I received an invitation to this, the opening of the 1990 Warhol Exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Jouy-en-Josas, but couldn't go because I was financially embarrassed. I've been kicking myself ever since.

I had seen several of the "Songs For Drella" shows in New York in December 1989, and just assumed that this would be more of the same - I never dreamed that Moe and Sterling would also be present.

This show was reviewed extensively at the time so I dont think there's anything I can usefully add now. It was, of course, the first time that Lou, John, Sterling and Moe had shared a stage since September 1968. Their impromptu rendition of "Heroin" is a little ragged, but the old VU chemistry is still there. John's viola playing is particularly good - at one point it sounds as if there's an aircraft taking off!

The Raven managed to capture an excellent recording of the entire proceedings. There's a little audience noise but it's not at all obtrusive. None of the "songs" performed at the soundcheck are complete - mostly Lou and John are just doodling around to set the levels. (Lou keeps returning to the riff for "Turn To Me", for some reason....). I've tried to chop up the soundcheck sensibly into "tracks" - the whole thing fits nicely onto 1 CDR.

Scans included with torrent files:

1: Invitation to the opening of the Warhol Exhibition at Jouy-en-Josas
2: Programme for Warhol Exhibition at Jouy-en-Josas
3: Fondation Cartier Press Release for Warhol Exhibition at Jouy-en-Josas

5. Letter from Fondation Cartier requesting material for display at Warhol Exhibition
6. CD artwork (2 different versions)

RIP Lou Reed and Sterling Morrison
