Stream/Download: The Velvet Underground - "I'm Not a Young Man Anymore" (previously unreleased live recording)



For being anthologized as much as they have been, it's surprising to see a bootleg recording of the Velvet Underground surface that up until now had never been heard. This song is called "I'm Not a Young Man Anymore", and it's well in line with their locked-groove, repetitive late 60s style (this show apparently may have been recorded on April 30, 1967). Sure, it can't hold a candle to what the group was releasing on their records at the time, but any new VU song is worth your attention. This song is now streaming over at the Dead Flowers blog, with the entire show being available as an MP3 download. (from Forkcast via Dead Flowers)
