Taped by Dick Felton. It also circulates under false pretenses as "Lawrence, Kansas, 1966" or "Cleveland, 4/11/66". The best source is the Move Back! 2-CD set which offers an unedited version of this legendary recording. Some versions of that tape have one minute edited out in the middle of Waiting For The Man. Also at the end of that song you can hear two barkings which are not on the original version. My opinion is that this version was dubbed "through the air" with a microphone in front of a speaker playing the original tape with some bonus noises: the barking dog... <br> <br>Doug Snyder: "This time one of us - Dick Felton - took a tape recorder. (...) Their equipment manager Dave Faison helped us with an extension cord for our mono recorder. (...) The tape Dick made of the concert ends with him saying, "I'm scared to play it back. I really am." Dick's tape has been bootlegged many times over the years - but never by him. The best known boot is Velvet Underground 1966, which was put out by Bernd Baierschmidt. The LP had Melody Laughter on one side, and The Nothing Song on the other - but were just called "side one" and "side two". Bernd's girlfriend was the mysterious cover girl. Bernd died as the result of a motorcycle crash a couple years later, so I can tell this about him. He had been the one to see the Velvets before the rest of us - probably before anyone else in Ohio, and for years was the cultural arbitrer of Cincinnati from his perch at Kidd's Books. (...) A few months after the EPI came to Ohio, Bernd Baierschmidt and Dick Felton took the Valleydale tape to New York. They called the Factory and asked for Andy. The voice said, "This Is Andy." They took Andy Warhol the tape, and he made a copy." <br> <br>John Cale: "We worked a huge place in Columbus, Ohio, filled with people drinking and talking. We tuned up for about ten minutes, tuning, fa-da-da, up, da-da-da down. There's a tape of it. Played a whole set to no applause, just silences." <br> <br>- The Velvet Underground Web Page http://members.aol.com/olandem2/perf6566.html <br> <br>Info: Sources: 1966 LP (1, 9), The Warlocks/The Falling Spikes LP (2-8), Legend LP (2, 3, 5, 6), Songs Of Cave CD (2-8), Down For You Is Up LP & CD (2-8), A Symphony Of Sound 2-LP (1 - excerpt), Live In Columbus CDs part 1 & 2 (1-9), EPI/1966 2-CD (1-9), Move Back! 2-CD (1-9), Caught Between The Twisted Stars 4-CD (1-9). <br> <br>- The Velvet Underground Web Page http://members.aol.com/olandem2/perf6566.html <br> <br>Tracklisting: <br>Disc One <br>01 - Melody Laughter (30:34) <br>02 - Femme Fatale (2:45) <br>03 - Venus In Furs (4:46) <br>04 - The Black Angel's Death Song (4:29) <br>05 - All Tomorrow's Parties (5:07) <br> <br>Disc Two <br>01 - I'm Waiting For The Man (4:25) <br>02 - Heroin (6:47) <br>03 - Run Run Run (8:51) <br>04 - The Nothing Song (29:07) <br> <br>Torrent History: <br>Originally seeded to Mind-Warp PaVilion by schnittstelle on July 7th, 2007. <br> <br>for goa
