Squeeze is the fifth and final studio album released by The Velvet Underground. It features no members of the Lou Reed-era group other than t Doug Yule, who wrote and recorded the album almost entirely by himself. Yule had joined the Velvet Underground prior to recording their self-titled third album, replacing founding member John Cale, and had contributed significantly to the fourth album, Loaded.

Most people have never heard the album - it’s been buried and rarely heard, so it’s been accepted as common knowledge that it’s awful and the truth is, it’s not. Now, it’s not great, it may not even be good, and in many ways, it is indeed a bit of a sacrilege to what Lou, John, Sterling, and Mo created, a comparison Doug Yule courts by going out of his way to create a commercial rewrite of Loaded, almost following its flow and topics track by track.

After White Light/White Heat John Cale was kicked off the band by Lou Reed, who hired Doug Yule, referring to him as a more skilled bass player and a decent singer, who he was, indeed.

Although "Squeeze" was released nominally as a Velvet Underground album, it could justifiably be regarded as a Doug Yule solo album in all but name. The eleven songs that make up "Squeeze" were written by Yule and recorded with the help of Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice, with additional occasional saxophone and backing singer assistance. They range from Beatles-like whimsy ("Crash") via pop to typical 70s rock ("Mean Old Man"). Squeeze" saw a number of re-issues in France during the 1970s and early 1980s. It has been out of print since, and has not been issued on compact disc. The status of "Squeeze" in the Velvet Underground's recorded canon is generally regarded as dubious; the 1995 Velvets boxed set "Peel Slowly and See" includes the four studio albums from the Lou Reed era of the band, but excludes "Squeeze".

Squeeze is the fifth and final Velvet Underground album – however, it’s a Velvet Underground album in name only. The entire thing was recorded by Doug Yule with some sparse help from Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice and some session musicians. At this point in the band’s chronology, the only remaining member from the original Velvets lineup was drummer Maureen Tucker. Lou Reed, John Cale and Sterling Morrison had been replaced by Walter Powers, Doug Yule and Willie Alexander. However, most of these musicians didn’t appear on Squeeze at all – the band’s manager, Steve Sesnick, pared the band down.

Listen free to The Velvet Underground – Squeeze (Little Jack, Crash and more). Squeeze was the fifth (and last) studio album to be released under the Velvet Underground name. It was primarily written and recorded by singer-guitarist Doug Yule in a London recording studio, following the departures of Lou Reed and Sterling Morrison. Maureen Tucker, while still technically the band's drummer at this time, was not involved in the recording, reportedly due to cost-cutting measures.

I’ve no idea why I purchased this album, other than I was in the right place at the right time, and knew that the single dollar that was being asked for this pristine collector’s piece only, was worth far more than all the money I had in my pockets.Recorded in the UK with no other members from the Lou Reed era Velvet Underground, except multi instrumentalist Doug Yule who managed to secure the band’s name, or stole it, though listeners might just want to consider this a Doug Yule solo project, because he wrote all of the songs and laid down all of the instrumental tracks, with Ian Price of Deep Purple showing up on drums, along with a couple of guests who added saxophone and backup vocals.Anything one thinks they know of The Velvet Underground flies right out the window on this mostly flat and unlistenable addition, as it is a Velvet Underground release in name only, though all these years later, there are those such as The Huffington Post who claim, “If you pluck it from the shackles of its murky backstory, ‘Squeeze’ is nothing short of a quintessential listening experience.”[/b] And there we have it, bury anything in the sand for ten thousand years and it’s going to become priceless, which is the course now being charted by unknown hands for [i]Squeeze, and I say ‘unknown’ because I know of no one who’s listened to this combination of odd pop, rock and charm lacking Beatle-ish material more than once. Had the record come out under the banner of any other band name, it would have gone nowhere and been instantly forgotten.Of course the argument that many make is that Yule stepped in proficiently to take the place of John Cale in a trial by fire of sorts, especially when one considers that Yule was asked to lay down the vocals for the opening track “Candy Says.” Though to this reviewer, that only gives more weight to my assumption, because whatever he did, he did with the remaining Velvets to back him up and create his atmosphere. Here on Squeeze, there is no atmosphere, no direction and no hint that Doug came from ardently one of the most influential bands of all time. Of course others would counter this by saying that at the end the Velvet Underground was splintered and fragmented, with Cale having dropped out, Maurine Tucker on maternity leave and also disillusioned, Sterling Morrison could be found sitting undefined in the background, leaving more of the day to day activities to Reed and Yule. Be that as it may, that still does not make Doug Yule one of the primary architects of The Velvets, even if his collaboration with Reed was a close one.So yes, Doug Yule was more than a competent bass player, and that leaves Squeeze as nothing more than a series of character studies that lack the phrasing and believability of Lou Reed … meaning that Yule was not merely attempting to extend the life of the band, he was attempting to capitalize on something that was not his to sell.*** The Fun Facts: According to Chris Difford, the British band Squeeze took their band name from this album, also claiming that he found the record enchanting.
