Velvet Underground: Deluxe New Package

The Velvet Underground have announced a 45th anniversary, “super deluxe” edition of their 1969 self-titled album, which includes 65 tracks over six CDs. It’s out November 24 via Polydor. Check out the full tracklist here. The edition comes in a case-bound book, and includes liner notes by Rolling Stone writer David Fricke. One of the discs contain a version of the Velvet Underground’s unreleased fourth album, which was recorded in October 1969 to get out of the band’s contract with MGM. Several of its songs ended up on the band’s eventual fourth album, “Loaded,” and band member Lou Reed’s “Transformer” solo album.
