Velvet Underground's Loaded Getting Re-Loaded For Deluxe Reissue

(Classic Rock) 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.
