  • Specially designed for VU lovers and fans, it's not the ultimate guide but something you will not regret to buy.

  • I read this book before I even heard a song from the "Velvet Underground". Why did I pick it up? Nico of course, but there are very few photos of her and others in the book. The main complaint it that it's more like a documentary rather than insights of the 60's and other contenporary bands. To be clear, the book is a more like a documentary/history book rather than a book with a fantastic story.

    Why I liked it? Since then I heard the album produced by Andy Worhol and it's fantasic. But the book cleary recalls that Andy's job was nothing more than to not let anyone touch it. Music back then could be censored and condenesed for radio play and acceptance. For instance, the song "heroine" would never be on a Beatles album, but who know's he could be talking about Janis Joplin or Dianna Ross rather than a drug.

    The best part of the book is the local history, there is a small town about 1:15 minute away from me that the book mentions. It's a cool shout out, I won't name it, but it was an early gig at a private school. For that reason this book gets a good reveiew. With a documentary book, you just never know soemone's humble beginings!
