Re: Little Sister live

This does kind of pose the question of why use WeTransfer or Dropbox for stuff like this when you can just upload to Mediafire or Google Drive and it stays there till you delete it.

I guess I'm being a bit churlish, obviously it's amazing full stop that we get to hear this stuff.

Re: Olivier's VU site

Nice to have him back!

All the stuff about the McMaster gig is new to me. I guess those lyrics were an improvisation from Melody Laughter / Nothing Song.

Re: Little Sister live

That's very cool. A bit more of a groove than the pummelling Gymnasium version. Thank you!

Olivier's VU site

Like most of us I'm sure, I've always (and by always, I mean for 25+ years) enjoyed checking into Olivier Landemaine's enyclopeadic VU website from time to time and seeing what new snippets have been added. However, the last few times I've done so, it's been in vain - it's not been updated since Nov...

Re: Bootleg with AI...

It's worth bearing in mind that it's a field that's advancing all the time at the moment. Of the off-the-peg online splitters, lalal.ai have just released a new algorithm for removing vocals and drums which to my mind is way ahead of anything else I've seen. Then there are the desktop based applicat...

Re: Little Sister live

Side thought: I'm beginning get the impression that late 1966 was maybe the peak of Nico's contribution to the band. As well as the Banana songs, we now know she was singing Little Sister on stage (and apparently Sunday Morning too), and contributing to the improvisations - there are even photos of ...

Re: Little Sister live

So does Unterberger give much detail on what the rest of this show at... Morgantown... is like? Is it the full gig? How listenable is the rest of it? I'm guessing that as Little Sister is a fairly quiet song it doesn't suffer as badly from the distortion as some of the others?

Re: Little Sister live

Right, the one discussed here - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=146158&p=180140

I'd forgotten about that!

Hopefully this means the rest of the recording is on the way.

Re: Little Sister live

Wow. Did not see that coming. First thought was that it might be from one of Nico's early solo shows at the Dom, but it does seem to be the full band. Presumably the line-up is: Nico - vocal Cale - piano Reed - guitar (is there just one guitar??) Sterling - bass Moe - drums Recording very overdriven...
