He very kindly lent me a VU tape about 10 years ago, which I managed to mislay and found recently. I sent him a private message on the forum to check his address so I cou...

Re: Piero Heliczer documentary available to stream

I used an IP plugin for Firefox that seemed to do the job. Just get rid of it afterwards and wash your hands!

Piero Heliczer documentary available to stream

The Piero Heliczer documentary 'The Invisible Father', made by his daughter Therese, is streaming for the next few days as part of the Female Eye film festival.

Re: question about 3rd album songs

Well, they recorded a version Beginning to See the Light with Cale of course. And Pale Blue Eyes and What Goes On have both been anecdotally mentioned as being played with Cale in the summer of '68. And if - if - this listing from the NYPL Lou archive is accurate, they recorded most of the others wi...

Re: Original reel-to-reel recording from Second Fret up on eBay

Don't forget the May 1970 show is on the Loaded deluxe edition that came out a few years ago. Seem to remember the taper saying the quality of the transfer wasn't as good as the one done in the 90s for the never-released Bootleg Series.
