Big news for Velvets fans. Dead Flowers has generously liberated a freshly discovered bootleg of a 1967 Velvet Underground show at the Gymnasium in NYC.
It’s lifted from a message board post by a character calling himself “Furious Wank” who claims, “It’s the ONLY available live stuff from 1967 and has only become available in literally the last two days. Recorded just after the release of The Velvet Underground And Nico and featuring the debut performance of Sister Ray (19 mins long) and the *previously unheard* song I’m Not A Young Man Any More.”
I’ve listened to it (somewhat skeptically) and it definitely sounds like the real deal to my ears. Gotta love Lou Reed whining about no longer being a young man at ripe old age of 25. Dipshit whippersnapper.
