Format: Audio CD
As a fan, I rate this higher than your average listener probably would. For me it's essential although VU, their other compilation of non-album tracks, is much more so. I can understand why someone might accuse the Velvet's instrumentation of being rudimentary or why they might dislike Lou Reed's occasionally (and gleefully) overextended voice. But the Velvet Underground is loved for being raw, unflinchingly real, positively fearless and sometimes even darkly humorous. Lou Reed wrote about whatever he wanted including the drug life and other subjects that garanteed alienation from the mainstream of the 60s. Today, the world has finally caught up with them and they've even been inducted into the Rock n Roll hall of fame.
"We're Gonna Have A Real Good Time Together" - a perfect opener, this one is very upbeat and straight to the point. Spirited strumming, hand claps and "Na, na, nas" all add to the fun. *****
"I'm Gonna Move Right In" - a laid-back and groovy shuffle, this instrumental track showcases Sterling Morrison's ample improvisational skills. Someone pointed out to my initial surprize that VU were occasionally were occasionally similar to their perceived musical opposites The Grateful Dead. I dare say it's true, the main justification for the comparison being Mr. Morrison's playing. *****
"Hey Mr. Rain (version 1)" - If New York City art-punks were prone to rain dancing during times of draught, this is what they might play: a strange loping tune with trippy viola from original Velvet John Cale. ***1/2
"Ride Into The Sun" - This track is simplicity itself and exquisitely pretty. Quite different from the song it would later become with vocals by Doug Yule who became Cale's replacement.

Don't listen to amazon's reviewers or whoever that other person up there is. So maybe you get an extra Mr. Rain. Big deal. This is really a cool extention of the studio albums that blends the Cale-Yule transtion nicely. "Real Good Time Together" is my favorite hand-clapping speed freak Velvets song, and this version is really cool because Moe sings on it. "Ride Into The Sun" is a trippy kandy-colored instrumental that's nothing like the other versions that have words (I recommend lighting that afternoon smoke to this one and kicking back). "Coney Island Steeplechase" is one of those summer Saturday breakfast cereal tunes that just begs to played on the way to the beach. "I'm Gonna Move Right In" is a jazzy theme that you won't find anywhere but bootlegs, and "Guess I'm Falling In Love" (the only studio version that I know of) is just mean, man. Plus, you get the typical edgy perverse stuff ("Ferryboat Bill", "Mr. Rain") and a rootsy pre-Loaded "Rock And Roll"....A great rare Velvets mix for anyone who wants to get deep or just feel good.

i need to hear "coney island steeplechase"!!! "come on and take a ride with me on the coney island steeple..." the song has been running through my mind for months when i'm with my kids or when we're at coney island, i guess that's folk music, it's funny, the banana album is the liminal album for me, the one i grew up listening to with my friends, whose songs we all covered, the songs have incredible resonance, ach, sentimental melodies, but what i'm saying is this: the velvet songs we love to sing are the ditties like "i'm sticking with you...," "sweet jane," or "if you close the door...", all right, it's okay, you can be blown away by "severin, severin, speaks so slightly..." but the best of the lullabies is on this album (and my albums are still at my parents, "away from the big cd...")!!!

This album is a great filling up between 'White Light' and 'The Velvet Underground' albums. You can hear the songs which could be on White Light (Mr Rain, Guess I'm Falling in love) and other ones for the later albums. Guess I'm Falling in love is better than the live versions !!!! It's just a pure and raw instrumental.THere are some other beatifull instrumentals too on the album: ride into the sun, ... By the way, don't miss 'Mr. Rain VERSION 2', cause it's way better than the first version (on peel slowly and see). Dont' know why they didn't put this version on the box. But, well a true Velvet fan needs both.

late era vault tapes from one of rock's most seminal bands. A few early outtakes have some Cale on them, but the songs are so lame, who cares? Annoying version one of "Hey Mr. Rain" ruins the marginally better version two, "Real Good Time Together" isn't any better here than it is on Reed's solo album, and you can do without the original "Rock and Roll" that's here too. "Ferryboat Bill" is of some amusement, but one nugget out of nine? If you have to have unreleased Velvets, "VU" is the album to buy, in fact its a must have. Novices, don't start here-fans, buy something influenced by the Velvets instead.

Most Velvet fans want all their recordings. I know I do. In order to do this, you must buy all four studio albums, including the Fully Loaded version of Loaded, Peel Slowly and See ( Box Set ),Live With Lou Reed Vol. 1 and 2, Live at Max's Kansas City, Live 1993, VU, and this CD, Another View. Of all the others named, this album is the least essential. All the songs are good, but not great like almost everything else the velvets did. If you are a big fan and/or a completist, this album is essential.
