short home movie VU live 1969

Post by mangue » 03 Mar 2019 12:28

Just found a short home movie with the VU live in 1969 [no sound] and don't remember this having been mentioned here before.

Home movie "The Tincher Family Collection, No.5 - Music Festivals and Travel", including
04:20 - 1969.Oct.15, Vietnam Moratorium Day at Winfrey Point on White Rock Lake, Dallas [ca.4min]
07:45 - VU appears, whole band shown, mostly focusing on Moe [30sec]
(to know which song they play, anybody here can read Lou's lips?)

video player at https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531 ... 1/#track/1
full description of video (most non-VU) at https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth1061089/

Curious this is exactly the outdoor performance pictured in the VU 3rd booklet [page 52/53], I have commented about here earlier.

That is surely the best colour footage of the VU I have ever seen!

Amazing stuff, great to see the VU in decent quality colour. Moe seems to have attracted more attention than the guys, she looks great pounding away at the kit!
