Is there a tool that can tell me what the compression level is for my flac files? Winamp and Foobar200 just give me the tag info, but not the compression level (i.e. 0/1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8) not the total compression %.

You can work out the compression percentage manually by dividing the bitrate by 1411 and multiplying by 100. Other than that I don't know, but I'm sure someone does.

That would be very difficult--it's not stored in any tag or metadata. However, it is theoretically possible to analyze a file and find out. Have a look at this thread:

the encoder compression level setting is not stored by default, unless some third-party tool is doing it.  it's possible to analyze (with flac --analyze) the frame headers in a FLAC file to guess though.  but you have to understand the format well.
