Biography

The Velvet Underground's debut album, 1967's The Velvet Underground & Nico, is among the most important and influential ever made--and every new generation, as the Sex Pistols, David Bowie, R.E.M. and Sonic Youth have previously, rediscovers it. With the now two-CD, digitally remastered The Velvet Underground & Nico (Deluxe Edition) (Polydor/UME), released March 5, 2002, yet ... Read more in Amazon's Velvet Underground Store

You get your moneys' worth from this one.
K. Myers
It's great to hear Pale Blue Eyes after All Tomorrow's Parties and to have it followed by Femme Fatale, it somehow seems right.
Pieter Uys
One of the truly great bands, and if you own one Velvets CD, this should be the one.

Format: Audio CD
Most fans of the VU are very dedicated and over-familiar with this legendary band's classic albums. That means they my not like this non-chronological sequence of tracks. I find it a refreshing listening experience because it highlights the individual songs instead of the overall feel of those album masterpieces. It's great to hear Pale Blue Eyes after All Tomorrow's Parties and to have it followed by Femme Fatale, it somehow seems right. Another refreshing sequence is the wistful Sunday Morning being followed by Rock `n Roll, which concludes the album. Of course this collection excludes some familiar tracks like The Gift but it does include most of their most accessible numbers like Sweet Jane, Waiting For The Man Venus In Furs and the aforementioned Pale Blue Eyes. Plus the controversial and experimental White Light White Heat and the overwhelming Heroin. A good selection, in my book, that's why I don't hesitate to give it five stars.

This is THEE best collection of V.U. songs in one " Greatest hits " package I have ever heard ....contains a lot of framiliar classics with a couple deep album tracks as well....BUT the real kicker is the PHENOMENAL sound quality of this disc !!!.....They REALLY did a nice job selecting and re-mastering all the songs.....I am a HUGE fan of V.U. and would have to say that this disc is THEE one to pick up for an ' overview' of their work and the best possible sound quality on the market......you can't go wrong with this disc... worth the money....!

I'm sure some might disagree, but for the new fan this is pretty much Velvet Underground 101. It's easily their best single-disc collection now, and three tracks longer than the older "Best Of". Sure I could pick another song or two to toss on, but it's hard to complain when this gives us "Sweet Jane", "Heroin", "All Tomorrow's Parties", "Femme Fatale", and "Pale Blue Eyes". Regardless of how one might catagorize VU, be it classic rock, early alternative, glam, punk, art-rock, they were one of the first, and I would say best. I'll admit I like some nice artwork too, and "The Very Best Of" also gives you that.

Velvet Underground is just one of those bands you can lay back, burn some incense and relax. You get your moneys' worth from this one. It's a long c.d. Venus in Furs is my absolute favorite. I could play this one over and over and never get tired of it. Mellow and alluring are two words I'd use to describe their music.

I admit that I bought this CD just for "Heroin" but the whole album is worth listening to and relaxing.

Not only is the selection terrific but the quality is far superior to my vynil which are my originals from *cough* the 60s & 70s when I purchased them and played them on a crummy, metal portable stereo. This LP is a win/win.

First of all a Velvet Underground best of with a sticker for Hyundai is repulsive. I'm sticking with you is a fun song, and one many fans probably do not have. It was first released on the 1984 album V.U. One song that currently get radio play on (big plug!) WEHM is Loaded's Who Loves the Sun. That ought to be on this compilation. As with all Velvet releases, too many songs from the debut. It is a great album, but if you are reading this still, you have that album. Get the real albums, and Another View and VU instead. It will be more pricey, but these are some of the most important, influential records I own.
