Format: Audio CD
This second half of 1969 Live isn't quite the tour de force that Volume 1 is - it's slightly patchy by comparison. But its high points are still very high indeed.

Both CDs contain material recorded over a series of concerts in San Francisco in late November/early December 1969 (the majority) with a few tracks from a concert in Dallas a few weeks earlier. But the sound quality from the two sources is so similar that it sounds as if it could all have come from one night.

Ocean first appeared on Lou Reed's debut solo album; the Velvets had recorded several studio versions but the slow, stately 10 minute version here is definitive and thoroughly epic. Pale Blue Eyes actually improves on the superb version on their 3rd album. The version of Heroin here I'm not crazy about but isn't bad by any means. Some Kinda Love grafts a spoken intro from Dallas onto a performance from San Francisco but is a fine version. Over You is a cute little love song (something Lou Reed was surprisingly good at!) that's never appeared anywhere else. The medley of Sweet Bonnie Brown and It's Just Too Much likewise had never appeared anywhere else (though another version of It's Just Too Much, from the Dallas gig, has surfaced subsequently on the box set) and sounds like a couple of stoopid throwaway songs Reed made up as he went along; they're one of the most effortless, guileless and unforced slices of enjoyable rock'n'roll I know of - sheer innocent fun. White Light/White Heat is, for me, the nadir of this album - it goes on three times as long as it needs to and features some pretty uninspired guitar mangling. I Can't Stand It is a bonus track which didn't appear on the original double LP; there are better live versions on bootleg but it's pretty good.

I have this and its partner on vinyl. I have them both now on CD. So I guess I like them. I never saw them before the re-union so this is close as I can get to those days. It does have background noise but that is part of the charm. Put it on, turn the lights down, go fix a drink and you can almost see Lou and the guys on the stage and its the people on the next table you hear chatting. If you're after clean then this isn't for you. But then you wouldn't like the Velvets.

No way- more like desert-supurb...has a differant flavour to vol I but periodically smacks you right between the eyes...which vol one does from the outset

Not as good as Volume 1, but that isn't saying much. If you only buy one of the pair then it should probably be the other one - but once you've bought that you will certainly want to own both! This recording seems to be from a different gig to it's partner, and whilst it's still very good, it doesn't quite carry the same atmosphere or depth as vol 1. But then very few albums do. It is still well-worth hearing this for extended stage versions of Velvet classics.
