1969 Velvet Underground Live with Lou Reed
This was my introduction to The Velvet Underground sometime in 1974, I have owned both the red label original and the "buildings" label repress version from 1975. I was in my last 2 years of high school, and "my life was saved by rock-n-roll". This 2LP is in my "Top Ten" Live Albums of All Time, right up there with The Who - Live at Leeds (1970) & Grateful Dead (skull & roses) (1971). Is there a Velvet Underground without Lou Reed? No. When I first heard this live double-album, I instantly liked it!!! I had already read a lot about The Velvet Underground by 1974 in magazines (Creem, Crawdaddy, Circus, Rolling Stone, etc.), but I had never owned a Velvet Underground record before this 2LP came out in 1974. They were hard to come by in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas where I grew up. From the 1st musical notes I heard the moment I dropped the turntable needle down, I recognized the raw talent of lead guitarist and main vocalist Lou Reed, girl drummer Mo Tucker (Maureen Tucker), a fluent rhythm guitarist Sterling Morrison, and new bass player and organist / keyboard Doug Yule (who had replaced the departed old bass player and violinist John Cale). Right from the first song here, they were "the real deal". It was "pure rock-n-roll" played with joy and energy, way before The Ramones appeared on the scene a couple of years later. But these live recordings were from October & November of 1969 when The Ramones were still playing with marbles, probably. Check out songs, beginning with the first song "Waiting For The Man" - complete with spoken introduction about pro football and staying up late on a school night... a responsible Lou Reed?? hard to believe, but it's right there, preserved in the historic grooves.
"What Goes On" - what a great groove!!! Doug Yule shines on organ! It should have been on Dick Clark's American Bandstand TV Show! A definite 95 score (at least), great to dance to! And I did!
"Sweet Jane" - totally different lyrics version, and beautiful in melody, a great 1960s torch song.
"Rock and Roll" - another great dance groove song!!! some of the greatest rock-n-roll songs are on this 2LP, and NOBODY in the world can beat "American rock-n-roll". This is as good as it gets!
"Pale Blue Eyes" & "I'll Be Your Mirror" - 2 of the most romantic love songs ever written.
"Sweet Bonnie Brown" / "It's Just Too Much" - an uptempo combination of 2 rare ones...
Really, the whole 4 sides are so good I played all 4 sides 100s of times in the 1970s. Even after I located and bought the original 4 studio albums, I kept coming back to my "ear opening experience" of "1969 Velvet Underground Live with Lou Reed".
I still listen to it today, 45 years later. It still sounds like "authentic rock-n-roll" made by authentic rock-n-roll maestros!
