Flying Horses Bootleg Label – Master List

Honoring a request I had. The flying Horses label out of Italy got started ca. 1980 and produced about 23 titles in small runs, as they are not easy to find these days, with the majority by US artists and several that were so far not represented in the world of bootlegs. Only a couple of their titles made it into HOTWACKS.

Their has never been a complete listing of their output before. This is what I have found so far, if you can fill the two gaps, please leave a comment:

“There was also a numbered box set, “Flyin’ Box” comprised of what were probably left-over discs from a number of their releases, plus a couple of non-Flying Horses titles: Stoneground “On Stage” (Blue Velvet Records) and the Jim Carroll Band “Live Dreams” (Hollywood Records). This suggests some kind of connection or affiliation. It is listed in Hot Wacks.”

    I hope the vacation went well. Thanks for the postings on Flying Horses …(Yes, my crazy request). I’ve never even seen some of the titles you’ve posted images for. What a mysterious label. I always felt the selections for releases were interesting and eclectic (certainly for my peer group, born in 1960). FC 021 was Bruce Springsteen “The Boss was Here” (Royal Albert Hall and Paris April 1981). Numbers 017 and 018 are unknown to me. There was also a numbered box set, “Flyin’ Box” comprised of what were probably left-over discs from a number of their releases, plus a couple of non-Flying Horses titles: Stoneground “On Stage” (Blue Velvet Records) and the Jim Carroll Band “Live Dreams” (Hollywood Records). This suggests some kind of connection or affiliation. It is listed in Hot Wacks. Thanks again for the postings. I can contribute to the magazine fund (…or the whisky fund. or the bier fund., for all the effort and work you put into this, you deserve it). Let me know. Thanks

  5. Thank you for asking. I added your comment about the box set to the main article. No need to send any money.
