    Dude. KSPC. I listened to that when i lived in claremont in 7th grade.
    I would just record the whole night to cassette tape and it was nothing but gold. I still have a cpl cassette tapes from back then..

    TRULY one of the great VU live tapes. the guy who recorded it had his mic right in front of Lou’s amp all night – the Sister Ray on that is BRUTAL.

    another great VU boot is “If it’s Too Loud, Then Stand Back!” the cleanest version of the columbus, ohio 1966 show out there. you can hear the audience go “WTF” after each song.

    Rhythm guitar as drum

    It’s on some liner note somewhere, or some dern place from long ago…. Lou Reed’s talking about something involving “old black music” (I don’t remember what type) and admiring how they “use the rhythm guitar like a drum.” I’ve never forgotten that.

    Obviously I’m not alone. Me and What Goes On have a date that’s never been kept, as they say–that version made my hackles lift. Jumping Jehosophat.

    “…great VU live tape [which includes Sister Ray]” Is this a named, indeed buyable, entity?
