I would have thought that they'd have access to original tapes, and I'm sure they would let everyone know about that.
Oh, definitely this. No question this is a bootleg.

I don't want to read ANY author's opinion of whether an album is good/bad - especially in the context of a non-fiction book. Let music critics worry about that.

Re: Dead Straight Guide To Velvet Underground And Lou Reed

Thanks for the link! I do like how he's up front and honest, explaining that he's essentially compiling all the known info out there and adding on a bit at the end.

It had the extras, and so suggests that the LP might be speed corrected, too.
Wow, TONS of bootleg stuff in the "Customers Also Bought These Albums" section for me!

Re: William Kermit Smith

Fascinating propositions all, but not one of them came to fruition. I don't believe they made it to Expo '67, they sure never did the Sullivan show, didn't make it to Europe until after Reed was gone, and never got to work with Gomelsky. Perhaps the group was paying their publicist with dope, and h...
