Re: Pleasure Then

Maybe this is a threadjack, but does anyone else think that the bleakness of Nico's lyrics (here and elsewhere) stem from "The Last Mile"?

all 3 session list as personnel: Nico, vocals; and others
my note: unfortunately no further details
Could that vocal have been dubbed on afterwards? Nico famously hated the flute that was added to Chelseas Girls.

From the booklet "VU & Nico - 45th Anniversary Edition":

The rumbling and squawking guitars are distinctly Velvetian, providing the sole backing for Nico's vocals.
Surely Cale's viola lends its voice to the drone ... does anyone else hear it? But that's a good find mangue.

Re: The Velvet Underground Jokes thread

When Nico parted company with the Velvets, the boys assumed all the vocals. John sang with a sonorous tenor, but Lou's voice was reedy.

Re: Pleasure Then

I don't think the weaving voice is actually falsetto, more likely a soprano vocalisation (and the way it rises and falls reminds me of Allegri's "Miserere me, Deus" although the two pieces are worlds apart). All that technical information about voice types in the link has given rise to a truly awful...

Is anyone still alive who might know? Cale?
Maybe someone from this tribute show?

Re: Velvets in Sheldon Renan book '67

A lightbulb moment ... I have reduced the original images to the text page only, so it will take longer to reach the daily download limit.

Re: Velvets in Sheldon Renan book '67

Sorry folks, the image hosting site has a daily download bandwidth and the bots that trawl this site probably use it all up. This means that none of my posted images, neither sacred nor profane, can currently be viewed. You can download a substitute pdf from my press cuttings share site, https://c.m...

Velvets in Sheldon Renan book '67

Here are two scans from the Sheldon Renan book "An Introduction to the American Underground Film" (but called "the underground film", without capitals, in UK). https://www.keepandshare.com/doc/8250239/renanvu-0000-jpg-3-2-meg?da=y https://www.keepandshare.com/doc/8250238/renanvu-0001-jpg-3-5-meg?da=...
