I just want to say I love the Velvet Underground, been listening to them since I was a crazy teen. I could listen to I'll be your mirror over and over. Nico has such a cool voice.

Agreed. But my favourite song that she sings on is "All Tomorrow's Parties"
That being said, I love all the songs on this album. It's in my top 5 of all time

I've been binging on fresh, and for a change interesting, VU reading. I love this band.

The Day-By-Day book, I assume? My copy arrived a couple of days ago, and I'm loving it so far, despite only being up to '64 - it's high fucking time there was another worthwhile VU book to file alongside Uptight & Feedback

I haven't finished reading that either. It was long overdue, and, in way, timely.

That would be a brilliant start. Uptight too. I'd even recommend Victor Bockris' biography of Andy Warhol. It will get you into the whole spirit of the time.
Nico-wise, I'll never tire of it, read 'Songs they Never Play On The Radio'. It'll make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.

Anyone read that Lou Reed biog that's referenced a few times in the new Day-To-Day book (can't remember the name off-hand)?
Might have to track that one down...

The Day by Day book is amazing. I would recommend it to every Velvet fan who can't get enough of them.

Hey, this probably goes without saying, but I hope you all have the Lou Reed, John Cale & Nico BATACLAN album. It's awesome.

An excellent group. In my mind ranked perfectly in terms of quality and contextual relevance. Plus these fuckers looked cool:

They're definitely one of my favorite bands of all time. Definitely.

On a side note, a friend of mine found a 45 by a band called The Primitives, which is supposedly Lou Reed and John Cale's first garage group. I haven't heard it yet, but apparently its worth a ton of money and not that great.

Anyone know of it?

Probably the reissue that came out a few years ago - on the off-chance it's an original, it's worth upwards of $500.

It's a pretty sweet record too for a teen dance-crazecash-in - unlike all of Reed's other pre-Velvets output, his distinctive VU guitar/vocal style is more-or-less all there.

Do-o-o the ostrich!
