favorite VELVET UNDERGROUND album?


i've only heard their debut album and the one they did with nico. at first i thought they were annoying and overrated, but it soon grew on me. i love that song PALE BLUE EYES. im looking to pick up their other stuff now.

Their debut album was the one with Nico.
My favorite, however, is their third LP, The Velvet Underground.

The Velvet Underground

(OK, actually it's 1969 Velvet Underground Live With Lou Reed, but I don't know if that counts.)

It was originally a double album, but then someone had the bright idea to release it as two, separate CDs.

I feel that "Loaded" has some of Lou's best songs and holds together as a great album although it was pretty much just tossed together. But I have a soft spot for the 1st album "The Velvet Underground + Nico."

(I remember when I got that first LP with the peelable banana on the cover. I peeled off the banana peel expecting there to be some pictures of the band. What a naive kid I was.)
