The Velvet Underground & Nico ~ 1968 original 3rd state pressing peelable banana Verve LP, $950 + S / H
Originally released in March 1967, this is a 3rd state version (probably released in 1968, west coast version because of the "A" & "B" sides, instead of "1" & "2"), with the back cover "airbrushed", covering up the upside down guy Emerson, but has a peelable banana, about 93% still there! Gatefold cover is pretty clean all the way around! Inside middle unbroken. I would grade the cover VG+(+) over all. Includes the original Verve Records printed inner sleeve M-, NO seams busted. The vinyl is graded VG- because of the many light scratches on both sides, plays VG+, some background noise in some spots, absolutely NO skips, still enjoyable over 53 years since it was 1st hatched (or peeled). However, these old 1960s LPs sound much better than 70s & 80s records. The vinyl was just so much better back then. And all our records & items are "fully garaunteed", if not happy please return for a full refund! Top Ten All Time Best LPs!
