Re: 3rd album cover what-if

Personally I love this idea. I like illustrations generally and this one is really cute. I think Lou said something to the effect of, how did you know we were just kids playing music? Which is, well, not really the whole story, but it does kinda fit this album. The actual album cover is okay but not...

Re: A Day of Listening at the Lincoln Center Library

I can’t remember where I heard it (either here or another forum or Facebook) but I thought the record labels are trying to claim various recordings in the archive and that is making any releases difficult.

Re: Lou Reed Archives Poll

I voted ‘Buttercup’ but only because that’s the only one I have heard of before, but I definitely want to hear all early / VU era stuff. Like every second. Please someone leak or release it to us :cry:

Re: White Light/White Heat and The Ambassadors: Two skulls

Oh cool nice catch! I think the story behind the album cover is Lou picked out a frame from one of Warhol’s movies and zoomed in on the tattoo. Andy suggested printing it black on black. Having studied art maybe he knew of the painting. Or was just being mischievous.

Re: VU Masters?

I thought the Matrix Tapes came out after the venue agreed to it or something like that, I don't think it was in Lou's archives or had anything directly to do with him? I can't tell from Lou's archives if any of the recordings are master tapes (haven't gone in person, just looked at the online listi...

Re: VU Masters?

The recent article about the UMG fire (I really recommend the article if you haven't read it, its fascinating although depressing) does say Verve stuff was lost. There is a big list of bands and artists whose masters were burned but the Velvet Underground (and Lou and Cale) are not explicitly mentio...

Re: A Day of Listening at the Lincoln Center Library

Thanks for sharing your notes!
For the piano tracks, do you think they were Lou or Cale playing? I assumed piano stuff would be Cale, but you said Lou played some songs on piano so now I wonder.

Re: 12 string

Oh cool I've never seen that pic. I was meaning to get that book but forgot about it. Anyway I remember reading Lou and Sterling got 12-string guitars for the third album so I would guess a song off that? Maybe like I'm Set Free or something.

Re: VU exhibition NYC

Is this a good exhibition? Like good enough to justify travelling to New York to see it? I'm tempted but it would be expensive...
