The Velvet Underground: Live at Max's Kansas City (Atlantic)

Jonathon Green, International Times, 25 August 1972

THE VELVET Underground were New York's premier rock band. Max's Kansas City still is a club that makes the Speakeasy something like a pale reflection of the Darby and Joan get-togethers. A couple of years ago a Velvets fan outed with her mono cassette during a performance of the one at the other and came away with the contents of this cheapo album (a cut in price, the liner notes assure us, that comes from the lack of studio costs, not cos the Velvets are crummy).
