I really couldn’t help myself. I probably have virtually all of the tracks collected on the new 3xCD box set of “White Light/White Heat” somewhere; spread out on various bootlegs and downloads and whatnot. I wanted it anyway.
It sounds and of course looks amazing (full color book with flyers, photos and ephemera from the WL/WH version of the band) , and there are tracks that many of us, myself included, had not heard before, like an early version of “Beginning To See The Light” that John Cale plays on that’s amazing. So yeah, it’s a lot of $$ to hear new permutations of a record you’ve already played hundreds of times over a lifetime, but I have a hankerin’ that some of you are going to pull the trigger like I did anyway.
