Re: VU Masters?

Hi HA - i just wanted to clarify that I'm not just trying to trash you, I'm pointing out some inconsistencies with what you think is going on. You've assumed that the contract was for the completed album, but it was for the band to record an album or six 45s. It happened that some of those sides had...

The con...

Re: VU Masters?

On the VU&N Super Deluxe we have new stereo mixes of the Scepter Heroin and European Son. Guess I'm Falling in Love is a WL/WH session outtake and has been mixed twice since the '80s.

Re: VU Masters?

You mean the original multi-track tapes? those are long gone. UMG still have the master tapes of the albums (the finished products) as far as i know. They wouldn't give them away under any circumstances. here's one (img saved from the Sundazed mini site for their mono box set) - https://live.staticf...

Re: Noise and the East Village Other LP

if you separate the two channels into separate tracks, invert one and then join them back together the result is one mono track, what we would need is more sophisticated - take away where the two tracks overlap but keep what's left of the two tracks.

Re: Cale-Era Concert Tape Recovery?

Klimek's band Mirrors also recorded a song that is basically GIFIL, called Hands In My Pockets, so he had that too. You could try contacting him via Michael Weldon (Psychotronic Video) - he was the drummer in Mirrors. Various people (me included) have asked him about Klimek and the tapes over the ye...
