About this album

This is the first of several attempts to reconstitute the band’s “lost fourth album” for Verve. It is comprised mostly of previously unreleased material from abortive 1969 sessions, with additional unreleased material from a 1968 session with John Cale. Additional material from both of these sessions would appear on Another View, and another version of the “lost fourth album” was released much later as 1969. Last.fm’s track listing is entirely incorrect and bears no resemblance to the actual contents of this album. The correct track listing is:

1. I Can’t Stand It - 3:24
2. Stephanie Says - 2:51
3. She’s My Best Friend - 2:49
4. Lisa Says - 2:55
5. Ocean - 5:12
6. Foggy Notion - 6:44
7. Temptation Inside Your Heart - 2:30
8. One Of These Days - 3:53
9. Andy’s Chest - 2:52
10. I’m Sticking With You - 2:27

Of this material, “Stephanie Says” and “Temptation Inside Your Heart” were from the 1968 sessions; the remainder were from the 1969 sessions.

    What did they do with the real VU? Another lastfm blunder...

    Imagine if all the tracks were 'Never Gonna Give You Up' by Rick Astley. Changing the subject, this record sounds very much unlike The Velvet Underground but in a nice way.

    I'm looking for VU. Well, I guess that "I Can't Stand It." Also, what's up with th 30' snippets? If I want to purchase something, I need more than an attitude of "th consumer must be kept on a need-to-know basis."

    The reason it's hidden is because it sucks
