Re: 1969 Live With Lou Reed private remaster

Glad you like it, velvetfan! I agree, FLAC is the only way to go for projects like this, especially when improving fidelity over the official release version is the intent. That said, if anyone doesn't know how to convert FLAC to MP3, or would just like an MP3 or AAC version, I could make those vers...

Re: More scanned articles

A puzzling aside from Yule in that 1975 interview - Daryl Hall and John Oates filled in as guitarists in the 1973 Velveteen band? What? Has anyone heard of this elsewhere? I needed to read that twice, it's a bit confusing, but Doug joined Hall & Oates rather rhat vice versa. Theres a brief note on ...

Re: 1969 Live With Lou Reed private remaster

Leaman. Great idea! Thank-you. I have not listened to this album for quite some time and also I could never face the qty of material in the Matrix box. I thought the conciseness and the sequencing of the original Live 1969 2xLP worked well, so this will be interesting to hear and see how it compare...

Re: 1969 Live With Lou Reed private remaster

Plan on this being bootlegged and for sale on AUDIOPHILE 220g VINYL!! Heh heh, that thought occurrred to me. As long as I get an Executive Producer and Compiler credit, and the attendant royalties, that’s OK with me. Should offset UMe, The Velvet Underground Corporation, and the estate of Lou Reed ...

Re: 1969 Live With Lou Reed private remaster

Those are my favourites too! Looking forward to listening, thanks! (I've grown fond of the tacky cover though haha) Nice to meet a fellow '69 Velvets fan! You'll see on my alternate cover that I've retained half of the front of the tacky cover. I think this was from a late '70s Spanish reissue. It ...

Re: 1969 Live With Lou Reed private remaster

All - you’re welcome and glad you like it! 1969 is my second-favorite Velvets album after the third album. I love all their work of course but what they were up to all throughout 1969 (the year) is special to me. I do think the cover is awful though, so my choice of alternate cover is somewhat of a ...

1969 Live With Lou Reed private remaster

I've finally completed a project I've wanted to do since The Complete Matrix Tapes were released two years ago. Using that 4xCD box set and the Live at the End of Cole Avenue bootleg CDs, I've reconstructed 1969: Velvet Underground Live With Lou Reed with the best materials available. In the spirit ...

Re: 1969

Ugh, why does this happen so often with new vinyl these days? I've heard that the sudden 'hipness' of vinyl pressings has caused quality control to go out the window - they're just pumping out vinyl discs as quickly as possible, which means that a high percentage of them come out warped (due to not...

Re: 1969

Got this tonight as a Christmas present, and I've got some issues with it. First off, it's very quiet. What's the opposite of brickwalling? Usually the volume knob on my receiver is set to about 3/8'ths of the way up when listening to vinyl (a little between 1/4 and 1/2 the way up). I have to turn t...
