(1967, sound, color, 33 mins. Dir: Andy Warhol) has recently been discovered.
Newly found footage shot by Warhol of the VU and the Exploding Plastic Inevitable
at the Boston Tea Party in 1967 offers a tantalizing view of the legendary group live on stage. The actual quality of the film is decent, although the sound is muddy and the psychedelic light show combined with Warhol's gimmicky camerawork make it difficult to make out much of the band playing. Still, it's the most footage available of a group that never saw a set filmed with sound until their 1993 reunion
Probably for die-hards only, but enjoy!
