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!

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

  • Selling to us is easier than selling it yourself – If you have a collection of 30 records, that would be 30 different listings on Ebay, lots of questions to deal with, 20 different parcels to package (as at least 10 won't sell), dealing with items missing or damaged in the post and possible fraud. So often a daunting and time consuming task, it's much better to leave all that to us.
  • So if you want the best deal for your records, CDs or memorabilia, just call or email us today.
