Can we get a bit more information about it? What is the name of the band? (A good place to see if it's legit is to check the band website as they usually have a discography list there.) Who is it put out by (the label name)?

Did you look at their official forum? http://www.melvins.com/ (Sorry, I'm on dialup and can't get the site to load.)

What I meant by label is like "Columbia Records" or "Arista" or "Deca", etc.

i know what you meant by label. and the label is "your choice live series"
tried the site, but all i get is a pop up with new music by them, can't navigate to any actual info.
i think this is a boot, but it has a physical address listed for the label which i find odd for boots

Very strange label name - I thought you were just accidentally giving me back some boot title on the cover. Sorry about that.

Is this it? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Your_Choice_Live_Series_Vol.12

It does look official - here is the discography on wikipedia (look under the Live albums) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melvins_discography

that's the conundrum i'm in, looks somewhat official, but any lists i've found (like the ones you mentioned) have both boot and official recordings listed. bought it years ago at a store in canada that was shut down for selling boots. guess for now i won't up it til i can find out for sure if it is indeed official or a boot

We had that one sold in our store back in 2001/02, I remember it being definitely official. As far as I remember, that was an European, even German series of releases, including other Indie-artists.
