The Original Bootlegs is a series of six Tori Amos live albums, recorded during the Original Sinsuality and Summer of Sin tours, both of which were in support of her 2005 album, The Beekeeper. Double-disc sets were released for each complete show, which were initially released in pairs and sold individually or as a pair.[1] On December 6, 2005 a cardboard-housed compilation of all six concerts was released, titled The Original Bootlegs.[2] Amos later released a similar series, titled Legs and Boots via digital download. Packaging is minimal with artwork featuring animal silhouettes, following the theme of The Beekeeper, which places songs into different metaphorical gardens.[citation needed]
