Velvet Underground Detail Re-Loaded

Loaded 45th anniversary box set will feature 5CDs and a DVD

The Velvet Underground's 1970 album Loaded is to be reissued in a deluxe box set.

Loaded: Re-Loaded 45th Anniversary Edition is released on October 30 in a six-disc (5CD, 1DVD) box set featuring stereo and mono versions of the original record along with bonus demos, early versions and alternate mixes.

It also comes packaged with a remastered and re-edited version of the Live at Max’s Kansas City album, a previously unreleased May 1970 Philadelphia concert and two high-resolution Loaded mixes. Surround sound mixes in DTS and Dolby Digital are also included.

The Philadelphia gig was recorded by fan Bob Kachnycz who, according to a statement from label Atlantic Catalog Group, "hitchhiked to the show and recorded it on reel-to-reel.” The show was performed as a three-piece by the band as Moe Tucker was pregnant. Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison and Doug Yule alternated between bass and drums.

Re-Loaded is available for pre-order now and is the latest in a series of deluxe Velvet Underground reissues. The box set of White Light/White Heat came out in 2013 and the 45th anniversary edition of The Velvet Underground arrived in 2014.
