Early Adopters
In my ongoing quest to bring you every last bit of Velvet Underground ephemera, here’s a cool mix of VU covers that were recorded during the band’s initial lifetime, 1967-1970. Some awesome interpretations here, as well as a handful of bands who (coincidentally?) took on the name The Velvet Underground back then. Let’s get ephemeral! Thanks to Phil Milstein for compiling.
