Velvet Underground: The Velvet Underground - A Documentary Film By Todd Haynes LP
Curated by the documentary's director, Todd Haynes, and music supervisor Randall Poster, this is the official soundtrack for the critically acclaimed Apple Original documentary, The Velvet Underground. Featuring some of VU's most well-known tracks, rarities and songs that influenced them, The Velvet Underground: A Documentary Film By Todd Haynes – Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack serves as the perfect introduction to the band and companion piece to the film.
The soundtrack features such Velvet favorites as "Sunday Morning," "All Tomorrow's Parties," "Pale Blue Eyes," "I'm Waiting for The Man" and "Sweet Jane," as well as the mono version of "Heroin" and the rare cut "Foggy Notion." Also featured are live versions of "After Hours" and "Sister Ray," Nico's "Chelsea Girls," and the tongue-in-cheek novelty song "The Ostrich" by The Primitives, an early band formed by Lou Reed and John Cale.
The soundtrack also features tracks by artists who influenced the band including a live version of "Road Runner" by Bo Diddley; "The Wind," a doo-wop classic by The Diablos featuring Nolan Strong; and the previously unpublished La Monte Young composition, "17 XII 63 NYC The Fire Is A Mirror (excerpt)," performed by The Theatre of Eternal Music.
