- "THE VELVET UNDERGROUND" - SOUTH BANK SHOW
In September, 1985, London Weekend Television's South Bank Show gathered together the troops for one last time: John, Moe, Sterling and Nico all met together for interviews, while Lou was interviewed separately. Brodcasted 4/27/86, this is an excellent hour long history of the band, with clips from Symphony, EPI and the Bataclan show. Other interviews include Brigid Polk, Victor Bockris, Gerard Malanga and Robert Christgau.
- "FEED-BACK : THE VELVET UNDERGROUND STORY" - ARSENAL SHOW
This is the video companion to the book Feed-Back. Made September 1986, this is more of a tribute to the band than a straight history. There are clips from Symphony, EPI and the Bataclan show, along with a soundtrack of rare unreleased VU music, culminating brilliantly with Sterling in 1986 overdubbing guitar onto an odd 1984 Cale version of "Waiting".
- NICO : LIVE IN PRAGUE
Handheld, rough sights and sounds, but an important, thrilling video. The Velvet Underground played an important role in Czechoslovakia's search for artistic freedom, and Nico's 10/4/85 concert was the first appearance by any of the VU members in Prague. A major moment, and Nico is in fine form (as on the Iron Curtain LP) with a find band. 1 hour, VG-.
- NICO : LIVE IN TOKYO
A fine, professionally-shot video that serves as the film of the 1986 Live In Tokyo LP. 1 hour VG.
- JOHN CALE : LIVE ROCK PALAST 1984
John rips up the floor with that wild 1984 band of his. 1 hour, VG-.

- LOU REED CLIPS 1988-1989
- E.P.I. & CHUMLUM
Experimental double bill. E.P.I. is Ronald Nameth's short (27 minutes), color impression of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable live in Chicago in the summer of 1966. Very little of VU is shown here (20 sec. maybe), but it's a fascinating, one-time-only line-up : John (vocals, keyboards), Sterling (guitar), Moe (bass), and original drummer Angus MacLise returns on tablas. Lou was sick in hospital; it was during the rehearsals for this show that this lineup kicked up the music to "Sister Ray". Two live song are featured in the soundtrack; the rest is from first LP. Chumlum is Ron Rice's 1964 odd 22 minute film. Music by Angus, engineered by Tony Conrad.

- VELVET UNDERGROUND 1966
Finely transferred clips from the band, live & wild in their early prime : the musical segment from A Symphony Of Sound, Nico's great "Frozen Warnings" clip that has lots of Factory footage, the VU at the Psychiatrists Convention, the EPI film, and a TV story about Warhol that shows clips from that rarest of videos : the CBS "Making of an Underground Film". Note : all this comes from the best available sources, taken directly from film or video masters, and not filmed off a tv screen, as all other available versions of the Symphony are. 2 hours.
- VELVET UNDERGROUND 1990
Up to date as we can get with the VU : here's a collection of video healined by Cartier's official recording of the 1990 concert. Two cameras, great sound and editing make this best video by far of the 1990 set. It's the complete concert : John and Lou's set, and then the reunion "Heroin". Complete and magnifique! Then more : the MTV news reports (music and interviews) as well as those of Canadian MTV (different news reports and interviews). Bonus : solo Sterling overdubbing "I'm Waiting For The Man" in Spain in 1985, and UK "Rapido" TV clips on Drella and the VU. 1 hour.
