The Velvet Underground - New York Rehearsal 1966

PARACHUTE RECORDING COMPANY

  • £22.99


What fan wouldn't want to be a fly on the wall for a 1966 Velvet Underground rehearsal? Practising songs for their debut record, this session was recorded at Andy Warhol's factory in early 1966, and broadcast live on a local NYC radio station. 

The results are technically like any band rehearsal; false starts, chatting, and songs that merge into one another. But this is the nascent stage of one of the most influential bands of the era, and a band whose finished material can seem impossibly cool and groundbreaking. Here we're given a glimpse of the awkward, eclectic inner workings of the songs, and the strong foundations of garage, blues, and rock and roll that underpinned the Velvet Underground's own unique sound.
