Editorial Reviews

The Velvet Underground - the Quine Tapes - a definitive document of the live Velvet Underground. VINYL BOX SET: 6-LPs packaged in three striking gatefold jackets with poster/handbill inserts, rare photos and a deluxe box! the Velvet Underground's revolutionary mix of boundary-breaking sonic extremism and transgressive lyrical content changed the face of rock 'n' roll forever. It was on stage that the band's unprecedented vision truly came to life. But the band never made any official live recordings, leaving fans with the small handful of live Velvets tapes that have emerged over the years. Undeniably, the most comprehensive and compelling embodiment of the Velvet Underground's live brilliance is the bountiful cache of 1969 tapes recorded by Velvets fan and future alt-rock guitar icon Robert Quine (who would go on to play with the Velvet Underground's leader Lou Reed more than a decade later). The Velvet Underground - the Quine Tapes is a definitive document of the live Velvet Undergr

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
When the legendary Quine Tapes were first released on a 3-CD box set in 2001, it was like a gift from up above for Velvet Underground die-hards. While the audio fidelity was nowhere near perfect, it was much better than 95 percent of the existing VU bootlegs. And more importantly, it was a treasure trove of the Velvets at one of their peaks (the Yule-era Velvets were a different animal than the Cale-era band, but just as exciting). With three mind-blowing versions of "Sister Ray," the previously unreleased "Follow The Leader," the rarity "Over You," live versions of songs they rarely performed live like "I'm Sticking With You," "The Black Angel's Death Song," and "Sunday Morning," the much-talked-about but previously unheard "I'm Waiting For The Man" where Lou Reed improvised several minutes worth of new lyrics, and the only known live version of "Ride Into the Sun," with an extended bass solo (!) no less, this was overload for VU fanatics everywhere.

At the time, I fell in love with the Quine Tapes CDs, listening to them for months on end. I also thought, "it would be great if this was available on vinyl," but doubted it would ever happen because it would take like, what, SIX records to contain this whole thing, right? Once Sundazed announced they were bringing out a vinyl version, I was filled with anticipation until I got my hands on it. Suffice to say, it's worth it. Rather than making a vinyl master from the existing digital master used for the CDs, Bob Irwin has gone back to the Quine Tapes themselves to cut a brand new analog master just for this set. And while the new master doesn't magically make this set sound like a good soundboard recording, it *is* much improved over the CD version. The blanket of hiss that covered the CDs is gone, and the sound is less "flat.

This set since the cd release has shed much more light on the whole VU sound which we all had our boots and the max' and the green live 69 which still rates for me but.... There are many garage moments and moe really propels the band in a way that wasn't apparent until these recordings showed the very long extended songs like sister Ray that pounded for over a half hour at a time. In fact, David fricke points out how special the last 37 plus version is on here. I can say that the guitar playing and the bands morphability astounds. They may have been dosed? I can only tell you to listen to side 12 the last second half of sister Ray and you tell me. It's the VU playing trips music... I F you're into downloads it's the last two tracks...I'm a big Lou and VU and Cale fan...you name it...this is a treasure trove of guitar group styles.
