Richie Unterberger on the making of White Light/White Heat*

*The book of that name, that is.

Dynamite Hemorrhage online has published my interview with Richie Unterberger about his wonderful, essential Velvet Underground day-by-day book:

yes that's a really interesting interview - thanks. I go back regularly to Richie's book, not just because it's a tremendous reference work, but because he often offered very pertinent and accurate insights as a background. I always wondered why Hans Onsager didn't appear - I don't believe that he has ever been interviewed about his work with the Velvets.

I bought the print copy when it first came out but have since sold it since I rarely re-read books.
I heard he's been adding more to the e-version. Does anyone who has owned both versions know if there's enough new content to make a re-purchase worth it?

There is quite a bit more in the ebook version.

Didn't Richie say there was something like 3 times the content in the eBook? He said a lot of people approached him after the book came out in print.

I haven't read either yet, though I have the printed book. At this point, I'll probably get the eBook and read that. It's not very expensive. The print edition is out of print, though.

On Amazon it says 40,000 words of new information.

I'm not clear how you get an eBook that is not tied to the amazon kindle system.
