AUDIO: The Velvet Underground (1993)

Mat Snow, Rock's Backpages Audio, May 1993

Messrs. Cale and Reed (with short contributions from Morrison and Tucker) talk about the current reunion and look back at the original band: the dynamics of the Reed/Cale relationship; Cale's ouster from the band; the sound of the band; and the songs they play and the characters that surrounded the band at the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
