Re: 50th Anniversary - but when?

Olivier has a link to Billboard listing it as being a new release in the 28 Jan issue, so if it missed its official release date (i think i read somewhere that the delay was partly due to complications with the cover) it probably isn't recorded what the actual date was... https://books.google.co.uk/...

Re: VU & Nico LP with missing 'Sunday Morning' track

I was v skeptical about this, but it appears to be legit. There are other instances in the 60s where the wrong takes or mixes made it onto the first pressings of higher profile LPs (eg Revolver and Highway 61 Revisited), but I don't remember any where a track was just missed off. The thing about the...

Re: VU on film

I saw the Danny Williams film at the BFI in a film festival, screening with the Walk Into The Sea doc - there are clips in the film, but the full film is great (but without sound) - I don't think it's been released in its own right - maybe there are rights issues as it's in the Warhol Museum collec...

Re: The Matrix Tapes - COMING SOON

I meant the SF Chronicle. This from Oliver's site: Announcement: in San Francisco Chronicle, Monday November 24, 1969: "At the Matrix, tonight through Wednesday : Velvet Underground, Mendlebaum.". That's what I'm wondering. If the 11/26-27 dates were written on all the tapes, some tapes, paperwork,...
