Re: A Day of Listening at the Lincoln Center Library

Most likely from John Cale starting to get his hands on the music. For sure! My point is, though we have these "Reed/Cale" demos, they are all about Lou. Yes, Cale is there, but still very much in a supporting role. We still don't have that much in-between this and the fully realized masterpieces o...

Re: A Day of Listening at the Lincoln Center Library

Thanks again, great work. What an amazing find if that is actually Electra on tape with John and Lou!

Questions: So would you say LA Bars is a different song for NY Stars? Different vocal melody? Or just the same song with different lyrics?

Re: A Day of Listening at the Lincoln Center Library

Very interesting about PB Eyes. I had been wondering if the 'the fact that you are married' lyric was in there. Knowing the date of when Shelley Albin gets married might help with the dating of the rewritten lyrics.
Many thanks again!

Re: A Day of Listening at the Lincoln Center Library

Funny, I'm just listening to the live version of Foggy Notion from December 12, 1968 now as I'm reading this and Lou sings "Sally Mae, ride ride ride". I don't his he does that on any other version.

Are there any other songs in the 'Everyone Knows' section? Unnamed songs or anything?

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

I'm just dying to go and make some notes, old fashioned style with pencil and paper(A recording would be great of course). I figured someone might have gone and done that by now, make notes. Either way, I figure I'll have to go before the end of 2019, hopefully much sooner. But how many days will a ...

Re: John Cale recorded five '3rd' album songs with VU?

It is true, if John was covering vocals for Lou and everyone else was switching instruments, wouldn't they play the songs they were most familiar with? But still they couldn't have been playing the Columbus setlist all year long, kind of surprised they were still playing a setlist like that by Nove...

Re: John Cale recorded five '3rd' album songs with VU?

The That’s The Story of My Life version with Cale on Viola is on Crawdaddy August 1968 issue (Inevitable pag 271) Most if not all the 3rd Album was composed while Cale was in the band. Also some of the songs recorded for the Lost Album: I Cant Stand it, Foggy Notion, Move Right In, Ride Into the Su...

Re: John Cale recorded five '3rd' album songs with VU?

Am I missing something? Doesn't Olivier have them in Chicago in February and April 68? If this is a Chicago setlist, one of those dates seems much the likelier for this set. Susan Pile even mentions them playing Booker T in April. Feb/April '68. You're right - any of these gigs is a contender for t...

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

great lists. I always considered that ALL the Pickwick songs were co-writen by the team - why do you think that Lou was the sole writer for some of them? I've got all of the "known" Pickwick vinyl issues - where writer's credits are given, it's always the whole team who get the credit. I suppose th...
