This really is the way to do super deluxe reissues. Eschewing silly gimmicks, it's basically a coffee-table book, beautifully produced, with 6 CDs in slots at the back and, of course, a peelable banana on the front. The essay by Richie Unterberger is well-informed - as far as is possible because there seems to be quite a lot of uncertainty about exact dates etc. - and well written, though a little bland; I particularly like the opening list of negative and random factors that should have prevented the album from ever having been made, and the informed speculation about why it took nearly a year for the album to be issued. Much of the book consists of photographs, most of which I've never seen before, both of the Velvets and associates (often in live performance) and of different versions of the original album cover, gig handbills etc.

The mastering is superb throughout, the amount of detail they've got out of the original tapes is extremely impressive and both the stereo and mono versions of the released album sound magnificent, and better than ever before, as does Nico's Chelsea Girls album, included here in its entirety. Notably it is mastered quite a bit quieter than the previous 2 CD deluxe edition - it sounds quite noticeably different overall as well. As I predicted in my review of the grey-market Unripened - Sweden, the contents of the legendary Scepter Studios/Norman Dolph acetate featuring an early/demo version of the album get an official release as part of a box set.

Had this one for a while and have given the CDs a good listen.
CD1 contains the stereo mix of the original album with 5 alternative track versions, all worth having as European Son being possibly better than the original. This must be as good as this album is going to sound in my opinion. Much better having the original album to start with not "sandwiched" as it is on Peel Slowly And See.
CD2 has the mono version + some singles and surprisingly does not have the impact of the stereo version.
CD3 is Nico's album which I must admit I have never owned before unlike VU's album where I still have my original '67 vinyl. As this album had Reed, Cale & Morrison playing on it (along with Jackson Browne), it is a logical inclusion, and a worthy one.
CD4 has the studio sessions and rehearsals which for any fan of the band is such interesting listening, (although the early recordings on Peel Slowly on CD1 are essential as well), and again are a really worthy addition.
CDs5&6 contain a live concert from 4/11/66 and are bootleg quality. Anyone that has ever heard bootlegs of rock concerts as early as 66 may know how bad the quality can be!
However, for a band and an album of this historical importance, I'm am so happy that they were included. They should carry a caveat emptor though as they are rough!!

The package comes housed in a large format book far more suited to your book library than your CD library, however it is beautiful in my opinion with many photos of the band and memorabilia, lyrics and 6 slots at the back to house the CDs.

The debut album by The Velvet Underground, joined here by the German model/actress Nico, has a place in history as one of the greatest and most influential records of all time. Though it fared poorly on the sales front in its early years (a mere 30,000 is the figure often banded about), a famous quote made by Producer and Roxy Music alumni Brian Eno goes a small way to summing up its impact; "...everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band." Looked upon as Rock's first truly Alternative record with its powerful, provocative lyrics and the topics it touched upon such as drug abuse & prostitution, the album must not be looked upon as merely shock fodder. Musically, as well as lyrically, it is a masterpiece and it ultimately launched the career of one of Rock's iconic figures in Lou Reed.

The band itself, at least the line-up that created this album, was made up of Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, Maureen Tucker & Nico.

This 45th Anniversary Edition came in a Super-Deluxe 6-disc pack, but I'm not exactly made of money so I had to settle for the 2-Disc Deluxe version. It is hardly a detriment on the enjoyment factor; VU&N (we'll use this as a key for the title) is one of those albums that possesses the ability to keep the listener interested with a good chunk of long songs and long instrumental periods. Disc 1 contains the original album plus 5 further tracks which are alternate versions of songs from the album. Disc 2 continues the alternate trend; with a further 9 alternate versions of the album tracks including further versions of tracks already featured as alternate versions.
