On some days, we think the Clash was the coolest band ever.
On others, it’s the Velvet Undergound.
We never, ever feel this way about U2.
For those VU days, there’s a way to get a fix that doesn’t involve annoying Internet radio or apps that want to tell all your Facebook friends what you’re listening to:
A brilliant new boxed set comprised of six essential VU discs, including two versions of The Velvet Underground & Nico, and Nico’s album Chelsea Girls.
Then it starts to get rare and intense:
The Scepter Studios Sessions, cut in 1966, and two discs full of a seminal live performance at the Valleydale Ballroom in Columbus, Ohio.
Plenty of tunes for all tomorrow’s parties…
