Notes

From The Fall Online website:

"On the original pressing of the box set, the versions of Container Drivers & New Puritan on CD5 were the album versions from Grotesque and Totale's Turns respectively, not the John Peel session versions that appeared on the original 7" single. This was due to initial difficulties in obtaining clearance from the BBC for the use of those session recordings. Later pressings have the correct John Peel session versions. There is nothing to visibly distinguish the different pressings."

I love The Fall but I have no idea why this counts as electronic music! That said, this box set is beautifully packaged but has one major drawback. The version of "Container Drivers" (truly a masterpiece) is not the John Peel session version that appeared on the original vinyl release of Kicker Conspiracy. Apparently, Castle Communications wouldn't pay the BBC to licence it to them. Instead, the version is the one from the Grotesque LP. Please stay awake if you have read this far ....
