Velvet Underground - "and so on..."



Here's the second LP treat, this time from 1982, another Australian bootleg of (at the time) previously unreleased material!
More rare gems here for the VU fanatic that as far as I know don't appear anywhere else:
Pale Blue Eyes — this version is my favourite VU song of all, with completely different lyrics to the officially released recordings. Recorded October 2, 1968 at La Cave...
Radio Ad — an amusing promo for their 3rd album
Loop — controlled distortion and feedback looped in the minimalist tradition of Terry Riley et al.
From the liner notes:
"Loop" first appeared as a flexi-disc enclosed in Aspen magazine, in the issue dated December 1966. Aspen was a sort of multi-media magazine, all sorts of things — usually with a common theme — enclosed in a decorative box. Volume one, issue three was coedited by David Dalton and Andy Warhol. It included, besides "Loop," an article by Lou Reed appraising the state of pop radio of the day. The "songwriting" credit on "Loop" went to John Cale, making it the only thing the V.U. ever released that Lou did not have a hand in writing. In fact, Cale is the only person playing on "Loop."

As per the previous post, this LP was issued in mono and many of the other tracks appear on official releases with superior sound quality, although some sound to me like alternative mixes. Again I've included them here for the sake of completeness. Full and detailed liner notes (this time by "Philip Milstein, Editor, What Goes On magazine, President, Velvet Underground Appreciation Society") included.
