If you''re looking for a breakthrough documentary, folks, this ain''t it -- although there are some great interview moments with longtime member Maureen Tucker and some early VU clips you may not have seen already. Largely, this is just a march through all of the albums, in chrono order, with a mix of rock critics, band friends, and business associates -- and Mo -- all opining on the band''s history, turning points, inner conflicts, stylistic development, significance, influences, and influence, with special attention paid to generally-agreed-upon landmarks like "Venus in Furs", "Heroin" and "Sister Ray". Most of the reviewers manage some real insights: Billy Name offers a wonderful recollection of exactly how Lou Reed came to choose the mysterious cover art for White Light/White Heat and what that choice meant in the context of the band''s work at the time, and the notoriously self-absorbed Robert Christgau manages to get off one useful observation. The name Le Monte Young is even mentioned in passing, and we see and hear a very young John Cale performing a Cage work for piano. Nobody embarrasses themselves, and I found myself muttering "yep, right, that''s good" at most of the comments. But the bulk of it will probably be of most interest to folks who are either new to the band or who have never thought hard about its impact.

This was pretty Cool. Peoples opinions about the band--etc.
Where honest--and dead on. Only Doug Yule and Maureen Tucker
appear in this. --which is better than a lot in these "Under Review"--Series.
Ideas of Songs,--Etc. Playing Live--etc. Again--How people viewed the
band, and maybe why--they didn''t become hugh like a lot of people though
they should have been. Kinda like the Ramones.
Yet I have a friend who said this once--It wasn''t cool to like the
Velvet Underground--till Lou Reed had a solo Career.
For some there maybe some truth in that statement. But I still think and
feel that the Velvets where a unique band--who''s time has come now, but didn''t
then.

What goes on here? The line "contains unreleased live and studio music" is totally wrong!!! There is no live music at all and the studio tracks have all been released previously.The live "clips" of the early band are the same 2 or 3 15 second shots with no sound shown a few times.A picture book would give the same look at the band menbers and the various memorabilia.

The Mo and Doug Yule interviews are interesting.It was also nice to see what a toe-f@@ker looks like - listen to Lou''s "Take No Prisoners"

No Lou Reed. No John Cale.

I wish I had waited to buy it used instead of pre-ordering it.

I''m going to do something that shouldn''t be as radical as it ought to be: actually review the DVD that was released, instead of a fictional DVD of the imagination that most of the other reviewers here bizarrely believe that it should have been.

VELVET UNDERGROUND and CAPTAIN BEEFHEART were the first two of a series of DVD that are intended to be critical analyses of the music of the band in question. I''m not sure where anyone would have gotten the impression that it was supposed to be a documentary in any other sense than that, but all the complaints I see lodged here are aimed at qualities that were never intended to be in the film to begin with. The aim of the series was go examine the music through a presentation of some archival film footage and extensive critical discussion. That is precisely what the DVD delivers. In fact, most DVD reviewers gave this disc glowing reviews when it was released.

I''m one of those odd birds who actually read critics. One of my favorite critics, Robert Christgau, is one of the more prominently consulted individuals in the film. I was overall enormously impressed with the insight the various individuals consulted regarding the Velvets'' music. Only one truly ignorant statement was made in the course of the film, which is usual for a film of this type. Oddly, the truly awful statement was made by a critics I usually have a great deal of regard for, Clinton Heylin, author of the well known rock study FROM THE VELVETS TO THE VOIDOIDS. He says bald-faced that "Venus in Furs" is the most important rock single after "Heartbreak Hotel." One hardly knows what to make of such a statement, especially given that the one major acknowledged influence on the Velvets was Bob Dylan and especially his single "Like a Rolling Stone," which is frequently and rightfully regarded as the most influential rock song in history. And just before Dylan released "Like a Rolling Stone" the Stones released "Satisfaction." I love "Venus in Furs," but it impossible for me to compare in any meaningful fashion the influence of that song to either the Dylan or Stones'' singles. But as I said, this was fortunately the exception rather than the rule in the DVD. Most of the reviewers (even Heylin) are otherwise very insightful in their comments on the album.

