Released:
Label: Polydor
This six-disc orgy of Velvets material features both stereo and mono remasters of the original album; Nico's first solo effort , Chelsea Girl; the singles that nobody heard; alternate versions of select cuts; recording sessions that were only available as pricey bootlegs; and a live show from 1966 that opens with a 28-minute early version of “Sister Ray” called "Melody Laughter" and closes with another 28-minute freakout. Of course, the live cuts sound like they were recorded from underneath the club, but this is VU in 1966 -- there simply isn't much music more influential than this.
