Re: Seeking a couple of Cale shows

I've just started to make a list of my Cale concert tapes, up to 600 so far but no intention of uploading anything to dime though...forgotten how to do it anyway, sorry. The Hunter/Ronson thing isn't in circulation, never say never but it's unlikely to be released. From memory the vocals are split b...

Re: Seeking a couple of Cale shows

The article by Ben is quite good but has a few things not quite true, Cale didnt do a North American tour at the start of 1977, he played around the New York area, did a show in Boston, two in Toronto then went to LA to play a few nights at the Starwood Club Jack the Ripper wasn't cancelled as a sin...

Re: Seeking a couple of Cale shows

let the CBGB's taper i know be known as K, he's critical of what was put out on the "Even Cowgirl's..." release because of sound quality. Maybe Curtis did use his own tapes but the K tapes are better sound quality and he had a bigger archive. K also has a series of New York Cale CBGB's shows from 19...

Re: Seeking a couple of Cale shows

What the CBGB's taper did was make compilations of his favourite performances from the shows he recorded. Those compilations survived the theft but dates of each performance were not kept.

Re: Seeking a couple of Cale shows

There was a guy who taped most of Cale's CBGB's shows 77-79 but several shows had more than one taper

Re: John Cale at VU Experience, New York

I haven't been to the exhibition but have followed it closely in the press. There's a "wall of influence" (my term) in the basement.

Kraftwerk too. Someone explain please

One funny thing, when Cale announced the VU show at Liverpool Docks there was a feature with Cale on Channel 5 news, in it they played the Russian vinyl lovers counterfeit copy.
