The Velvet Underground Loaded: Re-Loaded 45th Anniversary Edition on Limited Edition 5CD + DVD Box Set

Classic Album Expanded As A 6-Disc Set w/ Stereo, Mono and Surround Mixes, Rarities, & Live Recordings including Unreleased 1970 Club Performance!

Jenny's life was saved by "Rock and Roll" in the classic Velvet Underground song of the same name. A similar fate has befallen many of those who've heard Loaded, the 1970 album that included the song. In 1997, the album's legend grew when Rhino introduced Fully Loaded, a double-CD with unreleased versions of every song on the original, and more. In the fall of 2015, one of the greatest albums of all time will return as a six-disc collection that includes: the original album remastered in both stereo and mono; a generous selection of demos, early versions and alternate mixes from that era; newly remastered/re-edited version of Live At Max's Kansas City; two high resolution mixes, plus a surround sound mix in DTS and Dolby Digital; and an unreleased May 1970 concert recorded in Philadelphia.

Remastered stereo and mono versions of the album fill out the first two discs, along with various outtakes, and the mono mixes for the unissued singles: "Rock & Roll" and "Lonesome Cowboy Bill." The third disc explores the creative process behind many of the songs on the album with more than 20 demos, early versions and alternate mixes. Also included is a remastered version of Live At Max's Kansas City, which was recorded at the storied New York nightclub on August 23, 1970, the day Lou Reed left the band. Along with the performances from the original 1972 album, the disc includes additional performances selected from the expanded version of the album that Rhino introduced in 2004.

Fans will be excited to hear the unreleased club performance featured on the fifth disc. It was recorded on May 9, 1970 at the Second Fret in Philadelphia by Bob Kachnycz, a fan who hitchhiked to the show and recorded it on reel-to-reel. The band was down to a trio that night: Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison and Doug Yule, who alternated between bass and drums to fill in for Moe Tucker, who was pregnant at the time. Loaded, which came out six months after the show, is well represented with seven songs, including: "Cool It Down," "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'" and "Sweet Jane."

The final disc is an audio only DVD that features three different mixes of Loaded: Surround Sound Remix in DTS and Dolby Digital; 96/24 High resolution Stereo Downmix; and 96/24 High resolution Original Stereo Mix. For the Surround Sound and Stereo Downmix, the original track listing has been re-sequenced slightly to include the segue that was originally planned for "I Found A Reason/Head Held High."
