<i>The Velvet Underground & Nico</i> to be Re-Released as Six-Disc Set

Universal has announced that it will re-release The Velvet Underground’s classic album The Velvet Underground & Nico on Oct. 1 as a six-disc set. The re-issue is in honor of the record’s 45th anniversary and will feature a treasure trove of alternate takes, live recordings and cuts from practice sessions. Nico’s entire Chelsea Girl album will also be included.

The album was originally released on March 12, 1967 and marked the debut collaborative effort between The VU and German-born singer/songwriter Nico.
