LPs, SINGLES, PICTURE DISCS etc.
First off, let me state right away that I´m usually a huge fan of the vinyl bootleg and hunt after them like crazy!
That being said however, I am NOT a fan of the trend these recent years of mega limited editions - often only five or ten copies.
Not only is it almost impossible to find them, but if you do manage to track one of them down the price asked for them are nothing short of ridiculous.
I like to try to get as complete a collection as possible, but those limited quantities and accompanying prices
effectively kills both the collecting spirit and the wallet.
I´d rather spend my hard-earned cash on officially released products.
For this reason, I do not collect bootlegs by Ghost and only very few of the records listed in this section are my own.
I still like to keep an eye open for what´s out there and have saved pictures of bootlegs over the past years when I have found them.
I don´t have any first hand information on any of them and all I know is what can be read on the pictures.
More colors available of some release, a second run produced of another - I have no idea! When I find it I will add it, but for now, this is all I know.
All pictures come from searches on eBay over the years, Discogs and google.
If you have better pictures, additional information or pictures of a bootleg not listed - feel free to let me know.

"The early rituals".
Contains the band´s first demo and this bootleg was among the first LPs released on the band.
At least it was the first one with a wide distribution.
The black vinyl with the dark blue screen print was the only one available for several months,
and then came the white vinyl with either light blue or red screen print.
They are all supposed to made in 250 copies, but I´m pretty sure the black vinyl was made in higher quantity.
