Thirty Days of Fifty # 22 The Velvet Underground

Thirty years ago when I started university, part of me just wanted to front a Rock and Roll band. It never transpired and ultimately, that's a good thing. If I had though, The Velvet Underground would have been the template. That same year their old record company, Verve, released a series of recorded songs, rarely heard in these forms before, that might have made up their fourth studio album. It was a revelation, a wonderful set of songs and a whole new band sound that pointed the way to what they eventually realised with Loaded. This one's sung by Doug Yule though his vocal style had an uncanny resemblance to Reed's and you wouldn't really know it.
