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

Well it did always seem to me a very strange set list for 1966. 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 ...

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

It seems the Pickwick song Put Your Money Down On The Tab, that was a known title but unconfirmed it Lou Reed was the main writer or just listed as a co-writer, is on the 11-song demo as 'Put Your Money Down'. Do you have a complete list of "possible" pickwick era songs? I remember scouring old des...

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

There is a mid-seventies show listed in the archive that contains performances of Chelsea Girls and It Was A Pleasure Then. I wonder if there could possibly be Lou vocals on those 2 renditions, or if they are something all together different. It seems unlikely to me that lou was singing these songs...

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

One other thing should be mentioned is the Hey Ho, I think, is really called Hey Ho Silver. It’s an early version of Its Just Too Much with different lyrics, as described by Lou Reed before a live version of IJTM.
Nice to talk to you guys about this by the way, i haven’t posted much before, cheers.

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

Also, That’s The Story Of My Life is a ‘factory’ song, using one of Billy Names sayings, so makes sense if it is from ‘66. ;)

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

Another point of interest: there exists an audience recording of Lou at the Bottom Line, usually dated May 1978, where the set list includes "Louie Louie" and a long, slow, almost spoken version of "Sister Ray" where Lou appears to be telling stories. That recording doesn't seem to be in his May 78...

Re: Lou Reed Papers, 1958-2015

so much interesting stuff! The following implies that Lou recorded "LA Bars" during the sessions for Sally. The (almost indecypherable) words for it are in his lyrics notebook from that period, along with other unreleased ditties such as "Was-Is-Been", "Relationships" and, oddly enough "Follow The ...

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

It's possible though I'm not aware of it. It's definitely a Cale ere setlist, it's in his hand, and it is written on paper from the restaurant down the street from Poor Richard's. There is also a Morrison interview where he confirms that 'Searching' was born as an instrumental during the Poor Richar...
