Like The Velvet Underground? Like box sets? Like rock music and noise and spoken word pieces about getting murdered by your long-distance girlfriend and guitar screeches? Then an upcoming eponymous limited edition box set loaded (or should that be Loaded?) with cool stuff should be just the trick.
The Velvet Underground (that’s the name of the box set, just to be clear) will include the 180g vinyl copies of the band’s four core albums 1967’s The Velvet Underground & Nico, 1968’s White Light/White Heat, 1969’s The Velvet Underground and 1970’s Loaded, as well as a facsimile of the Velvets’ lost album 1969, Nico’s solo record Chelsea Girl, and a 48-page book of photographs with a foreword by Velvets’ drummer Mo Tucker.
There are only going to be 1000 copies of The Velvet Underground, and you can pre-order one as well as get a look at the complete tracklist right here, where the pre-order price is just a bit under $180.
