This was an impulse buy on a recent trip to Denmark. I was so excited to find what I thought was finally a reissue of this great album that I never noticed the misspellings of this bootleg. The packaging is great and It sounds pretty damn good so it will suffice until a legit reissue is released. My brief moment of buyer's remorse was in the rearview mirror after the first listen.

can anyone comment on how does this version compares to the cassette or cd?

Just found a version on ebay, but without these mentioned misspellings.

I just bought two copies of this pressing and they sound excellent! Don’t know what I’ll do with the second copy, but the packaging is amazing, and the record is brilliant!

I have the bootleg too - it has the same spelling mistakes on the back cover: 'Highway '61 Revisuited' and 'Soft Queenie' (as opposed to 50ft). To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect...but it was affordable and will indulge me well, until some proper remastered coloured gatefold vinyl editions are re-released! ;-) Constantly amazed at seeing lots of the rubbish being churned out on vinyl - yet outstanding artists such as PJ Harvey appear to be missed! To be honest, the sound is much much better than what I thought. Tiny bit of noise before the album starts on track 1 - but everything else, overall, was very very good! ;-)

Assuming this is the same bootleg I have, I'll say my piece.... My copy has Highway 61 Revisuited (typo) on back of sleeve....blue labels... Nice package, printed inner sleeve and polly lined sleeve also....no matrix. I think it sounds fantastic! I don't feel it plays low, anything but... The levels are all over the shop on this album anyway, it's a rough round the edges filthy album by design... Tricks you into turning it up, then smacks you in the chops! F***ing love it! This is a decent press, hardly any surface/needle noise, I've heard plenty worse legitimate pressings...I highly recommend it to those people who like me, haven't got hundreds of pounds to spend on an original! Truth is, we wouldn't need to buy a bootleg if they sorted out a proper repress!

I might have bought this bootleg... On the back cover of my version there's a typo: "Highway 61 Revisuited". Is this the one? Sound is ok, btw.

Same copy as you by the sound of it... Same typo.... I wonder is it a newer pressing, they seem to have surfaced on ebay lately... I notice you posted recently also, I bought mine this week (September 2018).

Can someone list how to tell a counterfeit from the genuine? I paid a pretty penny for what I believe to be authentic, but I want to make sure.

Is the bootleg heavier? The original one could be slightly lighter? I have that feeling....(sold my bootleg quite a while ago and cannot compare)

And what about sound. I found that the bootleg is somehow good without sibilance.

no Matrix / Runout etchings on the unofficial and the labels are darker on the unofficial, i have both copies

After looking closer at the pics, it looks like maybe the pirate has black labels while the real one has dark blue labels. This is just a guess based on the pics here.

this boot sound fantastic ??? i dont know what everyone's complaining....

So, I just listened to my copy. It's beautifully pressed, very quiet, and the jacket and inner printed sleeve are beautiful. The sound is not that great. I suspect it's sourced from a CD and wasn't properly EQ'd for the vinyl. I'd give it a 6/10 compared to the CD copy I have. Although, it does have warmer tones.

I also bought it for 15 euro.It is a rip off, but now I'm wiser. I should've known. It's too good to be true.No more of these in the future.Just wait for a good reissue and don't pay hundreds of Euro or $ for a real one.I simply refuse to do so..Eels' Beautiful freak on Back 2 Black was worthwhile waiting for instead of paying 400.I'm gonna frame it and stick to the CD.

I have tried about 5 copies of this hoping to get one as a shelf filler. As pirate LP's go, you have to admit it looks the part. I'll agree, the playback level is quite low but the vinyl is remarkably quiet so not quite the end of the world. The real issue is that every copy, without exception had side one pressed off-centre rendering the whole thing utterly useless unless you fancy framing the sleeve... Universal really need to pull their corporate finger out and reissue this.

I have a copy of the bootleg. The sleeve is a beautiful reproduction, but there are two small differences with the spine. Firstly, the font used for PJ HARVEY RID OF ME is not exactly the same. The original uses the same font as the cover, the bootleg's doesn't, but this will be difficult to judge unless you have an original with you to compare it to. The tell-tale sign is that there is no forward slash in the catalogue number on the bootleg. On the original, it reads like this : ILPS 8002/514 66-1. The bootleg's is ILPS 8002514 66-1.

Is there any difference in the packaging? How do I avoid this, any idea? Maybe the spine isn't the same? Thanks!

What do you mean about "off-centre"?

Beware! I was conned into buying one of these as if it were an original pressing (not by a discogs seller, I should add), supposedly in mint condition. I thought it was too good to be true. The sound reproduction on these 'unofficial reissues' is absolutely appalling. I was alarmed at just how poor it is, having to crank the volume on my amp up to twice the normal level to hear anything worthwhile, then only to get the sound of the grooves as additional and unwelcome accompaniment. When I discovered that these 'reissues' existed I put 2 and 2 together. Avoid this record at all costs, pay the money for an original, otherwise I promise you will be bitterly disappointed. I am.

I am. would love an original, however i certainly can't afford to shell out $200 for one and i doubt many others can, either. nor should they - paying inflated prices does nothing but give potential sellers encouragement to keep selling them higher and higher. not to say that this isn't a valuable, sought after record, it would just be nice if there were occasionally people parting with it who aren't motivated by trying to cash in and would sell for a reasonable price.only way to avoid this and poor-quality bootlegs is a proper reissue cut from the original tapes. it would be a real shame to have it be reissued by Plain or a similar reissue label that does a terrible job with no integrity or care for the music or product they're peddling, and don't even seek permission of the artists directly half of the time, just pay the licensing fee from the label that owns it. look at how poorly they've handled the cranberries, mazzy star, my bloody valentine, fionna apple records they've released.would be fantastic if PJ's albums got proper reissues.
