Between May and October 1969, the Velvet Underground--Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison, Moe Tucker and Doug Yule--recorded fourteen songs at the Record Plant in New York City for what would have been the band's fourth album for MGM/Verve Records. But when the Velvets left the label soon after, the recordings were shelved, and would not be heard by the public for a decade and a half. These songs, from those long-lost sessions, capture the Velvet Underground at a fascinating transitional point between the understated intimacy of their self-titled third album and the focused melodic rock of their next release, Loaded . This never-before-released single isn't included in the Singles 1966-69 box set and is released here in a distinctive newly-designed sleeve on gold vinyl.
