For completists only,
This review is from: Unripened - Sweden (Audio CD)
This is a "reissue" of the acetate of 1966 Velvets demos which was rediscovered in a 2005 New York yard sale for a few cents and then resold, amid much media ballyhoo, for a five-figure sum at online auction. The LP comprises some different mixes and/or takes of some of the songs which were later included on the first VU album ("And Nico"), but this material here is definitely only for the obsessives. The sound quality is muddy, the songs are not the band's best and the performances really aren't that great either. Stick to the original albums.
