Searchin For My Mainline

SEARCHIN' FOR MY MAINLINE

3-CD box set, Too Much/Just Right Productions for Diamonds In Your Ear, Germany, 1993

12x12 inch boxed set, hand-numbered limited edition of 500 copies, 200 more reissued in 1996. Includes extensive liner notes by Dr. Rawk and Michelle Yow, and a sticker. 16 added tracks compared with LP version, unfortunately the sound is overall inferior compare with the vinyl set.

Fierce Pup VU fanzine says: "The legendary Searchin' for my Mainline was issued in a 3 disc box. The vinyl edition of this set, which features all live tracks from '66 to '86, has long been out of print. It was touted by many as the definitive VU boot. Its re-emergence on CD allows fans the opportunity to own some of the wildest, live VU ever recorded and a few oddities. While digital technology improves on the quality of the original vinyl, we're still dealing with some lo-fi sources here so don't expect miracles. The CDs' extented recording time permits the addition of many tracks not on the vinyl edition, although there is a glaring omission: Moe and Jonathan's I'm Sticking With You."

Notes: limited numbered edition of 1000. 20-page booklet with photographs and liner notes. "The ultimate rare collection includes soundtracks, demos, acetates, rehearsals, unreleased and more...".

Sal Mercuri says: "Just when you thought it was safe...

I've come to realize that it will never end. Things will get to a point where we all will lose track of what's been put out and bootlegged and just start believing that everything that comes out is new! Well there's very little in this set that is 'new'. That doesn't mean it is without merit. The package is very slick, professional looking, if somewhat unimaginative. The Peel Slowly and See sized box includes a numbered insert card with extract of judicial decision regarding question of legality. I guess it's presented in defense of the bootleggers.

The booklet's essay provides nothing in the way of information about specific tracks and nothing new. It reprints some fairly common photos; many of which come, rather inexplicably, from the 1993 reunion although there's not one track from that tour.

Inside the box are 3 jewel cases enclosing the 5 discs grouped thus: 1 and 2 So Blue; 3 and 4 Afterhours; 5 VU a Paris. The CD liners and tray cards contain color and black and white photos and each disc is imprinted with a rather dopey looking brocade upholstery motif which is the background graphic of the box. Sound quality is generally very good owing to the sources which are mostly demos and acetates (and in some cases, official recordings). Sound suffers when sources are tapes and older vinyl. Almost nothing new in this set except the inclusion of some tracks which have previously only been available on tapes and vinyl bootlegs. It is generally a very handy set which collects some of the more interesting 'non-live' material from some no-longer available vinyl bootlegs in their entirety. It is, however, a lazy production. The entire set could probably have made it onto 4 or even 3 discs with some judicious editing for example is there any need for the entire East Village Other when there's only about 30 seconds worth of VU on it? Also, why not include the entire Drella set from Cartier 1990 instead of 15 tracks of John and Lou's soundcheck?

Not a perfect set but not a total rip-off either and of course the die-hard psychos (like this writer) will go and plunk down $100 to $125 smackers for it just to have another neat Velvet Underground box in our already bloated collections."
