rewind: unearthed velvet

Now for a couple of obscure tracks that really deserve to be heard: First seen as my inaugural post on Realm of |X|, they date from Lou Reed's pre Velvet Underground days, with all the raw exuberance and humour of that band's previously released "previously unreleased" material:

These songs are from an Australian vinyl bootleg titled "the velvet underground -etc." and as far as I know have never been released officially. One day I hope to share the entire album plus a companion release titled "the velvet underground (and so on)" although a number of the tracks have subsequently turned up on various Velvets compilations...

Cycle Annie by the Beachnuts
You're Drivin' Me Insane by the Primitives
(more details here)

These two tracks were ripped from a well worn tape.
If anyone out there can point me to a better quality rip of this record, the world will be a better place (and we all know it needs to be)!
