John Cale, live at CBGB's, New York, 27th December 1978
I've posted a couple of gigs from the CBGB's club over the past couple of weeks, and here's another nice one to add to that run, multi-instrumentalist/singer/producer/Welshman John Cale, founder member of The Velvet Underground. This show was recorded during probably his most loved recording period, and although Helen of Troy was released by Island Records without his consent, they were what he called demos at that point, it's still highly regarded in his large catalogue. A couple of great covers too, his dark rendition of Heartbreak Hotel, and a version of Pablo Picasso (The Modern Lovers) which he produced in it's original form. Enjoy!
