RARE LPs UP THIS WEEK!
HOLY GRAIL for Velvet Underground collectors!
Supposedly there were about 300 copies made and sent to radio stations, most of which have disappeared with time - this is only the 2nd copy of this Rare set that I have ever seen show up for auction!
Incredibly Rare ~Original 1968 stereo Double 2xLP White Label promo ~ MGM Records (# MFRS-3)!
It has producer/deejay Tom Wilson chatting with John Cale and Lou Reed over the course of an hour-long
radio broadcast, and they play and discuss these VU tracks: "The Gift "[excerpt],
"White Light/White Heat", "Lady Godiva's Operation", "I'll Be Your Mirror”.
Portions of this interview have found their way onto some obscure VU releases over the years,
but here is the whole thing, where Lou Reed and John Cale discuss the history of the band
and the circumstances behind White Light/White Heat which they had just finished;
where Lou Reed expresses his desire to make personalized Velvet Underground year-long tapes for
everyone to stick in their walls ("We'd supply armbands, labels. We'd reclassify");
where John Cale explores the notion of creating weather by using music, etc…
There is also a memorable 'commercial' for Nico's Chelsea Girl LP, as well as a very funny 60-second
Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention 'commercial' for the Absolutely Free LP.
The hour is rounded out with music from Verve/MGM artists like Tim Buckley, Tim Hardin,
Richie Havens, The Blues Project, etc.
Don't Sleep ~ this you will NOT see this one again soon!
