Standing On The Corner....

Even people who generally do not appreciate the music of The Velvet Underground will testify to the greatness of Sweet Jane. Apparently this was Reed's attempt at writing a hit for the Velvet Underground, who as we all know were highly influential, but were completely commercially overlooked. Originally released without the coda we finally got to hear the track as intended on '95's Peel Slowly box set. It is quite simply a seminal track that has one of the best riffs ever recorded.

Velvet Underground - Sweet Jane


  1. It is a brilliant track, was listening to the live 1969 album on the plane yesterday. My favourite track though's got to be Lisa Says.

  2. Lisa Says is a great track also. Although are either as good as the track you posted today ? Be My Baby is just perfection.
