On December 3, Universal Music will reissue The Velvet Underground’s 1968 album White Light / White Heat with “I’m Not A Young Man Anymore” being one of the tracks on the three disc release. The release was co-curated by John Cale and Lou Reed prior to the latter’s death in October. The 30-track collection includes mono and stereo versions of the album plus bonus material, including new mixes as well as alternate and unreleased outtakes.
Recorded at New York venue the Gymnasium on April 30, 1967, the live version of the song is rumoured to be the only time the band played “I’m Not A Young Man Anymore” at a gig. Written by Lou Reed, the song was never officially released by the band nor does it appear on any other live bootlegs.
