Velvet Underground Loaded: Re-Loaded

vu_loaded-900x912

The Velvet Underground‘s fourth album Loaded will be reissued by Rhino as a six disc 45th anniversary edition in October.

The set will contain a remastered version of the 1970 album (in both stereo and mono) as well as a newly remastered version of 1972’s Live At Max’s Kansas City. A second, much bootlegged concert recording, Live At Second Fret, Philadelphia, 1970, gets its first commercial release part of this new set.

There is a wealth of demos, working versions, alternative B-sides and mixes included, although much of it has been out before, and a DVD is the sixth and final disc containing hi-res stereo and surround mixes. The 5.1 mix was undertaken by Kevin Reeves with guidance from Bill Levenson. Rhino have also confirmed to this blog that the packaging will reflect the other anniversary editions, so expect the same ‘book’ presentation.

Loaded: Reloaded 45th Anniversary set will be released on 30 October 2015
