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.

10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 12th February 2015
This has always been my favourite Velvet Underground album. It was the first one I heard and like "Surfer Rosa" by the Pixies which I heard around a similar time, it was a "road to Damascus" style revelation. It's the one with "Pale Blue Eyes" on it. It's the one with "What Goes On" on it. It sounds soft and gentle in places whilst being chaotic in others. And it has "After Hours" on it. The only downside I can think of is that it doesn't have John Cale on it. I can't think of this album as anything other than an absolute classic.
