Tracklisting: 1. White Light / White Heat 2. The Gift 3. Lady Godiva's Operation 4. Here She Comes Now 5. I Heard Her Call My Name 6. Sister Ray
VELVET UNDERGROUND Velvet Redux (2008 UK 'Sight & Sound' 2-disc album set - The Velvet Underground finally decided to call it quits in 1970 and the last thing anyone expected was to hear from them again but they reformed for a European reunion tour which raised expectations of a US tour. Tragically the band broke up once again before reaching the states, and shortly afterwards guitarist Sterling Morrison succumbed to cancer, leaving fans with this, their last recorded performance.

THE VELVET UNDERGROUND Squeeze (1972 UK first issue 11-track LP, a very unusual footnote to the Velvet Underground's career in that this seldom seen album features none of the original members! Mo Tucker toured with the band during this periodbut left shortly before the album was recorded & all songs are written and sung by Doug Yule who was featured heavily on the band's previous album Loaded, with all drumming duties performed by a certain Ian Paice of Deep Purple. Needless to say,

Tracklisting: the album sold in very small quantities and has remained an elusive item in the Velvet's catalogue ever since. Both the picture sleeve & vinyl are a lovely Near Mint)Little Jack Crash Caroline Mean Old Man Dopey Jo Wordless She'll Make You Cry Friends Send No Letter Jack And Jane Louise
VELVET UNDERGROUND The Velvet Underground & Nico (Essential 1967 US East Coast press blue & silver Verve label 11-track stereo LP, housed in the legendary Andy Warhol pasted gatefold sleeve with unpeeled banana sticker & no torso image on theback [airbrushed]. The label is a large 't' blue & silver Verve design with 'Side 1' & '2' to the lower left [East Coast design] & hand scratched matrices in the run-offs. This is wonderful collector's example & one of the best we've seen in many

Tracklisting: years. The vinyl has an incredible deep sheen both sides & we have given the record a professional clean for optimum playback. It is virtually impossible to find a copy of this album that doesn't show signs of play. Yes, there are some very faint hairlines in the odd area on close inspection but these are rendered purely cosmetic with the vinyl grading a healthy Excellent allround. The iconic sleeve grades Excellent with few signs of shelfwear, no deletion cuts, no writing or creasing & no signs of peeling to the banana. The spine is clear as day & the panels remain off white. Highly Recommended V6-5008)1. Sunday Morning 2. I'm Waiting for the Man 3. Femme Fatale 4. Venus in Furs 5. Run Run Run 6. All Tomorrow's Parties 7. Heroin 8. There She Goes Again 9. I'll Be Your Mirror 10. Black Angel's Death Song 11. European Son
