OK, got the Norwegian dirge music out of my system last week, this week I'm on a Velvet Underground binge, mostly the first three albums, but also assorted live tracks and extras. Haven't really sat down and listened to this stuff for a very long time. It's like visiting an old friend. Classic stuff, thru and thru.
There's a great 9 minute live version of this on you-tube, recorded in San Francisco in 1969. Thought that might be a bit much for here, but if you're a fan I recommend searching it out.
Mentioning that Lou can be "simple, but darn effective", I love this;Same here in sunny Florence, Italy. All this warm weather wanted me to listen to The Velcet Underground again after, I dunno, 5 years? Maybe it’s the circle of life.
Thanks for the link mate, I really liked it.
Lately Lou Reed’s Country Gent is up in my head as “tones I’d like to achieve”. Simple, but darn effective. I love it.
