Velvet Underground

Who knew this video of the VU performing Heroin even existed? Or with Nico on Femme Fatale?
“In the beginning of ’72 three ex-members of the Velvet Underground – Lou Reed, John Cale and Nico – were touring in Europe at the same time, and decided to meet themselves for just one magical concert in a club called Le Bataclan, in Paris. …”
What if you happened to be in Paris in 1972 and happened to have been in a club when the Velvet Underground, which had broken up, reunited for one special night. 
 
Ah, to have been there.
 
Well someone was, and there was even a film crew to record it. Why this hasn’t surfaced before, well, who knows?
 
Yet another wonderful aspect of the web that nobody ever counted on. People want to share. 
 
The low quality of the video just adds to the mystique.
 
Thanks to Music for Your Eyes, apparently.
Ooh, Amazon has it. And here’s me without an Amazon partner link. Oh well…
