The Velvet Underground
Loaded

Loaded was the fourth and penultimate album by The Velvet Underground and the last one to feature any of the original members, most notably, Lou Reed. It is, of course, an absolute classic and should be owned by anyone who has ever expressed even a passing interest in music. It features such greats as Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll.

The Velvet Underground
Collected

Greatest hits comps of legendary and well-documented bands are rarely inspiring, but this double LP Velvets collection makes for a decent overview of their work. As well as the obvious highlights like Heroin and Venus in Furs, generous samplings of the first three albums include longer experimental tracks like Sister Ray and The Murder Mystery. There’s nothing from Loaded for some reason, but you do get several key tracks that first appeared on the (arguably superior) V.U. and Another V.U. comps, like Andy’s Chest and Foggy Notions. Overall this release is a fine entry point that portrays exactly those aspects that made Reed, Cale, Morrison and Tucker such a formative influence on a wide range of music. Nicely presented on Warhol-banana-pink vinyl.

The Velvet Underground
1969

This reissue of The Velvet Underground’s 1969 feels like walking into a living room full of old friends. All the favourites are there, drink in hand: “I’m Sticking with You”, “Rock and Roll” and “Andy’s Chest”, but they’ve changed a bit, as old friends do. There’s original mixes taken from the infamous tour of 1969 as well as rare instrumentals, alternate versions and mixes from 2014 never before pressed into vinyl.

The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground

To celebrate the enduring longevity and indelible influence of The Velvet Underground Polydore/UME are releasing 'The Velvet Underground-45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition', which features 64 tracks in a six-CD package. Originally released in 1969, The Velvet Underground’s self-titled third album famously departed from the band’s first two LP’s. John Cale was replaced with Doug Yule, and the record was a stylistic shift, demonstrating a warmer, more optimistic side to VU.

John Cale
Fragments Of A Rainy Season

Fragments Of A Rainy Season captures John Cale live and musically stripped back to the bare bones. It was originally released in 1992. The album features tracks from John Cale’s classic albums such as Fear and Paris 1919, but it is perhaps most notable for his cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. It is John Cale’s version that inspired Jeff Buckley to make it the centrepiece to his Grace album.

The Velvet Underground
The Complete Matrix Tapes

The Velvet Underground were in great form in 1969, where they lodged in San Francisco and played a whole stack of sets at the Matrix club. The Complete Matrix Tapes gives us all the live recordings from two of those nights, spread over 8LPs (oooh!) and 42 tracks (aaaah!). The band are on fine form, locking into several of their best known tracks. Box-set on Universal.

The Velvet Underground
La Cave 1968

John Cale had just left the Velvets in a state of confusion and despair, being that he was responsible for much of the band's most challenging and impressive work curving around people's idea of punk. La Cave 1968 sees newcomer Doug Yule in the early stages of his tenure with the band -- at the time of recording, he'd only been an official member for a couple of days. But here they are, performing deftly and doing lots of things with their guitars in spite of it all.

The Velvet Underground
Live At The End Of Cole Avenue 1969

Now you don’t need me to tell you about The Velvet Underground now do you? Shouldn’t think so. But live recordings of these New York cats are a relatively rare beast to come across in circulation, so it is good of B13 to press this recording, of a 1969 show At The End Of Cole Avenue to wax. And blue wax at that!

The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico

What is left to say about this classic? The record that pretty much kicked off everything that became indie, alternative, dream-pop, punk, new-wave or what have you. And from a band who were semi-manufactured by svengali Andy Warhol who added sultry chanteuse Nico to the line up and made all kinds of suggestions. Despite that it's the originality of Lou Reed's songs that endure as well as their experimental and diverse method of music making.
