The TOP Banana of Rare Records: Velvet Underground & Nico 1967 US East Coast Verve Vinyl LP

The Velvet Underground & Nico

Very rare and essential 1967 US East Coast press blue & silver Verve label 11-track stereo LP, housed in the legendary Andy Warhol pasted gatefold sleeve with unpeeled banana sticker & no torso image on theback [airbrushed]. The label is a large ‘t’ blue & silver Verve design with ‘Side 1’ & ‘2’ to the lower left [East Coast design] & hand scratched matrices in the run-offs. This is a wonderful one previous owner copy. The iconic sleeve grades VG/VG+ as there is some foxing evident, a tiny area of paper loss to the bottom right-hand corner, a little corner-wear/sticker mark with minimal wear to the inner spread. However, there are no deletion cuts, no writing or creasing with the banana remaining unpeeled. The spine is clear as day & the panels remain a wonderful off white. The vinyl is superb. It is virtually impossible to find a copy of this album in any condition let alone one that shows almost no signs of play. Yes, there are some very faint hairlines in the odd area on close inspection but these are rendered purely cosmetic with the vinyl grading a healthy Excellent all round. Highly Recommended V6-5008
