Fantastic or what?
one of the best purchases I EVER MADE. Makes me cry everytime i listen to it. Brilliant.
WHO ON EARTH do we have to petition to get the DVD of the original NY show released i wonder?
when you start arguing with yourself.
When you get there you should go and have a little lie down.
but for what it's worth in the past 43 years I've bought all the VU albums plus six or seven Lou Reed albums (it may be more, I can't bothered to go and count them) and four or five John Cale albums. My favourites are probably the third VU album, Paris 1919, Berlin and Fragments of a Rainy Season. I'm not that mad on Songs for Drella (I've always thought Andy Warhol is the least interesting thing about the VU).
I don't know (or care) how acceptably indie that is.
It's amazing. Contains the definitive version of 'Hallelujah' and his brilliant slowcore cover of 'Heartbreak Hotel' together with superb versions of all his own best songs.
