Bootleg cassettes, and CD/DVDs yes, but never LPs. The production costs for a short run would kill any potential profit.

I am not disputing that they existed - out of China and Russia certainly, but they were so rare that a dedicated collector like myself has never seen one.
Actually, in the 60's-70's there were probably thousands, I had twenty to thirty alone, all vinyl LPs, but wouldn't be the least surprised at few if any making it to Oz... There were at least twenty-thirty for Jefferson Airplane/Starship (I had 5-6), countless for Dylan (I had 3-4) and innumerable for the Greatful Dead who sort of encouraged the taping of their live shows and release on vinyl from fans. Profit was never a part of this scene, it was fannish dedication and they most certainly didn't come from China/Russia, they were made in the US primarily and some in the UK.
