SOME REVIEWS FROM FANS THAT GOT IT ALREADY!!
Picked up the book today and had a first brief look at it. What an amazing work you have done! So much material never seen for me! It’s simply the best VU book I have seen and a must for all die-hard VU fans!
Thank you very much for the tremendous work you have done!
All the best
your book arrived mon 7-absolutely wonderful book which arrived in excellent condition
very well packaged-thanks
A new way to understand The Velvet Underground… reading articles and seeing advertisements from a time when the band was still active. After a while, I found myself in a time machine, turning each page to read where they going next and what’s being said about their performances… not in hind-sight, but as if in real time. This book is a brilliantly assembled and a beautiful finished VU bible. The CD with its Music Factory interviews filled a final void in my completist collection. Bravo! Applause!! Standing Ovation!!!

The MASTERPIECE had arrived.
I had NO idea just how much material you had compiled. Really incredible!!…. the amount of original material you discovered is beyond belief…
Awesome, really awesome. A perfect companion to Richie Unterbergers Day by Day. It cannot get any better!
Thanks so much, dear Alfredo!
I want to thank you so much for this wonderful book!!!
It has arrived on monday and everything is perfect!
This book is really of so much work. It will stand in a row with the one’s of Kugelberg and Unterberger.
You really have done a pleasure to all Velvet-collectors! Amazing!!!
Not only your research and collection, your patience is extraordinary. And the one’s of your family!
You have done the right thing! I will keep it safe and as something extra-special.
And, of course, I will spend a lot of hours, reading it. But by the first look, this will take its time.
Even some parts of the cd are new to me. And I love it. It sounds very fresh to me.
Just a quick one to inform you that I just recieved the ‘Inevitable’ book this morning.
I just had the time to flip through the pages once this afternoon, but I can already tell you’ve done an incredibly huge job here – this book tops everything ever published on the Velvet Underground.
Your book arrived this morning – thank you very much – quick shipping.
Its FANTASTIC, great design and looks beautiful (reminded me of the Quine cd set) – so many fantastic items that i haven’t seen and much for the die hard VU’er to admire and learn from.
I just got my copy. All I can say is WOW! I’m sure copies will skyrocket on ebay once everything s sold. It was worth every penny and look forward to digging into this! A wonderful job!
