45th Anniversary 180g Vinyl Reissue! Remastered from Original Master Tapes!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 316/500!


The Velvet Underground is the third album by American rock group The Velvet Underground. The album was recorded in 1968 at TTG Studios in Hollywood, California. It was their first record to feature Doug Yule, John Cale's replacement. The album's sound – consisting largely of ballads and straightforward rock songs – marked a notable shift in style from the group's previous recordings.

Apart from the forceful rockers "What Goes On" and "Beginning to See the Light," it largely features more subtle and restrained sounds with reflective, melodic songs that are about various forms of love, including "Pale Blue Eyes," "Some Kinda Love," "Jesus," "I'm Set Free," and "That's the Story of My Life." Without Cale's penchant for experimenting, Reed and Morrison's twin-guitar playing became the band's most prominent sound, and the album had spare arrangements that lacked distortion. The only song that exhibited the band's avant-garde roots is "The Murder Mystery," which incorporated a raga rhythm, murmuring organ, overlapping spoken-word passages, and lilting counterpoint vocals.

"... as personal, honest, and moving as anything Lou Reed ever committed to tape." -Mark Deming, allmusic.com

"The album that turned folk music inside out. VU began as a black-booted antidote to flower power, so the quiet disillusion, exhaustion and ache here is as explosive as their first album's forbidding howl." -Rolling Stone
