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.

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.

Unlike Dry was Rid Of Me, PJ Harvey's second album, a lot smoother produced. PJ Harvey, however, was also grown as a band. Contact with her backing band was better than ever and that led to some excellent arrangements. With producer Steve Albini behind the buttons played Harvey her musical strengths. Also on Rid Of Me we hear again the dynamic hard-soft-differences and known textual topics such as hypocrisy (in Me-Jane and 50 ft. Queenie) and her penchant for mysticism (in Snake and man-size Sextet). Highway 61 Revisted is a small tribute to Bob Dylan. Rid Of Me PJ Harvey with consolidated its position as one of the most important artistic innovators within the rock of the 1990s.

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.

Why Island don't hurry up and repress this is beyond me. Same for Too Pure Records with Dry.

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.
