Velvet Underground – The Complete Matrix Tapes captures highlights from two evenings of the group’s 18-night 1969 residency at the fabled San Francisco club Matrix, set-up in 1964 in an abandoned pizza parlour.

The shows were recorded between the release of the groups’ third, self-titled Velvet Underground album earlier that year and the creation of Loaded the following spring.

Initially only available as a CD box set, the record makes its vinyl debut as a limited edition, 8xLP, 43-track box set. Coming 12th July via Polydor/UMe
