Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you check out what's available by the Velvets on Amazon, there are far more compilation albums than there are original releases. To me, The Velvet Underground occupy a place in my heart that The Beatles and The Rolling Stones have in other music fans. Their music is resistant to ephemeral passing music trends, and let's face it, 'The X Factor' is never going to do a VU 'special', where the wannabes since the band's greatest hits. That being said, I'd love Cheryl Cole to announce that one of her hopeless charges is going to be performing 'Venus In Furs', or that Louis Walsh was going to get that risible pair of 'Jedward' twins to do 'Sister Ray'. Right, back to the review. This comp is basically a repackage of the 'Gold' double CD (identical track listing), in an attractive digipak cover with a nice concert photo of the band on the front and a good sleevenote by Record Collector (and others) writer Daryl Easlea. It also includes some solo tracks by Nico, and the sound and packaging makes this a fine entree to the music of the greatest band of the 1960s. It's still music that scares, amuses, entertains, and provokes. There again, you may just want to buy the 'Peel Slowly And See' box set, all the individual albums (and the 1969 pair of live albums) plus things like 'VU' and 'Another View', which contain much previously unissued material. I did, and I admit that I'm a sucker for anything Velvets related. There is no band that you can compare them to; excuse the cliche, but they were in a field of their own. Many bands that have followed in their wake have simply taken a strand of what the band did and made a career out of it. Forget that - the Velvets resonate as strongly and passionately now, some forty-five years after their original formation, as ever.

Another VU compilation!? 3 May 2006
By Radney Depano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another VU compilation!? As a VU fan, it's been very disappointing to know that there's a new VU compilation but contain the same songs on other VU compilations. Maybe the label should think of something different rather than repackaging and re releasing the same stuff over and over. The 2 CD set compiles some of the best VU tracks + NICO's "Chelsea Girl" that I think would be a very good introduction to some of the people who aren't familiar with the band at the best possible price but will be a disappointment for long time VU fans since it's just one of those VU stuff that has been remastered and released over and over! To the record label, please try to think of something new rather than exploiting people's money on the same stuff....

Great music in a pretty but lacking package 31 Dec. 2006
By Geoffrey R. Balme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like so many great bands from long ago record companies look for ways to reinvent their "toothbrush" so they can sell it to you yet again.

I honestly had this material on vinyl, rarely use the vinyl anymore and decided to get a little compilation (a typical purchase for me).

This one came with the promise of a little book - the book is little, and disjointed, it's like they never proofread it. Honestly, there's gaping holes in the flow of the text. It's got nice pics, and a nice little timeline, but it has the feel of someone spending about 20 minutes actually putting it together.

you'll learn more about the velvet underground listening to Jonathan Richman's song about them - than is offered here.

Still - for the right price it's 2 disks of great music just enough Nico - and the warhol touch - and then onto the real "punk" movement.

what more needs to be said you know who this band is?
