I thought I cancelled it. Are we allowed to add these type of comp bootlegs here?

Given the amount of thought and effort that seems to have gone into the collection, I don’t see why we couldn’t keep it. It’s not just a random personal collection. Especially given that he intentionally removed the tracks that had official releases.
