Velvet Underground - Sister Ray (Boston 15/3/69).... 26 minutes long!

Been listening to tons of VU live stuff on YouTube the past couple of days..... It's really quite a revelation! Since I am a fan of guitar improv, I'm not sure why these copious recordings had previously escaped my attention (I guess before YouTube, they were only available on bootlegs and kinda hard to get). I've been loving live Jimi Hendrix recordings for some time, but I hadn't occurred to me to seek out similar recordings online from VU, until Lou's untimely passing.

Check out this gem from a Boston show in 1969, wherein Sister Ray is assaulted for nearly half an hour!
