Hi folks I wasn't happy with the PDF Archive site on which I posted some old cuttings so I have put the next batch on a mail-based cloud share. It should show you a list from which you can pick and choose. https://c.mail.com/peterz1970@mail.com/qiPlhy8OTyGfwdvJIhCmBA There's a mixed bunch of good, b...

The actual title is Bull Tongue Review, but I'll call it Dung if I want to!

Re: Sally Can't Dance No More

Thanks for the gems about Ride Sally Ride. I'd read all that stuff on the net of course ... it's just that I thought Sally Can't Dance was released in 1984, ten years too late, when it would have made sense. My dotage approaches and I have nowhere to hide.

Re: Sally Can't Dance No More

I have often wondered whether "Ride Sally Ride" was meant as a tribute to Sally Ride.

Any ideas anyone?

Cheers Phil, I guess I'll save my pennies, or buy beer.

ps: What is Bull Dung Review? I have not encountered it before. I'd guess it's a magazine or site to expose sub-standard writing & artistry.

An abridged version is being broadcast in UK by Radio Four, 5 episodes each 15 minutes long, starting 13:45 on 27th November (and repeated at 00:30) or you can use the catch-up service (UK only I think). There's also a 2015 bio by Aidan Levy - "Dirty Blvd.: The Life and Music of Lou Reed" ...

Re: 50th Anniversary

Poor research from the Guardian writer assigned to the job. Well spotted, I missed that. Cale was persuaded to return to Ludlow Street by the Wall Street Journal in 2013 (back in the pink hair days). http://www.boweryboogie.com/2013/10/ludlow-apartment-lou-reed-john-cale-formed-velvet-underground/
