Re: VU Masters?

Yes, he did say that. I also feel that he’s probably afraid of the tapes getting damaged. They’re almost at the rnd of their shelf lives, so they’re certainly very fragile. There's only one thing to do with fragile tapes and that's get them sorted out, baked (if needed*) and digitised. They can onl...

there’s a story that John is too afraid to take most of his stuff out of the archives.
what's he afraid of?
From I remember him saying, it was just that he'd had enough of the whole VU archive re-issue subject, like he doesn't think its worth dredging up more stuff.

Re: VU Masters?

The Verve fire occurred separately from the UMG one, and nothing in the vaults survived. It also happened very recently. Unless Cale got a hold of the multitracks (which he very well might have), they were without a doubt destroyed. Part of the tragedy of this loss (if it happened) is that there we...

Re: VU Masters?

Where did I read about the UMG tapes being stored in London at some point in their recent history?

Re: Favourite Cale-Era Bootlegs

The single sided LP I have sounds pretty bad. Very muffled, like it has been recorded in a cinema auditorium on a mic. Is that the same as your recording? It's a bit annoying to listen to Pope Ondine talking whilst the music plays, but the music is much clearer on the Raro DVD I reckon it is. It's ...

Re: Favourite Cale-Era Bootlegs

Is the best version of the 'Nico Crying Reel' music from the Raro DVD? It suffers with the bleed through of Ondine's overlapping monologue. The most complete version is from a single screen version that I obtained on dvdr a long while back. Unfortunately, like the Raro Video dvd, it cuts the exit m...