I strongly recommend this DVD to any fan of the Velvets. I''ve been listening to their music for over 30 years and I still learned a great deal about their music. I also recommend the series of DVDs as a whole. I would just ask potential viewers to keep in mind that these DVDs are focused on a critical evaluation of the music. They are not intended as biographical DVDs or attempts to present all the archival film footage that exists. I think those are great as well, but I welcome as much critical discussion of great music as possible.

I am a big Velvets fan but found this documentary to be rather mundane and uninspired. I also wanted to hear about Velvet related activity in the 70''s (ie solo Nico, solo Lou, solo Cale etc...)but no. This unoffical critical documentary just deals with the four studio albums. And Mo''s the only original Velvet available for comment.

For such an avant-garde band you would think they would interview some avant-garde spirits but mainly you get Mo Tucker reminiscing. She really gives most of the credit for the bands sound to John Cale. You also get the very staid Doug Yule (John Cale''s replacement) who is likable (and who we learn did provide the vocals on "Candy Says") but who admits to never havng been "in the loop" when band decisions were being made. It seems he was basically hired because the band needed a guitar player to tour with and he was a guy who was not going to cause any creative tension with the always contentious Lou. This was a band that had two leaders, Lou Reed and John Cale (who left band after second album), and neither of them say a word or are even quoted even once on this documentary. Mo is nice and provides a few interesting insights into how the bands dynamic changed with each line-up but she doesn''t provide anything like revelations about what happened between Cale and Reed.

We learn:

Album #1: Warhol promoted but did not produce the album. Band was basically forced to work with Nico. Most critics say "Venus in Furs" was the albums masterpice and that this song changed rock music. "Sunday Morning" was supposed to sung by Nico and this was supposed to be the song that would make it to radio but Lou sang it instead (one critic claimed that Lou sang it in a more feminine way than Nico could have). The album was recorded in 8 hours according to Mo and it sat on a shelf for a year before it was released.

Album #2: Many critics claim this is the "purest" Velvet record. Its certainly the hardest and the fastest. "White Light/White Heat" was written by Cale one morning during a snowstorm after a night of speed. "Sister Ray" is one of Mo''s all-time favorites.

Album #3: Mellowest record and a lot of people''s favorite. Yule''s favorite (perhaps because it was the first one he played on). Yule claims he likes it the best because they were a real fully functioning band playing well together when it was recorded. Critics say Cale''s departure allowed the band to explore their own talents as musicians (when Cale played everyone else was pushed into the background). One critic raves about the "What Goes On" dueling guitar parts and I would recommend you go listen to that right now. It is really cool.

Album #4: Most critics concede that the band was not getting along during the recording of this record and that this one was written to gain commercial attention and that its much too compromised. Mo does not drum on the record because she was pregnant at the time it was recorded. "Sweet Jane" was written to be a radio hit.

Some of these tidbits are useful but due to lack of interview candidates, various V.U. controversies and mysteries are aired but remain as unresolved as ever.

Also the video footage is grainy and none of it is particularly mesmerizing. I understand that old super-8mm footage isn''t going to be pristine but the breif splices of footage presented on this DVD are ridiculously blurry. You can tell its the Velvets but its not LIVE concert footage, rather the documentarians simply play the studio versions of the songs as they play a few seconds of grainy footage of Velvets just talking or hanging out or onstage. Most of the footage is Factory types dancing. Its pretty much a scrapbook collection, and a pretty scant one at that. Warholite Billy Name waxes about the iconic album covers that he designed.

If you want to know about the Velvets it is probably best to read the books they read and listen to their music etc....and write your own poetry and paint your own paintings while doing so. This will put you closer to the Velvet spirit than hearing club owners and record producers remember that night at Max''s Kansas City.

This is a fantastic documentary without the flash and fanfare of other music documentaries. It is very low key but riveting considering Lou Reed is not even in it! Apart from the band members interviews I found the testimonies of the fans extremely engaging and indepth as they projected how deeply they were affected by the albums as they heard them for the first time. The objectivity of the fans allows them to articulate the bands position in rock and roll history and their impact on music and popular culture and was a perfect balance with the bands own views on their work. I would highly recommend this documentary.
