CD Reviews

The Velvet Touch!
Alan Harvey | Australia | 11/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a sensational compliation of VU recordings from all Verve/MGM,Mercury, and Atlantic/Cotillion releases.Released on the Raven label, who would have to be one of the worlds' best reissue companies, this set contains 47 tracks,interviews, 42 page book, rare photos and more. Raven for those who don't know is headed by Aussie Glen A. Baker who has been voted Rock Brain of the Universe a number of times (even beating Dave Marsh!). This 3CD set has over 228 minutes of music with a wonderfull spoken intro by Andy Warhol. A must for fans and rock historians!"
**** Forget about " Peel Slowly and See " This blows it aw

"I was at my local used c.d. store ; ' Reckless Records ' in Chicago , Il......I saw this behind the counter....have always been a HUGE fan of V.U.....knew that this box set was considered the ' Holy Grail ' of V.U. compilations....was in mint condition so I gobbled it up......came home and played it...all I can say is that THIS box BLOWS AWAY ' Peel Slowly and See ''s out of print? on an Aussie label 'Raven' so might be tough to find ...... I'll also say that the sound is SUPERLATIVE to are the track selections / little rare tid-bits , and a GREAT book.......and the little sound bites of Andy Warhol in the early days is VERY cool !.....You know the track listings and all that so I'll spare you.... P.S.A.S. really should have been this good , but they dropped the ball in a lot of respects...this set does NOT !!!....all I will say is that if you come across this box GRAB IT , you won't be dissapointed !"
Rare mixes and out-takes

"Although the track list replicates many of the titles from the Peel Slowly & See st, What Goes On includes the entire first LP in MONO, plus the OOP original Closet Mix of the third! Also includes live versions from the 1969 album, plus otherwise unavailable live tracks, acetates, radio spots and interviews from Warhol's Factory."
