Re:

supposedly the rest of that Sister Ray was accidentally/inadvertently deleted by Jamie's sister? What about the Sister Ray that follows SSR. We get the first few bars and then it fades out. Did the tape-recorder run out?(unlikely, as it did fade out). OL's web site also hints somewhere that Klimek h...

Re: Sweet Sister Ray

Janie Klimek's brother is on Twitter/X, and posted in response to a question from me that "everything was already available" on bootlegs. I suggested to him that it wasn't, and asked after his brother. He never responded....

Re: Velvet Underground Scrapbook

sorry about the delay. I also have this and I'm pretty sure it dates from the mid-1990s. I never heard of or saw a "Volume 2". For some reason I always assumed that it was a UK-produced item, but not sure why. I'm 100% sure I got it via an ad in a UK publication though. I recently came across a copy...

Re: VELVET UNDERGROUND - 1969-10-19: Live at the End of Cole Ave (remix)

I must have unwittingly, somehow accidentally typed into the password field while zipping it the second time with 7-zip for the re-upload, as it asked for the password for me too. (Note to self: always test such a zip file before uploading.) Please try again with this re-re-upload link: https://we....

Re: VELVET UNDERGROUND - 1969-10-19: Live at the End of Cole Ave (remix)

Any chance of the link being re-posted? I unfortunately missed it. I obviously have all the source material but it would be nice to hear a more balanced version. I was the one who originally alerted Guido to the existence of these fine recordings - we were in NY together and I played him a cassette ...

Re: EPI Interview by Studs Terkel, 23rd June 1966

Thanks Gordon That was interesting, though probably Studs Terkel's befuddled questions were probably more interesting than their answers. His manner is surprisingly formal, but maybe that's tongue-in-cheek? Hard to tell. Sometimes you get the impression they're trying to give him genuine answers, b...

EPI Interview by Studs Terkel, 23rd June 1966

I don't think that this interview is widely known about - Studs interviews members of the EPI (Sterling, Gerard, Ingrid Superstar, Paul Morrissey and Steve Seznick (!)) on 23rd June 1966. Obviously during the stay at Poor Richards. It is 41 minutes long and very interesting. Pity John wasn't there.....

Re: Tea Party Tapes? Warhol reel? Any news?

As for the Boston tapes Norton did actually say that they had some unreleased stuff but I'll believe when I see it. If they suceed I'm hoping their example will be they way forward, ie smaller labels negotiating with Universal (and tape owners?) to release the rest of the scrapped Bootleg series an...

Re: Tea Party Tapes? Warhol reel? Any news?

I am interested in the potential Boston tapes release, even if only to get the suggested contextual information about their recording. I doubt that there will be any new music on them and quality is unlikely to be significantly better than what we already have. I'm much less interested in the Dolph ...
