Again, I don't know how long this one will be permitted to remain, that one from the other day is still there and has been hit HARD, and if you liked that one, well, check out THIS six disc reissue of "The Velvet Underground", the band's third album.....a stark contrast to the incredible onslaught that was "White Light White Heat", this album was a Lou Reed-dominated effort, focusing on quieter numbers "What Goes On" and "Beginning to See the Light" and the highly experimental (I guess that's the word) "The Murder Mystery", but it is the mountain of alternate takes, rare mixes, live stuff, and more, that is the true prize here.....not for everyone, certainly not for the dabbler, but if the Velvet Underground is perhaps one of your favorite bands of all time and you cannot get enough of their incredible work (like myself), this, like everything else I've put up from them/related to them over the years is absolutely, 100% essential, period.

Get it while you can, just saying.........although this is never a band whose material has caused me issue, this is a fairly recent release and I COULD see someone taking offense, and, should they, of course, as is my policy, it will be removed STAT.
