Re: New Bataclan edition

Finally got a response from Pledgemusic We're told that this product is officially licensed by Red River Exports and that all necessary royalties have been paid. PledgeMusic, as the retailer, acts in good faith that all licenses have been obtained and royalties are being paid. Should we ever be made...

Re: All Tomorrow's Parties Demos Synced

These things are always interesting and lead you down rabbit holes of all sorts of fan-made weirdness

Re: New Bataclan edition

I contacted Pledgemusic and asked if this is official Lou Reed product and if the people producing it owned all the rights (pointed out that this has never been officially released but bootlegged dozens of times) They said they'd get back to me, but nothing yet. It's an interesting business model if...

Re: New Bataclan edition

Isn't this a vinyl re-gurgitating of this: https://www.amazon.com/Bataclan-Pitch-Corrected-Remastered-tracks/dp/B00I1R4U9Q It had the extras, and so suggests that the LP might be speed corrected, too. I'm intrigued as to how official this Pledgemusic version is - given that all the releases of this...

Re: VU Photo Thread

You’d think if Mo wasn’t there at all then someone would have remembered it was Mo-less gig? You can see drums stacked at the back, which you'd think they wouldn’t have bothered loading in if Mo wasn’t there. From the chord shapes that Lou and Sterl are holding I’d say they are doing I’ll Be Your Mi...

Re: Yardbirds version of IWFTM

The original Youtube video at the start of this thread has been removed, but Dangerous Minds have done an article on this cover version which includes a new Youtube video (albeit with the bootleg audio sync'ed to a different Yardbirds performance) http://dangerousminds.net/comments/jimmy_page_and_th...

Re: Billy Name interview 'Cale quit the VU'

To be fair Lou was never that keen to discuss it - even in interviews like this one where he seemed pretty at ease and answered a ton of the usual questions with good grace http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-10-29/interview-lou-reed-on-the-velvets-bowie-and-his-love-of-heavy-metal How did the friction...
