Certainly not the original one.
It looks like a company was actually set up four months ago with MC Kostek as head

Re: Uncut - 'Ultimate Music Guide' magazine

Jonathan Richman writes, in the magazine, that he saw John Cale’s last gig with the VU. He also says that he knew it was Cale’s last gig. That would mean that Cale played a gig (or even some gigs), after he was ousted. Is that likely, or possible? I believe the date of the gig is stated as 28 Sept. ...

Is it even possible that the original VUAS is behind these? Nice artwork: https://www.discogs.com/release/20950972-The-Velvet-Underground-Im-Not-A-Young-Man-Anymore-Live-At-The-Gymnasium-New-York-City-April-30-1967 https://www.discogs.com/release/20950591-The-Velvet-Underground-Melody-Laughter-Live-...

Two new double LP boots of ‘1966’ and ‘Gymnasium’

ValleyDale and Gymnasium get new double LP releases. Lord to 300. Nice artwork. Various (probably unfounded) claims about using new sources of tapes. Live 66 improvs are only 23 mins, so claim that they are unedited seems uncredible. They use the ‘VUAS’ label for these releases. https://www.forcedex...

Re: Uncut - 'Ultimate Music Guide' magazine

I wouldn't mind if the article on the documentary ('In Full' as they probably incautiously describe it) explained exactly where all the suspect audio snippets were from. Of course if they explained what UMG are up to with VU archive material that would be even better. I see they've got Jonathnan Ric...

Re: Coney Island Steeplechase remix

@Mark thanks for posting this I enjoyed it. I think you did a good job. With regards the bass, I think it's a bit over-accentuated on many of the '69 remixes/remasters anyway. My theory is that the vocal effect was added in the 60s, but that they kept the raw vocal, too. I can't see that they would ...

A Cale fan on the Unauthorized facebook group page has a copy of the half speed WL/WH with different matrix to the one on discogs
ignore, she got the banana matrix and wl/wh mixed up!
That makes sense, as there are no WLWH matrices on Discogs for this pressing.

Re: White Light / White Heat versions

there are a few sites all linked to universal including "Sound of Vinyl", "Recordstore UK" and "Udiscover" probably the abbey road site too (which has 10% off first orders.

WL/WH didn't arrive now lodged a notice with universal for a refund/replacement. I don't recommend Sound of Vinyl UK
I just bought mine direct from the Universal store. Came a couple of days later.
