Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

Well whatever the reason and mechanism, 6 of the 7 tracks were transferred to disc at some point, as evidenced by various sources and the photo of Sterl's acetate on p.131 of Unterberger's book. Unterberger gives a pretty detailed description of the tracks on p.130, and concludes that they could wel...

Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

Are we going with late 1965 as the date of that demo with Sheltered Life etc then? Personally I still think late 66/early 67 makes more sense... I've also always gone with the late 66/early 67 date. From memory the argument they were from late 65 stems from the fact they were supposedly recorded at...

Re: Chic Mystique mystery

It is interesting, and I've always assumed it was a melodica - certainly has that sound. I wondered if possibly Nico played it? If you can pick it a tune on a harmonium I figure you could pick one out on a melodica. That said, I've always found it impossible to decipher the actual instruments on Chi...

Re: Interview-article about the Lou Reed archive on please kill me

It implies these are solo pre-VU demos featuring just Lou - I think?

Re: Interview-article about the Lou Reed archive on please kill me

Wow, very interesting. I suspect that some of the 7 tracks are ones we are aware of - 'Never Get Emotionally Involved...', maybe 'Prominent Men' (as it's not a well known VU song), etc. - but it definitely looks like there will be some unknown stuff in there. Just hope it gets released soon!

Re: Transmission Impossible

If you scroll down to 3 Jan, apparently there is. http://olivier.landemaine.free.fr/vu/live/1965-66/perf6566.html I never really noticed that, before. A number of songs missing from all the CDs, even the original Warhol Exhibition CD. I wonder where that list came from? Some of those songs listed I...

Re: Transmission Impossible

I don't see any mention of the missing tracks? Looks like the same old in a different package. Looking for Men Of Good Fortune, Prominent Men and others. Now that would be an incredible find! Is there another recording of Prominent Men? If you scroll down to 3 Jan, apparently there is. http://olivi...

Re: Transmission Impossible

BTW Track 5 from the Factory rehearsal, which is always listed as Boom Boom, is actually Big Boss Man, a different but similar track.
