Just watched Derek’s segment on Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet about cracking copy-protected CDs. How often do you get to see one of your friends introduced on national television with the leader, “Is this man a criminal?”
The Velvet Underground box set is a nice piece of work – the remastering definitely yields a better sounding result than the original Verve-edition CDs I had. It’s particularly noticable on the last two albums. The fifth disc of really early demos are… um… of archival interest only. Not particularly listenable. A lot of the extra material on the other discs is great though.
Currently compiling my 2002 Best Of music list, it should be done tonight, maybe tomorrow.
