*CANCELLED* Ron got some work(!), so we won't be able to take a vacation in mid-August.
Opening the release party for Book City editor David K. at CBGB in NY with some *poems.*
Loaded was the first LP I purchased (though I'd received some give LPs -- Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan), in 1979? of course a classic year for CBGB (Television, Patti Smith, Blondie, et. al.)
"Lonesome Cowboy Bil" -- and its relationship to cow punk?
Rhino/Atlantic will on Aug. 3 release an expanded edition of the Velvet Underground concert album "Live at Max's Kansas City," chronicling what is believed to be frontman Lou Reed's final performance with the seminal New York act. The album was originally issued in 1972 with 10 tracks, but now sports the seven additional numbers from the two-set show, taped Aug. 23, 1970.Perhaps with his imminent departure from the band in mind, Reed trotted out early Velvets tracks like "White Light/White Heat," "I'll Be Your Mirror" and "I'm Waiting for the Man," plus the rarely performed "Sunday Morning" and "After Hours." The group also unveiled material from its yet-to-be-released album "Loaded," including "Who Loves the Sun," "Sweet Jane" and "Lonesome Cowboy Bill."
