Here is probably my favourite Velvet Underground track. I'm not sure why, I love the lazy almost plodding tempo of the track it sort of gets under my skin. Lou Reed later re-recorded the track along with a few other Velvets songs for his first solo album but that version loses all the subtlety and is vastly inferior to this one.
I have a feeling that Michael and Margo Timmings had listened to this track a few times before they covered Sweet Jane on The Trinity Sessions.
