The Velvet Underground & Nico terá reedição comemorativa com seis discos no pacote

Prestes a completar quarenta e cinco anos de lançamento, The Velvet Underground & Nico (uma das estreias mais representativas da história do rock) vai ganhar uma caprichada reedição da Universal contendo seis discos previstos para sair em primeiro de outubro. The Velvet Underground & Nico 45th Anniversary Edition terá versões em mono e estéreo além do LP Chelsea Girl (primeiro trabalho solo da cantora Nico), as cobiçadas gravações perdidas do Scepter Studio, produções feitas na época da Factory e a raridade Valleydale Ballroom, com material ao vivo de 1966.

Novidades em streaming serão muito bem vindas mas enquanto elas não chegam, ficamos com tracklist do que vem por aí e o áudio original dessa pérola na sequência do post.
