The Velvet Underground / Verve/MGM 5LP Vinyl box set

The Velvet Underground / Verve/MGM vinyl box set

While we wait for the Super Deluxe Edition box set of The Velvet Underground & Nico album, Sundazed Music have announced the release of The Velvet Underground: The MGM/Verve Albums, a five-LP vinyl box set due out on 30 October 2012.

This box set gathers the rare mono versions of the band’s first three studio albums, along with the mono version of Nico’s Chelsea Girl and a definitive edition of the band’s unfinished fourth album. The music is all sourced from the original Verve/MGM analog reels and mastered by Bob Irwin.

The packaging looks excellent with the records housed in a flip-top deluxe box with all original LP artwork along with two bonus poster inserts.

    Very interesting re the unfinished 4th album , i think i have all those tracks on various cd’s, i’ll have to put them all on one disc !
    Having said that , the album that WAS released “Loaded” is pretty damn fine indeed. And there was a lovely 2 disc deluxe edition of it a few years ago.
