The Booker T

Here’s the Velvet Underground being as funky as in this wig out tribute to the great piano/organ player. The Booker T started out as a live jam that the band would play when Lou Reed was ill. It later evolved into the instrumental track to the story of the hapless Waldo Jeffers on The Gift included on the second album White Light White Heat. The version included here was recorded live at The Gymnasium in NYC in April 1967. It is included on the bootleg,  Psychedelic Sounds From The Gymnasium but only the cd version and also came out as a bootleg 7″.
