Annotation

This CD was probably mastered from the The Velvet Underground - Everything You've Ever Heard About....... 3-LP box set. Tracklist is inaccurate: The Ostrich and I'm Sticking With You are listed as track 5 and 12 but actually not on disc. The cd also has a foldout poster insert.

Tracks 1 - 15 are early singles and studio demo's
Tracks 16 - 25 are recorded live

Uncredited notes:
1: Carol Lou Trio, early 70s (listed as Afterhours. The original label miscredits the songwriting to "Lou Reed," but the actual composers were Erskine Hawkins and Avery Parrish.)
2, 3: The Jades (2), pre-VU
4: The All Night Workers, pre-VU
5: The Primitives (3), pre-VU
6, 7: The Beachnuts, pre-VU
8: The Roughnecks (3), pre-VU
9-11, 14, 16: rough mix demos
12: Gymnasium, New York, April 1967
13, 15: Ludlow Street loft demos, early 1967
17-20, 22, 23: Max's Kansas City rehearsals, Summer 1970
21: Max's Kansas City, "July 26, 1970"
