John Cale: Saturday Music Club on Sunday

John Cale performing an excerpt from Erik Satie's "Vexations" as part of his appearance on I've Got a Secret (1963)

The Dream Syndicate: "Day of Niagara" (hint: this is the first of two to skip if you don't like minimalism that might well've also inspired Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music)

The Velvet Underground: "Loop" (the other one...and the first recording made commercially available, albeit in the avant-garde multimedia magazine project Aspen, to be attributed to the VU)

A film record, incorporating a minute or so of "Loop" but mostly Warhol-shot footage of VU playing "Run Run Run" in 1967.
"Fontana Mix" from Aspen, a soundtrack to a multilayered visual/textual item by Cale.

The Velvet Underground: "Sunday Morning"

The Velvet Underground: "The Gift"

Terry Riley and John Cale: "Church of Anthrax"

John Cale Band: "Fear is a Man's Best Friend"

John Cale Band: "Strange Times in Casablanca"

Brian Eno and John Cale: Wrong Way Up

Lou Reed and John Cale: "Faces and Names"

John Cale, Chrissie Hynde, Nick Cave: "Ship of Fools"
