one of the most beautiful live in the history of music
Nico on the side, Lou & John dos à dos, (Yves Adrien période long hair aux commentaires)
Le Bataclan pour arène
jamais plus rien d'aussi beau dans le 11ème arrondissement de Paris
seulement, du sang et des larmes
en lieu et place de la beauté du rêve du droit d'échouer

Specifically, Tracks 1 to 14 need to have their speed (both pitch and tempo) increased by 7.2%. Verified by comparing waveforms to the audio from the video of the performance. Tracks 15 and 16 need to be increased by approximately 2.9%. You can rip it and use Audacity to fix it.

Nico's songs are the real wowsers on this recording. Not essential but worth hearing as a frozen moment.

If you are a fan of either Lou Reed, John Cale, Nico or The Velvet Underground then by all means this is a must.

I agree with the previous comment, this is a poor quality release. Makes me wondering if Alchemy Entertainment's releases are official stuff... It looks suspicious to me...

Alchemy Entertainment should be ashamed of this release. This was the #1 show that VU fans wanted to be released officially and when it finally was, this is what we got: a recording that is anywhere from 10% to 15% too slow. Someone in the mastering booth must've fallen asleep and allowed their elbow to hit the pitch control dial because the entire recording sounds like a cassette being eaten by a tape deck. Make no mistake about it... this recording is untenable. There are bootlegs of the show available that were taken from the soundboard and sound pristine (this one comes to mind):

http://www.discogs.com/Lou-Reed-John-Cale-Nico-Bataclan/release/3439796

Why Alchemy couldn't release an official product at least as good as readily available bootlegs is beyond me. Obviously someone was not paying attention when this was release which is a shame because the bootleg versions are becoming harder and harder to find and I think most people would prefer an official release to a bootleg pressing. Yes, if you have pitch control software, you can rip the disc and correct the audio by increasing the pitch, but why should you have to?

The bottom line is this: the performance presented on this release is truly unlistenable. I know that the fidelity of live shows can vary, but this is truly not worth owning -- even for a VU completist. Do yourself a favor and search out the far superior bootleg version.
