White Light/White Heat – The Velvet Underground

Sold out
$38.00
Condition: Brand New

Description

While 1967's "Velvet Underground & Nico" was a part of Andy Warhol's global artistic vision, 1968's "White Light / White Heat" was free of all Warholian influence, so in a way it could be thought of as another debut album.

Here the music was left to fester on its own, with no artistic visionary interfering or trying to create a soundtrack for his pop art, and the Velvets filled that void with an album that is an aural subway car full of drunkards, junkies and whores rumbling through the bowels of NYC with a one way ticket to oblivion.
