This January 10 1969 show was the way I liked them: kinda rough and creepy, Richman says. The performance is also downright sublime. The Velvets shift effortlessly from the lowdown noise boogie of Run Run Run and White Light/White Heat to hymn-like renditions of I’m Set Free and Candy Says. Also on the bill during the VU’s early January Tea Party run were the radical Lower East Side folkies the Holy Modal Rounders. Interestingly, the Rounders’ Peter Stampfel recalls the Velvets playing Rock & Roll at one of the shows (sadly not the one taped) - which would’ve been one of the very first performances of this future classic. I never heard the song before, and besides knocking me out, I could understand all the words of the song, Stampfel told VU scholar Richie Unterberger in White Light/White Heat: The Velvet Underground Day-By Day.
VELVET UNDERGROUND 1969-01-10 Boston 1st generation "professor" audience recording NO FLAC ERRORS. disc 1. D101: Heroin (8:25). January 10th 1969 was the second show of another 3 night stay at the Velvets "second home", the Boston Tea Party. Some minor changes from the Dec 12 68 show but basically the same set. Also a slightly better quality recording - the vocals and instruments are all reasonably clear even if there isn't much dynamic range and the sound is very "boxy". The 3rd LP wouldn't be released till March, but there are 5 songs from it here.

The Boston Tea Party was a concert venue located at 53 Berkeley Street (later relocated to 15 Lansdowne Street in the former site of competitor, the Ark) in the South End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. It operated from 1967 to early 1971. In 1968 the first album fm rock station in Boston, WBCN, began broadcasting out of the back room of the Tea Party and went on to be the highest rated rock station in the market. WBCN was owned by the same owners as the Tea Party. In 1968 Don Law assumed the management of the Tea Party and Law began bringing it major acts from England. "The Velvet Underground : The Boston Tea Party – January, 1969".
