AllMusic Review by

American Velvet, Vol. 1: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground features 12 lovingly rendered VU cuts (and one, non-VU original) from the likes of former Go-Go Jane Wiedlin (“Foggy Notion”), punk rock politician/T.S.O.L. leader Jack Grisham (“Coney Island Steeple Chase”), and the inimitable Jonathan Richman, the latter of whom provides copious liner notes, as well his own “Velvet Underground” taken from his 1992 solo album, I, Jonathan.
