Re: unrecognized pic

Thanks, but that's a different kind of chair. Also, I don't see any reason to assume the photo is of anything other than the official performance. To be clear, I'm talking about the chair that the amp is on in both pictures, not the chair that Moe is sitting on in the unrecognized pic, which is ind...

Re: unrecognized pic

The chair that the amp on the right of the picture is sitting on looks like the chair that has an amp sitting on it in some photos from the Cinematheque. This one, for example:- https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/american-rock-band-the-velvet-underground-perform-at-the-news-photo/881906...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I've put the tape in the 1969 section because that's how it was "marketed" but I hope the write-up makes it clear the date is wrong. As for ISWY, that exemplifies the fact that some of these of tapes have tracklists that don't match the contents, with missing tracks that disappoint or extra stuff t...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

Thanks schnittselle, I'm glad you like it, and now there's more, I have added tapes with "1969" on the covers but some are from 1968. Yes it is a nice site. The "La Cave Cleveland 10.69" (actually 4th October '68) tape has exactly the same track listing as my copy from circa 1982, with the second W...

Re: Richie Unterberger on the making of White Light/White Heat*

I think the most convincing thing is the similarity between the songs on the 'july 68' tape and the other 3rd album sessions tape in the LR archive. Yes. I think you are right. At least I can now stop hoping for more Cale recordings! Yes. If you look at it in the full context of what's listed here,...

Re: Richie Unterberger on the making of White Light/White Heat*

Who knows? The text in the entry/on the tape could be incorrect. It could be a typo. I don't quite see why anyone would write the month in roman numerals followed by '4/68' – and then add July 68 afterwards (which is where all the dates are on those entries)? 'XII' could just be a tape number. Mayb...

But July 5 1968 ties in with their west coast dates. For example, it was at this time they played San Diego and LA.
There isn't a reference to the west coast (or anywhere else) in the archive listing for the tape though?

Re: Richie Unterberger on the making of White Light/White Heat*

Supposedly these are listed in the LR Archive. I can't remember how to get into the archive db to double-check. 1968 July 5 Jesus Pale Blue Eyes Beginning To See The Light Story Of My Life If You Close the Door [After Hours] It's here http://archives.nypl.org/mus/24078#c1534990 XII - 4/68 [Velvet U...

Re: Original reel-to-reel recording from Second Fret up on eBay

Well, I guess someone bought these tapes! https://aquariumdrunkard.com/2020/09/24/the-velvet-underground-the-second-fret-philadelphia-january-1970/ This stuff was all circulating and bootlegged years before the tapes went on eBay though. Is there anything to suggest the copy here or the new bootleg...
