Nico / The End / 2CD Deluxe Edition

Nico / The End 2CD Deluxe

Nico‘s 1974 album, The End will be issued as a 2CD Deluxe Edition on 1 October 2012.

The 1973 album was her fourth solo release – another collaboration with John Cale – and was recorded in 1973 in London. Cale chose Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music to work on the album with him; between them they provided the entire instrumental framework for Nico and her harmonium.

This issue of The End is remastered here for the first time, and comes with a bonus disc of tracks including The End and a previously unreleased version of Das Lied der Deutschen performed live at London’s Rainbow Theatre on June 1, 1974, and some John Peel session tracks which are either unreleased or new to CD.

One response to Nico / The End / 2CD Deluxe Edition

  1. Anfunny says:

    It’s worth mentioning the 1971 Peel Sessions were released as a CD EP, so the first track on CD2 is not “first time on CD” at all. The EP was released in 1988 and again in 1991 by Strange Fruit.
