Re: New Bootleg : at the factory

Hi Mark - yeah I did that transfer, I'm pretty sure I shared it here but can do so again if you missed it. I don't know if there's been an official DVD issue since... My capture might even be the source of these boots, it will be easy to identify because I cut off a few minutes of the shuffling and ...

Re: New Bootleg : at the factory

Re: 2009 Rizzoli promo 45 We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together / If You Close The Door

it's the same record as came with the book, but with a different sleeve, or a generic plain sleeve - they were apparently given away at promotional events for the book. The best that discogs can come up with is that 'some copies' had the 3-colour screen-printed cover. I'd had it on my want list for ...

2009 Rizzoli promo 45 We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together / If You Close The Door

Hi all I just got one of these on discogs, but without the pic sleeve. NM / $15. Who else has it? It's allegedly a ltd edition of 100, but that's highly unlikely. Has the sleeve got any text or anything? There's only one photo on the release page - https://img.discogs.com/fCDnl-augUI2ezQDoytXNy89Szg...

Re: Airing of 'Waiting' 65 demo on 'Walking the Wild Mind' BBC R4

A million miles from the VU. Thanks Olivier! It's pretty close to a slower version of the acoustic demo on disc 1 of PSAS, minus the viola, so it's a stage in the development of the VU. He harmony is just like the one Cale does on the July tape: they grew massively by the end of 1965! What was more...

Re: VU&N UK pressing oddity

Haha! Gordon, I was relying on you to sort this one out ;)
My copy also has the uk sticker on the back torn off so that's no help. But having 'Copyright Control' instead of of a real publisher does suggest earlier. It's not really exciting, but it *is* odd.

Re: VU&N UK pressing oddity

Alfredo's book has various reviews from Sept/Oct 1971 for the VU and Chelsea Girl reissues - one of them says they are result of a new distribution deal between Polydor and MGM, so that seems to be the time frame that the copies of VU&N in the US sleeves, as the peelable banana is mentioned in some ...

Re: VU&N UK pressing oddity

Nothing logical in this thread - I assumed the mistake was because it was the first pressing of the reissue, but 11 1 and 12 1 would have to be earlier than mine (11 5 and 12 2). So - could there really be 3 or 4 pressings which came in US sleeves? That seems strange. One theory might be that the al...
