2013 reissue; originally released in 1966. The first North American CD release of the "electric newspaper," an archetypal '60s counterculture "happening" from August 6, 1966, this is also the first edition anywhere since the original vinyl to include the lengthy closing track, "Interview with Hairy." A legendary all-star cast of performers got together to make an anti-war collage of words and sounds that defies mere track listings -- one of the elements is "Silence" by Andy Warhol, which, contrary to at least one wrong-headed European reissue, is not actually a separate track (so don't write in complaining about its supposed absence). For some period of time, while the radio played and/or other performers did their things, Andy stood in the studio silently. Hey, it was the '60s. It's a concept, man. Track listing includesplastic clock radioSteve WeberThe Velvet UndergroundGerard Malanga and Ingrid SuperstarMarion Brown, Scott Holt, and Ron JacksonAllen Ginsberg and Peter OrlovskyTuli Kupferberg;Ishmael Reed; Andy Warhol; and Ken Weaver and Ed Sanders. RIYL: Revolution, The Fugs, owning EVERY Velvet Underground track.
