Velvet Underground White Light/White Heat vinyl LP album (LP record) UK VUNLPWH763711

VELVET UNDERGROUND White Light/White Heat (1968 UK first issue 6-track stereo vinyl LP on the silver ‘T’ Verve label, featuring Sister Ray, The Gift & I Heard Her Call My Name, front laminated flipback picture sleeve printed by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. with ‘patents pending’ text. Barring a few laminate creases to the front near the opening, the sleeve shows minimal wear, just a couple of small marks to the front with the edges sharp, the spine proud with all text legible and very little discolouration to the reverse. The vinyl is Near Mint with some spindle wear to suggest the record was taken on just the very occasional day trip to turntable land, but decided not to stay long. A fantastic copy! V6-5046).
