50th Anniversary - but when?

Long time no hear... Doesn't it seem odd that here we are coming up to the 50th anniversary of our beloved band's debut album and after 50 years, no one know exactly when it was released? All we have to go on is 'March 1967'. I would have thought that someone by now would have dug deep into the Verv...

VU&N and the Billboard charts

Much to my surprise today - in a discussion on Blonde On Blonde of all things - I found out that the Billboard LP chart didn't become at top 200 until May 13th 1967 (it was a 175 before then). The VU&N debuted in the chart that week at 199. Now given that our beloved album was released 2 months earl...

Bataclan '72 in colour?

Ok, so Brian Eno's Twitter account has just posted this: https://vimeo.com/146410460 I remember a while ago on the VU Webpage it mentioned there was an alternate colour version of the same live footage that's been around for years. Could this clip be from that rare source? I'm not convinced myself. ...

Re: The Matrix Tapes - COMING SOON

Sort of disappointed there isn't any 'new' songs here but this looks good. A 14 min take on IWFTM? I'm in!

Re: New Early Lou LP

I suppose these will now be legit given that the 50 years is almost up on the copyright for these tracks. Would like to see a more comprehensive set of Lou-related Pickwick tracks if anyone out there is looking to take advantage of these now being PD. :)

Re: VU Documentaries

I'd go for The South Bank Show from 1985 (on Youtube) and follow it up with The Velvet Underground Under Review (which is still available out there). The latter is important as Doug Yule is carefully excised out of nearly all VU docus or potted histories on TV, here he gets a decent amount of time t...

Re: 3rd Album Deluxe - Bill Levenson drops a hint?

Yep, I've vented my disappointment already on the Hoffman forum. This is a real disappointment....a let down....so much that could have been used and instead we get 2014 mixes plus a fake mono mix....hmm...perhaps no-one listens to us real fans...enough to make me glad my 33 1/3 was rejected...only ...

Well, Oliver needs to update his website as he still has it on his 'lost songs' list.... :?
