The comment below talks about a six-disc set. Be aware this is single compilation disc. Don't know what the comment below is referring to but it isn't this item.
You only need one disc in this six-disc set, and that's the first one containing the original album. Really you can stop there. Everything that's been said about it originally remains true today, and for those who hold this as VU's and Lou Reed's creative apotheosis, anything added to the original ten songs is purely frosting. How many alternative mixes do people need to hear? Only one, though the Val Valentin, Closet and mono mixes are fun to visit. The other selling point here is the newly sequenced "lost" 1969 album, originally released in various collections and configurations. Too much content for casual fans but diehards will love it.
a great compilation of The Velvet Underground. ...,Love the live early versions of Sweet Jane and Rock and Roll. Excellent CD for a browser or a fan. ...,The Velvet's essence is captured here. ...,For someone checking out the great Lou Reed for the first time, this is a good place to start. ...,The Velvet Underground did not have any hit songs per say, yet, you will not be able to get their songs out of your consciousness. ...,I can't. ...,From the gritty driving beats, to the stark,vivid and often dark but very real lyrics, you're in for a treat if you open up your world to the music of Lou Reed!
Multi-platinum group?! Is that a joke?!
