Info for Live At Max's Kansas City (Expanded & Remastered)

Originally released as part of the 45th anniversary edition “Loaded” box set in 2015, this expanded remaster of the legendary live recording from Max’s Kansas City is now released in 96 kHz, 24bit.

Live at Max's Kansas City is the original punk rock live record, and now Rhino has released two complete sets from the night of August 23, 1970, adding seven tracks (six unreleased) to the original album's 10. White Light White Heat; I'm Set Free; Sweet Jane; Who Loves the Sun; Candy Says; Some Kinda Love , and Lonesome Cowboy Bill appear here for the first time. Definitely a walk on the wild side.

„The Velvet Underground is known for being groundbreaking, and they prove it with their simplicity. You don’t have to be complicated to shake up the status quo. We know that very well now, but it is thanks to them that we have that creative knowledge. As time goes, the influence of this band will only continue to unroll, and with this album we have the opportunity to peer into their lives and music as it was then.” (Consequence of Sound)

The Velvet Underground
were an avant-garde New York City band whose unconventional and screeching sounds paved and shaped the roads of “underground” Rock and Roll. Beginning in small clubs and bars around NYC, the band originally enjoyed a cult like following of dedicated fans, who rejoiced in a sound that, at the time, was deemed “undanceable” and ludicrous by mainstream media. Eventually, the band emerged from the cracks and shadows of Greenwich Village to form a union with the infamous Andy Warhol, whose notoriety catapulted the group of experimentalists to new and unseen heights. As they linked up to travel the Unites States, they overwhelmed audiences everywhere with a surreal concoction of images, films, lighting effects, and music, known as The Exploding Plastic Inevitable tour. Warhol also introduced the band to the young Nico, creating a partnership that went on to produce the coveted “The Velvet Underground & Nico” album, which is considered one of the most influential albums of all time. Fifty years later and The Velvet Underground’s works continue to inject their nonconformist and unique sounds into the ears of indie kids around the globe. With not only a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction under their belt but also four albums in the Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all Time, The Velvet Underground still influences a younger generation of artists, who one can only hope will uphold the underground’s tradition of challenging and piercing the conventional boundaries of not only music, but creativity as a whole.

This album contains no booklet.
