1968 was a tumultuous year for the Velvet Underground, with the departure of John Cale, the addition of Doug Yule, a gruelling touring schedule and considerable musical transition.

Supported by the MC5, the quartet played their final shows of the year at the Boston Tea Party, which Lou Reed once described as his favourite place to play. This legendary live recording finds them playing reworked versions of early classics as well as several songs that would appear on their forthcoming third album, and two tracks that went unreleased in their lifetime.

It's presented here together with background notes and photographs.
