Reconstructing the Velvet Underground's Lost Album (Again)


Nine years ago, I did one of those silly things where I tried to revise history to make my own convenient compilation of a large, disorganized body of work that is hard to track down in full. In this case, it was the "lost album" by The Velvet Underground from circa 1969. Since that time, a few new reissues and archival releases have been released, and I've tracked down a few other stray versions I hadn't been able to find before. I finally took the time to re-evaluate all of the available versions, and as a result, I've expanded my original commentary and updated the playlist to account for my new preferences. See what you think!
