The Velvet Underground Web Page has moved

Postby olandem » 29 Oct 2008 23:42

AOL Hometown is closing its doors on October 31, so I had to move the site to another place.

Here it is: http://olivier.landemaine.free.fr/vu/index.html

May be still a few things to fix but overall it's working. Feel free to update your bookmarks.

Thanks.

Yes, thanks Oliver. I have gone to your site 2 or 3 times a week at least since you put the site up. It is a [i]TRUE[/i] labour of love and a credit to you. I know moving the entire site elsewhere was not an easy task and for you to take care of it even before the other site went down, well cudos to you my friend!

Far and away the best Velvet Underground resource in the world, period. It would be irreplaceable if lost. Thanks so much for everything that's gone into it.

Is there any chance that this recording will surface any time soon? And great to see the Velvet Underground page going strong.

BTW there are still links to your old site... :)

(Is there a chance that your site will ever have more detailed information about Squeeze? I really like "Louise". Yes, I know, it is not the "real" VU, but just for completion...)
What goes on in your mind?
