Re: Looking for live footage from Lou '76 show

Yeah i think we're all looking for the rest of that footage. You can find "Wild Side" from (maybe) the same show on youtube but the rest of it.....
I think it was Mick Rock who filmed the 76 tour, probably multiple shows.

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I visited Edinburgh record fairs from 1980 onwards ... Great, I'm not the only one who remembers these things. But what is Goldmine and what is Enrique's Web page? Forgive my ignorance. Goldmine was/is(?) the US equivalent of the UK "Record Collector" magazine, although it leant more towards classi...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I visited Edinburgh record fairs from 1980 onwards and picked up a fair number of live lou Reed / vu cassettes. But to be be honest I got more by trading. I used to run a wanted ad in Goldmine every few months and made a lot of trading contacts that way. The "live and alive" section of Enrique's Web...

Re: JC on WPIX, June '79: Fever In My Pocket

I dug out my old cassette of this - ol' Captain Beaky's "guest DJ" appearance on WPIX FM on 3rd June 1979. It looks to be about 40 min long so I'm not sure if it's the whole show or not. Immediately prior to the VU track, the DJs and John are talking about cueing up a song ("Kidnapped" by The Resist...

Re: The Velvet Underground Documentary - Call to Fans

it may well have been me who originally floated the idea and if it was, it was pure speculation on my part... That’s a very common misconception... Actually it's not, it's just an idea someone on this board floated, that we talked about for a short while. Nobody claimed they'd solved the mystery. I ...

Re: Complete list of Velvets Footage?

I don't have the photos to hand to confirm but I seem to remember that some of the photos shot at the cafe bizarre in 1965 show barbera rubin holding a movie camera? Anyone else remember that?

Re: VU in Dallas 1969 with sound...

just watching that footage again I'm struck by the simplicity (naivity?) of the whole situation back in 1969. those folks weren't to know that they'd have another 5 or 6 years of Vietnam, Nixon/Watergate, Carter/Iran, Reagan, then the 90s, Iraq 1 and Iraq 2, etc etc. The whole world seemed a lot sim...

Re: VU in Dallas 1969 with sound...

Great find! I have long wondered if this footage still existed after I saw the still shot of Sterling being interviewed on film in Doug Yule's book of 1969 photos! Even better that the camera also captured them on stage. If only he/she'd filmed for a bit longer....
