first released in 1989 as Blitzkrieg on Birmingham have been released in a million different versions but it is still the same recording so therefore you will have to look in that seciton. A problem is that the record company who release it does not say it has previously been released with another title. Even some have been first released as bootleg initially but have later got a more "official" release (even if that can be questioned).

I have not included the Extended Versions CD here. Since it is a compilation of the live songs included on the Everything Louder Than Everyone Else Album I have included Extended Versions there.
