The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground Documentary Film By Todd Haynes OST (2xLP Vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $42.00
Tax included.


Curated by director Todd Haynes, the official soundtrack to his feature documentary about the highly influential, iconic New York band, The Velvet Underground. Featuring the tracks 'Pale Blue Eye's and 'Sunday Morning' among many more. It includes well-known and rare tracks from the band as well as songs and performances that influenced The Velvet Underground, including the doo-wop of The Diablos, the groundbreaking rock & roll of Bo Diddley, and the avant-garde compositions of La Monte Young. It also features exclusive liner notes by Haynes.





 

Like the film, this doesn't really offer much new to those who are already fans of Velvet Underground. There's non-VU songs, VU studio songs, and live performances. The live performances have been available for a while. The studio performances have been available for... well, since 1967-70. The most interesting parts are the non-VU releases, including the proto-VU Primitives song. I wish (like I wished for the documentary) for more new material. Maybe some lost demos, live tracks that haven't already been compiled before. I get that if it doesn't exist, it doesn't exist, but then this whole soundtrack feels a bit pointless.
