Or did I get these from this forum in the first place?

thanks a lot for those - especially the review of the July 11th 69 show which I had read before, but which now drove me to go and listen again to the Professor's recording of that show. It puts the MC's introductory words nicely into context "...so for the last time on this stage...". Richard's review is, as usual, spot on, especially his very pertinent comments about Sterl and Moe and Doug. By then, it may well have been Lou's band, but it certainly wouldn't have been the Velvets without the other members.

Apropos that very recording - listening to it again I'm wondering if Doug and Lou are actually sharing the vocal duties on "Candy Says". Anyone else have a view on that? (the best example of Lou singing it alone is the recording of the Boston 12/12 68 performance, which is, I think, sublime)
