Re: New Bootleg Website in the Works

>01. Is the "Ride Into the Sun" (track 01) featured on Ride Into the Sun unique, or is it available on another release as well? The description kind of spins my head! one of the versions on the single doesn't appear anywhere else as far as I know/remember. I tried to contact Jamie Klimek through the...

Re: 1969

The cover is very very dull, but i will be happy to have these on vinyl also! I will listen to them as well. Will they have put any effort into the mastering? We can hope! When i was younger I sometimes pasted over covers I really didn't like with other /better pictures. This one is nearly in that b...

too weird: a cast of Lou's head for sale

http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/T~8AAOSwDiBZGCbG/s-l1600.jpg Yikes! This cast was originally made for a video in 1986, for No Money Down. Now some people are selling copies from the moulds for £75. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253014171696?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&fromMakeTrack=true https://youtu.b...

Re: "Todd Haynes to direct Velvet Underground documentary"

... i think it might be the Fugs? Warhol was pals with Ed Sanders at thw time and they were part of the same lower east side scene to the early VU.
Look at them in 1968 here and imagine them 2 yrs earlier https://youtu.be/ljxnEep6d-c

Re: Velvet's Fuzz Effects (again)

hi - haven't been by here for a while. Pretty sure it's all here somewhere. Info is mostly from the Up-tight book and Jamie Klimek's observations. Lou used the new-in-1966 Vox plugin devices Distortion Sustainer and Repeat Percussuion (a choppy trem), that he (or maybe Dan Armstrong) stuck inside a ...

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...
