The Velvet Underground announced that on July 12, the rock band will debut a vinyl box set covering the two-day performances from their 1969 residency in San Francisco.
During their extensive tour in 1969, The Velvet Underground spent a series of 18 nights over four separate engagements in San Francisco.
Originally released as a LP box set, The Velvet Underground – The Complete Matrix Tapes makes its vinyl debut as a limited edition, eight-LP, 43-track box set.
It will feature recordings that have been mixed down directly from the original in-house multi-tracks, including the 18 tracks featured on a Super Deluxe Edition of the Velvets’ third album and nine previously unreleased performances marking the first time all the available tapes will be released on vinyl.
The vinyl box set will be available only at shop.velvetundergroundmusic.com.
