This set compiles 4 audience recordings of Velvet Underground shows at the Boston Tea Party in 1969.

January 10, March 13, and July 11 are from the famous 'Professor' reels (two others exist: December 12, 1968 at The Boston Tea Party, and August 2, 1969 at Hilltop Festival).

March 15 is also known as "The Guitar Amp Tape".

"Move Right In" on disc 2 is from January 10 recording and should be placed between "Heroin" and "I'm Set Free".

"Candy Says" on disc 4 is from March 15 recording and should be placed between "I Can't Stand It" and "Waiting For The Man".

Despite the back cover reading otherwise, disc 1 actually has 9 tracks (no track separation between "Heroin" and "I'm Set Free, same between "What Goes On" and "I Can't Stand It"), and disc 4 has 11 tracks (track 1 "Intro" is not listed).

Disc 3 is particularly interesting. Also known as "The Legendary Guitar Amp Tape" (the original cover was misprinted as "Legendaly,") it's a strange recording because someone thought it would be a good idea to hide the microphone inside Lou Reed's Guitar Amp. The result should have been predictable - a recording of Lou's guitar with the rest of the music in the background. The end result, though, is fascinating, as Lou does his best to mangle a perfectly good guitar.
