The Velvet Underground, Singles 1966-69 (2009)
Here is the most expensive record/s in the house that I’ve never listened to. $100 for this set of seven x 7” singles – reissued in 2009 – and still sealed. Quite what I’m hoping to achieve here is anyone’s guess. I love The Velvet Underground so much so that some days – most days of the week even – I’m sure they’re my favourite band; well, certainly the most important band I discovered – meaning it was all about the timing. And what it meant. And what it’s continued to mean…and so maybe that’s why I tease myself with this sealed box-set. Who knows? It’s anyone’s guess. Will I sell this on one day? Will I get desperate for cash and trade it and lose on the deal? Will I spontaneously rip it open one day and binge-listen to the lot in an aural orgy? Will I keep it sealed forever – possibly forgetting I even own it? If you think you know the answer then do let me know.
