Touch Sensitive... Bootleg Box Set is a five disc live box set by The Fall, released in 2003. Each disc features a full live set from either April or November 2001, making it the most comprehensive live document of any era of The Fall's long career thus far. The discs are not arranged chronologically. Due to the brief timespan, there is considerable repetition - the bulk of the material is drawn from 2000's The Unutterable and 2001's Are You Are Missing Winner. As the use of the word bootleg implies, the sound quality varies but it is generally superior. A handful of tracks from the first 2 discs also feature on the 2G+2 album.
