Chic Mystique mystery

The Velvet Underground never fails to intrigue and mystify. Does anyone know anything about the keyboard instrument that first gurgles into the improv brew of "Chic Mystique" at approx. 15:30, and arises to the surface at approx. 16:45? It sounds to my ears like, of all things, a melodica, yet I'm a...

Re: St. Marks Place—Is This America’s Coolest Street?

couple soundfiles of interest

I've taken the liberty of doing a cleanup of the soundtrack to Jonas Mekas's Chic Mystique film, the original of which is plagued with dropouts and electronic spikes. I think that my version makes for a much more enjoyable listen, and would like to share it with whomever is interested in hearing it....

Symphony survey

I'd like to get thoughts on the best available version of the Symphony Of Sound soundtrack, for fidelity, completeness and what-all else.
