Velvet Underground at the Boston Tea Party (1969)
Jonathan Richman, who would soon form the Modern Lovers, caught this January 1969 concert at a club in Boston and later wrote: "Sometimes you just plain couldn't figure out where on the stage those strange sounds and harmonics were coming from, because of the eerie calm with which they played and improvised in front of you." This audio-only, hour-and-a-half bootleg contains "Run Run Run," "What Goes On," "I Can't Stand It" and especially thunderous drumming from Moe Tucker. Check out the crescendos in "Heroin."
