Any compression been used on the remastering? Original CD is dynamically good. cheers
I have the 1987 boot too. I didn't know it was a boot until I came here. Ah well. Sounds okay and I am happy with the $25 I spent on it. I've paid silly money for earlier stuff!
I love this Fall album, because it is so very "Punk" in a way, Mark E. Smith didn't give sh't about sound quality or what the fans might say. This is one of my fav. The Records itself is well done, no side noises or some other artifacts. All Fall-Fans should have a try on this one.
The outer sleeve on mine is significantly bigger than the three discs. The inner sleeves all got dinged during shipping, sliding around inside the carefully packed sealed outer. I still need to put the cd on to compare.
there's roundabout 5 mm space in height. mine was shipped to germany - all fine.
i'm not so sure about the sound quality on this re-issue: sometimes it sounds very CD-ish, sometimes even below. i do understand that the original material that Mark E. Smith brought to the studio (answering machine type of low-fi/distorted recordings of his voice, low-fi beat sample (?) etc ) can already be regarded as quite difficult. i never listened to the original LP from 1997. sound-wise it's maybe the most inconsistent Fall studio album to my knowledge (which is nothing bad per se). the artwork is great, pressing quiet and clean. it's a fun album to listen.

It has been out of print for a number of year snow and is much sought after by fans.It's the last album to feature two long-time Fall members, drummer Karl Burns and bass player Steve Hanley (whose playing was once described by Smith as the defining element of the group's music)..The album was initially going to be produced by Keir Stewart and Simon Spencer (who previously collaborated with Smith under the moniker D.O.S.E. on the 1995 single 'Plug Myself In'). Most of the recordings took place at Edwyn Collins' studio in West Hampstead. However, Stewart and Spencer soon fell out with Smith over payments and left after a week, taking most of the tapes with them. The only tracks from these sessions to make the album were "4? Inch" (allegedly edited out of samples of a rehearsal recording), 'Spencer', later re-dubbed by Smith as 'Spencer Must Die', and 'The Quartet of Doc Shanley'. .This re-issue has been re-mastered by long term Fall engineer Andy Pearce and features new sleeve notes by Daryl Easlea: it is presented as a 2-CD set and a 3-LP Set.
Got a copy today at Christiania and there it was . Did'nt know about a boot release . Thought it was the real thing and ofcourse its the 1987 version :-(
This is going to be re-issued on 3LP or 2CD by Cherry Red in May.
Found a copy of this at my local shop for $17 the other day and just about flipped. Of course I thought it was the real thing until discogs told me otherwise. Still a fine pressing, doesn't feel or sound like a bootleg at all. I's definitely quieter than records I typically rip to MP3, though. I had to turn my line-in volume up to the max.
The Sphinx of Driz
A Dive Bomber in a Low FlightStill avant-garder and avant-garder, Alice would say after levitating through this dubious Wonderland. I would've called first three songs: "Ten Houses of Eve", "Masquerade", "Hurricane Edward" - dance music if only I could find some choreographer crazy enough to make proper dances. "I'm a Mummy" is an angry cover of some rock 'n' roll as ancient as this said mummy. Everything else in this album is no less fantastic and are never lower than a high degree of artful craziness. "Can you dig the ten houses of Eve? Turn around and look at the ten houses of Eve and will blood flow till you see. Do you believe you can enter the houses of Eve? Wake up and see" - not every house of Eve built by Mark E. Smith is accessible though.
To my ears this pressing sounds great and is on good quality vinyl, quiet and flat. "Levitate" isn't exactly an audiophile quality album to start with and I would be surprised if the original LP is any better considering how ropey some 1990's pressings are.
anyone know how many of the boot was made?

Sound quality is ok, it's a bootleg so I wasn't expecting audiophile quality. Better than paying over £100 or more. A great if not bizarre lp.
OK? CD copy that is. Waste of money in my opinion!
Just so people know there is a new boot doing the rounds.
got me a boot! three of them were at Amoeba in SF. the runout is ARF LP 8
The bootleg now has it's own release page http://www.discogs.com/Fall-Levitate/release/6588687
It's been reported that the bootleg's runout reads: ARF LP 8
