Its Just the Wasted Years So Close Behind

In December 1965, Barbara Rubin took Andy Warhol to see The Velvet Underground at the Café Bizarre in
Greenwich Village. He liked them. They started rehearsing at the Factory. During the next few months Warhol taped almost three hours of rehearsals and performances by the band.

Miss Joanie Lee, recorded in January 1966, is one of three unreleased songs recorded at that time that were
to have been included in the 'Deluxe Edition' mono and stereo double CD of The Velvet Undergroud & Nico. An
unspecified legal dispute led to the track being dropped.

But you can download the 12 minute "Miss Joanie Lee' here.
