Live With Lou Reed, Vol.1 - The Velvet Underground:

The track listing on this record beats all the other albums if you ask me...it's got: Sweet Jane, We're gonna have a real good time, Heroin, Waiting for The Man, Rock 'n Roll...and the list goes on. "As far as Velvet Underground live material, I had only heard Live at Max's Kansas City, which I love, so I expected more of the same from the 1969 material, fidelity wise, before I heard this. Surprise! The 1969 series is an enormous step up in quality and the performances are even better. 1969 used to be one volume and it should be still; there is no difference in the liner notes or packaging but there is now a volume 1 and volume 2. Having said this, if you must buy one of these volumes, this is the one. They are both great, but this one rocks more, has a better song selection and a longer running time. It may be blasphemy to say, but I think the versions of What Goes On and Beginning To See The Light here are better than the studio recordings. Check this out! You won't be disappointed.
