Vinyl Record News & Music Notes

from our friends at Sundazed

The Velvet Underground Velvet Underground - 180 Gram LP

The original overview/collection from the legendary band. On Sundazed compact disc and 180gm vinyl, from the original masters. This title is available for pre-order and will ship to you by the street date of January 21, 2014 Originally released as part of MGM's "Golden Archive Series," this 1970 album (simply referred to as Velvet Underground) is a terrific sin-and-salvation selection from the first three VU albums – just the kind of thing to take along to a desert island or to the end of the world. It's essentially their earliest greatest hits collection, and the perfect encapsulation of their Verve/MGM run. Long prized by collectors, Sundazed presents it on compact disc and 180-gram vinyl from the original master tapes, with new liner notes by Rolling Stone's David Fricke.
