January 10th 1969 was the second show of another 3 night stay at the Velvets "second home", the Boston Tea Party. This recording was made by the "Professor", who reputedly smuggled his reel-reel recorder into the venue under a large poncho.

Some minor changes from the Dec 12 68 show but basically the same set. Also a slightly better quality recording - the vocals and instruments are all reasonably clear even if there isn't much dynamic range and the sound is very "boxy". The 3rd LP wouldn't be released till March, but there are 5 songs from it here.

Great guitar work from Lou and Sterl on "What Goes On".

I understand that the Professor's master reels are now in the possession of Universal Music Group, and were transferred and mastered for potential release as part of the "Bootleg Series". It seems unlikely that that will ever happen now, so this 1st generation copy is as good as it's gonna get.....
