The Velvet Underground: i 45 anni "dell'album degli album" (con inedito)

405

Per chi scrive probabilmente ‘White Light/White Heat’ è “L’ALBUM”. Le fondamenta di tanto, troppo, quasi tutto. Un monolite. Un colosso che ancora oggi irrradia luce ed ispirazione. Il disco seminale per eccellenza. Dopo i festeggiamenti per i 45 anni del debutto ‘The Velvet Underground & Nico’ avvenuti nel 2012, stesso trattamento viene riservato al disco in questione pronto all’uscita deluxe il 3 dicembre via Universal. Un regalo di Natale imprescindibile per far comprendere a neofiti, non appassionati, appassionati con ottusità senile, appassionati rimasti appassionati, il mondo intero tutto, cosa diavolo rappresenti quest’opera monumentale. ‘White Light/White Heat 45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition’ è un triplo CD a cui hanno messo mani il compianto Lou Reed e John Cale. Rimasterizzazione sia stereo che mono e materiale che comprende “alternate versions of tracks like ‘Hey Mr. Rain’, new mixes of ‘Beginning to See the Light’ and ‘Guess I’m Falling in Love’, and previously unreleased vocal and instrumental versions of ‘The Gift’, plus tracks recorded during Cale’s final session with the group. There’s also a previously unheard live set recorded in New York on April 30, 1967, (the setlist from that show includes favorites like ‘I’m Waiting for the Man’, ‘Sister Ray’ and ‘Run Run Run’) in addition to new liner notes”.

Ed ecco proprio “l’inedita” ‘I’m Not A Young Man Anymore’ (ascolta)
