Aquarium Drunkard recently posted a Velvet Underground show from January 10, 1969. Exactly fifty years ago today. Man, the shit just keeps coming. Amazing that there's still stuff popping up all these years later. So, I went looking for some more VU meat and found a handful of different mixes from a pre-release acetate of the first LP. Posted here some time back, a little scratchy, but it you're a VU fiend probably no more scratchy then your worn out copy of the first LP, plus it's different mixes. All of this is probably only of interest to someone who's into the Velvets. Fuck it, I'm not going to rationalize things. I'm going to go listen to some alternate versions I've heard a dozen times, of songs that I've heard a hundred times.
