About this deal

But this set does obviously have a great many perks, including, as I've said before, the one record that has the radio spots, the two aborted singles, the booklet and the neat little postcard, which came as a delightful surprise, because it can now join my collection of musician postcards.

Includes the rare mono versions of the VU’s first three albums, the superior mono version of Nico’s Chelsea Girl (featuring Reed, Cale & Morrison) and a definitive edition of the band’s unfinished fourth album! I'm also totally fine with the fact that this collection completely neglects the singles from Loaded (which makes sense since that's on a different record company); I don't care what anyone says, Loaded is 80% mainstream wannabe garbage, and the rest isn't that much better in my opinion.

That is essentially my biggest dissappointment. For the cost that this box set is going for currently I have to say it's not totally worth getting unless you're one who HAS to have it regardless. It is a great collector's item, I will give it that, and when I first learned of its release I didn't hesitate to buy it, though I feel it may've been a bit of a waste, considering I have essentially all of the material already, but the extra 'radio spot's record is a great bonus, and the mono mixes, which I don't have on CD, are exciting, getting to hear some of my all-time favorites in a new light. And let's face it, vinyl records are SOOO much cooler to have than CD's, there's just something about the appeal of a record that CD's will never have, and don't get me started on people who buy only mp3's...

Looks pretty good and the single versions are what they are but I have had two boxes and both are as warped as they could be and still be playable. And the corresponding records in each box were warped in the exact same way suggesting it's a pressing issue.

The second lp is half fold down stereo and the others are stereo fold downs through the entire albums.

Sundazed Music – VU 4003, Universal Music Special Markets – B0016246-01, Verve Records – B0016246-01 Another thing to consider is, according to some posters on the Steve Hoffman forums, this release wasn't even supposed to exist as a stand alone release, rather, as part of a 50th anniversary box set coming out in a month or so, but apparently was released by accident, or was possibly supposed to come out as a stand alone release at a later date, but someone messed up and released it early. This may have even been recalled already. So for those who didn't jump on this, you'll have to re-buy all the albums again to get this set if it isn't eventually released on its' own. Which, as I stated previously, most fans probably won't want to do just to get the extra material, as they may already have better versions of the original albums.
