John Cale recorded five '3rd' album songs with VU?

This is possibly quite amazing. Over at Steve Hoffman, member syscrusher just spotted that a Lou Reed Archive tape with '3rd' albums songs in the archive is dated July 1968. If true that is five '3rd' album songs played with John Cale. And makes me wonder whether the date of Beginning To See The Lig...

Re: Maxine Peake to play Nico

Thank-you for the news. I was hoping for Claudia Winkleman.

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

It's an odd one. The introductory text to the live tapes section specifically states that the earliest material is from 1966, while the list begins at Dec 1968. It could be that Lou's archive included material that has already been commercially exploited (Columbus 66 for example) and has not been l...

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

incredible. Here's a few things I spotted Demos: Quite a few songs on early demo tapes we have not heard (or heard of). A whole tape of demos with Cale from 1966 including: Men of Good Fortune Put Your Money Down Walk Alone Too Late Pale Blue Eyes (1966!) Stockpile Buzz Buzz Buzz Put Your Money Down...

Re: VU&N UK pressing oddity

I have another UK pressing. It was the first VU I bought and it was in the racks around the time when Transformer came out, as it was the next thing I bought. That UK copy already had the UK sleeve – non-peelable, and where the LP opening is in the front of the gatefold. Thinner standard Uk sleeve c...

Re: VU&N UK pressing oddity

Simon, that is curious and an interesting discovery. I just checked my early UK pressing and the label is as normal. The matrix is similar but my matrices end ▽ 420 11 1 and ▽ 420 11 2 on either side. And should we assume that '11 2' means it's earlier than yours which is '12 2' ? My cover is the sa...

Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

No, it was There She Goes Again that was originally written for Nico to sing, not Here She Comes Now . (Check your RS source again.) And again, it is There She Goes Again that Nico sang live – as captured on the Warhol Rehearsal tapes. Well read point 5.“Here She Comes Now” was originally written t...

Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

If I recall correctly, they played TSGA at their first "official" concert at that high school in NJ in Nov 1965, right? Yes, TSGA is on the setlist for the Summit High School gig in NJ in early December 1965. You are both correct. Summit High. December 11th 1965. Around two weeks before Andy gave t...

Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

There She Goes Again may have been sung by Nico live, though I’m pretty sure she never tried singing that song again after the initial rehearsal, but it certainly wasn’t written FOR her. It is a 1965 song that predates the meeting of the VU Warhol and Nico. Here She Comes Now on the other hand seem...

Re: Prominent Men: Early Demos

Broom St. demos In Nov '66 we have setlists that show they were not doing any of this material, so the mod-wedding connection seems a little bit speculative. As I commented first, the by me suggested relation between Broom ST. demos (especialy "Here She Comes Now") and the mod-wedding is purely my ...
