Velvet Underground – Sterling Morrison’s Charge Invoice from Max’s Kansas City, From Velvets Final Shows

A Max’s Kansas City invoice for food and drink made on account by the late Velvet Underground guitarist Sterling Morrison.

Morrison and the Velvets were frequent customers at Max’s, where the band played their last series of concerts with Lou Reed at the end of August 1970 (their Live At Max’s Kansas City album was recorded during these shows.)  This invoice, mailed to Morrison at his apartment on Christopher Street in New York City, is for charges likely made during the band’s final engagement; it lists a balance due of $102.38, and November charges of $17.05.   As Morrison charged only a small amount during November and had a large outstanding balance, it’s almost certain the balance due dated from the Velvets summer residency.  The original envelope is postmarked December 1970.

This receipt is from Morrison’s legendary archive, and comes with Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee, noting this was acquired from Sterling Morrison’s widow, Martha Morrison.  Invoice 5 1/2″ x 8″.
