5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best 21 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are not many well recorded Velvet Underground concerts around and this is both well recorded and very well played. Some of this stuff is really special — including a dazzling, 17 minutes long version of "Sister Ray" — and some of it was released before on the famous Velvet Underground "Live 1969" album that was released in 1974. It's all equally fine. Along with "Live 1969", this is the one to get, but beware, this is the "Second Night" (blue cover), and the one NOT to get is the "First Night" (brown cover). Both look nearly alike, trouble is the "First Night" is really awfully recorded while on the other hand this one is just great.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than 1969? 13 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
haven't listened to my vinyl copy of 1969 for a good few years (just ordered the two cds), but this has a radically different version of sister ray (absent from 1969) that eventually explodes into life, and shorter great versions of what goes on and ocean, plus fun try-outs of sticking with you and rock and roll. on balance prefer the head-banging near instrumentals of legendary guitar amp (when, oh when, will it become generally available?), but this is great. more even than urban and ballsier than max's.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tapes that birthed LIVE 1969 10 July 2013
By W. T. Hoffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
On the 27th and 28th of October 1969, the Velvet Underground played THE END OF COLE AVE in Dallas Texas. On the FIRST NIGHT, a guy showed up with a reel to reel and a couple of mics, and set up his rig in the back of the house. The Velvet Underground noticed him, and had him move to the front of the house, for the second set of the First Night. (One mic on Lou's vocal mic, and the other one a stage mic.) The second night has the recording rig set up front for the whole night. Some of these songs were used for the LIVE 1969 VELVET UNDERGROUND release, with the woman's behind on the cover. Overall, THE SECOND NIGHT has the better sound, compared to the FIRST NIGHT. As soon as this set opens, you'll recognize bits from the LIVE 1969 set, when Lou asked the audience if they want two short sets, or one long set. AT THE END OF COLE AVE--SECOND NIGHT is the COMPLETE CONCERT.
1. I'm Waiting for the Man (5'31")
2. It's Just too Much (2'48")
3. I'll Be your Mirror (2'15")
4. Some Kinda Love (3'33")
5. Femme Fatale (2'39")
6. Beginning to See the Light (5'43")
7. I'm Set Free (4'18")
8. Afterhours (2'08")
9. I'm' Sticking with You (2'29")
10. One of These Days (3'22")
11. Pale Blue Eyes (5'57")
12. Ocean (5'50")
13. What Goes On (6'15")
14. Heroin (7'00")
15. Sister Ray (17'37")

The sound quality thruout is a solid A-, at times perhaps slipping down into a B+, because of amp overdrive bringing in some distortion. The balance sounds excellent, with Moe's snare SNAPPING near the front of the mix, with Lou's vocals, right where it belongs! Sterling's guitar noodles sit right near the front too, and the bass lays it all down nice and solid. Moe sounds EXCELLENT this night, but the whole band's fantastic, and tight as hell. Its a hot set, with very few weak spots. I don't care for the opening of Sister Ray, which is slow, almost like free jazz. The organ plays snake charmer melodies, Lou's guitar spins out freaky leads, with a VERY slow rhythm. Then suddenly, the song takes off, blasting into overdrive, faster than ANYBODY ever played back then. When it cant possibly get any faster, Moe blasts into a second stage overdrive, Super-mega-fast, predating thrash punk by a good 10 years. Its just one more example of the fantastic dynamics, thruout the set. Listen to the tender, delicate beauty of I"M SET FREE, next to the thrash of SISTER RAY. Hear Moe singing AFTERHOURS with that corny, folk jamboree vibe, (the crowd goes wild!), in contrast to the criminal drug world of Heroin and Sister Ray. The original bootleg version of this release included LISA SAYS, ROCK AND ROLL (acoustic version), and a 30 minute jam by roadies, which nobody needs to hear.

This is definitely a must-own for Velvet fans, if only to hear live versions of all those rarely heard songs like ONE OF THESE DAYS, I CANT STAND IT, LISA SAYS and OCEAN, which remained unreleased until 1985's "VU". (The so called lost MGM album.) Listening to SECOND NIGHT again as I write this, I'm surprised all over again, at how incredible this band jelled on stage. I can't pick out a single highlight, tho PALE BLUE EYES here outshines the album version. The organ-drum rhythm on WHAT GOES ON drives me crazy. Just-WOW. An ESSENCIAL purchase for VU fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wished it was Better 14 Nov 2013
By D. rand - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love the Velvet Underground and had high hopes in getting this cd with the extra songs. I purchased Live '69 in the early 80's on record. Unfortunately the sound quality is worse on this new release than what I get from my old album. I wished Keystone, the record company that released this cd, had spent a few dollars cleaning up the songs. They are just too muffled.

5.0 out of 5 stars On CD please ! 12 Nov 2013
By G-Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I know some of this material, from VU Live '69, the one with the unusual green cover that you didn't show your mother. So here is more of that material. Well if it were available on CD I would buy this in a flash, since there is some talk of the Live '69 album reissue CDs being taken from lps of the originals (for some songs) and I'd like the extra songs contained here too. What's the sound like on these two live vinyls lps ? Why can't I have them on CD ?

Hey, that original green live album which I already own on vinyl has had a long and eventful life, so it's showing signs of wear. Vinyl gets scratched-_. Play vinyl on one bad turntable and it'll never be the same again~%~. Vinyl is not always that cool (although I'd be the first to admit to loving the warm sound of those two old vinyl live lps).

But now I just don't need the vinyl. I was there, my vinyl of some of this stuff is 30 years old. OK, I should have dusted more regularly. But tell me, is this better quality than the CD issues of '69 Live ? And will this stuff be out on CD anytime soon ? What goes on ?

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt worth the money if you already have "Live 1969". 23 Jan 2014
By Luc Tousignant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many songs of this album was previewsly release under the title "Live 1969". If you already have this one, you dont have to buy the another one, except if you have a lot of money to spend. By the way, the shipping price is very expensive with the new policy of Amazon.
