Re: Half-speed mastered vinyl now emerging

Boy they never stop! I have been storing my whole Lou/VU collection for the past 7 years in 3rd floor climate controlled storage because I’m terrified of hurricanes! I was rescued once and I am getting ready to let Mike Kostek sell most of my collection. The last thing I want to do is add new remas...

Re: "Linger On The Velvet Underground: Legend, Truth, Interviews"

Oh interesting. Nice to see a new book from Mr Julià. I like the way they've tied the design in with the film, by using the same font. I think that font they used in film and on the poster really works. But did I see a lack of Doug Yule's name in there? Seems like this may create some more dissent a...

Re: Candy Says performance in Haynes documentary

Leamanc, Yes i like the lou reed video. Of course he could be just ordering a take-away :) The live footage. Is this the new unseen footage that had been mentioned on the forum? I thought it was described as video when it was mentioned before, but i do not recall exactly what the footage looked like...

Re: Todd Haynes docu announcement

Lookjng forward to viewing this. Sadly I doubt it will be playing in the theater near me. Re BADS there is a recording of it at the Matrix in SF on the Matrix release. Yule era sadly, so no Cale. Is that what you heard? Yes. I forgot about that one. Not sure I don't recall recognising the tune at a...

Re: Todd Haynes docu announcement

I very much enjoyed the film. I didn't think it would be as good as it was. I cannot think anyone could have done better than Haynes has done. Very stylish but also a very strong multi-threaded narrative drive. Quite emotional at the end as things fall apart. And then right at the end, there's a ver...

Half-speed mastered vinyl now emerging

After a clutch of weird 'only-in-greece' half-speed Abbey Road masters of a year or two back that everyone was so suspicious about, these pressings (all three MGM/Verve albums) are now due out later in October : Here's the WLWH one on UMG site https://shop.udiscovermusic.com/products/the-velvet-unde...

Re: Lou Reed 1971 Dunbar Acetate?

I don’t know, but most of the snippets seemed to be taken from the albums. A couple of new live recordings of familiar songs performed in the 1969/70 era are really going to be overshadowed by the Matrix Tapes these days. I’m afraid that I can’t see this acetate making any great waves. I may be wron...

Re: Lou Reed 1971 Dunbar Acetate?

£10,000 for otherwise available recordings of VU songs. Who would pay that? A very minor VU-related artefact, I would say.

Re: Todd Haynes docu announcement

So the film's out the coming month, and still no sign of any new archive material. I wonder if it will happen this year.

Re: VU Docu Film OST album announced

But the key thing is (well for me, that is), where is Doug? I hope this is not another docu where he is relegated to a minor role or seen as an irrelevance. I'll bet money that nobody even bothered to give him a call. By the way Doug Yule is in the film according to the cast list. https://www.imdb....
