What I bring you is my whole collection of not released Lou Reed Concerts


This is merely a Blog for audio and video recordings of Velvet Underground (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. I only provide meta information files for the ROIOs.

If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this Blog for free among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to me. I will then put you in our list of not allowed artists, known as the NAB list. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs using this Blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
If you download a concert
do notsell anywhere
Share it for free and always in flac or other lossless formate

Thank you very much

Every concert contains art-work in PNG 360 lossless. Some are X-Large, others fits exactly in a jewel-case

My most important contacts in the past were
Mike Kostek of VUAS
Louis F. Schürmann
Hias Schaschko
Gordon (lurid)
Michael (mjg196)
Guido Piccinetti from Italy (he died in a car accident in 1994)

This was the last letter I received. From his wife Isabella

Guido was "the" european Fan from the first hour and I'm very proud, that I was albe to get in touch with him. Most of my records and tapes of Lou Reed are from him. I don't know if he was a founder, but he was involved in the famous lable "Aulica Records" which released the fantastic "End Col Ave" of Velvet Underground.

Last Point:

You love Lou Reed and you're a true Rock'N' Roller? So please share your rarities. I know, you don't get money and even no 'Thank you' for what you're sharing. What do you have, when you're the only person who has a tape nobody can hear, only you? Why not sharing with other fans? You will have more satisfy to give than to take.

In the historic ferment of Sixties rock, the Velvet Underground were the perfect band in the right city, New York, at a crucial time.
For five years 1965 to 1970 singer-songwriter and guitarist Lou Reed, bassist and viola player John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison and drummer Maureen Tucker, with the German vocalist Nico and bassist Doug Yule (who replaced Cale in 1968), broadcast the real life of their home town the sex, drugs and art; the furious street energies, hidden pleasures and desperate romance in an unprecedented pop music of vivid storytelling and transgressive excitement.
On stage and on their four influential studio albums, the Velvets invented the many futures of rock punk, drone, free improvisation, lyric candor in songs and performances that made the group notorious, with the pivotal help of their early manager and mentor, Andy Warhol. Legendary status came later, after the group broke up and Reed and Cale went on to bold prolific solo careers.
Today, the Velvet Underground are the stars they always deserved to be, with a rich and still mysterious story that continues to unfold: in the new visual collection, The Velvet Underground: New York Art, and tonight, in this unprecedented reunion of Reed, Tucker and Yule-the words,music and rhythm of The Velvet Underground.

Velvet Underground
Paramount Theatre, Springfield
17 April 1970


track 01: Heroin 8.41 (raw file)
track 02: Heroin 8.41 (with high pass filtering + bandpass shaping)

Lou Reed: guitar, vocals
Sterling Morrison: guitar
Doug Yule: guitar (+keyboards?)

The remainder of this show appeared on the "After The White Heat" bootleg 3CD set, and has recently been torrented on Dime by Roofvogel. The bootleg issue omitted "Heroin" (why?), which appears to be the last song of the set. An interesting performance considering Moe wasn't there to drive it along.

This has always been about the worst available 1960s VU live recording in terms of sound quality. It really does sound as if it was recorded by someone sitting in the car park outside the venue. But beggers cant be choosers - we have to be greatful for every available recorded second! The source for the bootleg issue was obviously a much lower generation copy than my cassette, and is almost listenable. I'm not sure if my cassette copy rates even that high....but you need it to get the whole show.

Track 01 is straight off Lurids cassette and normalised using Wavepad

Track 02 is the same file put through a (digital) low pass filter then shaped a bit more using a bandpass before being normalised: All done by Lurid

riginal recording engineer unknown
transfer to wav by lurid_uk

Interview, WBCN
Boston, MA
March 3, 1969

"...I just think it's fantastic that we can play this stuff in public....."


track 01: Velvet Underground interview segment 1 (0.47)
track 02: Velvet Underground interview segment 2 (5.45)
track 03: Velvet Underground interview segment 3 (2.56)

Total time: 9:28

segment 1
The Murder Mystery (studio version)
Afterhours (studio version)
segment 2
What Goes On (studio version)
segment 3
(new single by Wilkinson's Tricycle)

This is a great interview with Lou and Doug (or is it Sterling?), promoting the 3rd Lp in Boston before the upcoming (March 13/14/15) residency at the Tea Party. Lou talks expansively about the new songs to an obviously appreciative DJ, even reciting lines from "The Murder Mystery" and describing how they play it live as part of "Sister Ray". The interview was clearly intended to end after segment 2, but the DJ lets Lou talk on after "What Goes On" is finished.

"The Professor Tapes"
Volume One to six

The Story behind
The Professor kept these tapes to himself, not out of musical greed but rather lack of a forum, until a programming event came up on his university radio station, WHRB-FM at Harvard U., that focused exclusively on the VU for a period of many consecutive hours. (I can't remember exactly when this "orgy" was, nor how long it lasted, but perhaps those details are documented elsewhere.) During this VU orgy, he broadcast all five of the tapes each in its entirety. Within a week all five of them were already circulating on bootlegs (perhaps only cassette, I don't recall) in Europe, and have been in general circulation ever since.
Paul (original name is changed) recently discovered amid his personal possessions is a set of reel tapes, which, with the Professor's cooperation, He had had professionally transferred from his original reels, shortly after their initial broadcast. They also made good-quality cassettes during the same session, and as it was those cassettes that he has used as listening copies ever since, he eventually forgot that he even had the reels. When those tapes reappeared after a recent house move, however, Paul had them professionally baked and digitized.

Paul doesn't want to miss the opportunity to salute the one person who, aside from the band itself, was most responsible for these recordings: the Professor, Robin Hood. Robin was a very sweet guy, and Paul can't imagine he'd be anything but delighted with the dissemination of his tapes to us-all. If he were around to hear it, Paul would be thanking him profusely right now.

We have here a professional 1st gen transfer of the master tape (and the master of "Praise Ye") which is a very nice thing.

So don't SELL anywhere and don't try to make a Bootleg

It's the first and only place where you can get this tapes for free.

So keep them free always!

Enjoy and keep sharing, always in flac without any munipulations.
