Day 259. “The Velvet Underground & Nico” by The Velvet Underground & Nico

Sunday morning
Praise the dawning
It’s just a restless feeling
By my side

Early dawning
Sunday morning
It’s all the wasted years
So close behind

Watch out the world’s behind you
There’s always someone around you
Who will call
It’s nothing at all

Track 1-“Sunday Morning”

I bought this album about 4 years ago. It was the 45th anniversary edition. I am so glad I bought it…because it is probably one of the best albums I own.

It’s art….through and through. Also, probably one of the most influential albums of all time. It also happened to be recorded during one of artist Andy Warhol’s most prominent tours-hence the pop art banana on the album cover. Upon it’s release, it barely did a thing…sold 30,000 copies. It didn’t receive any praise until a decade later. Praised for its influence on modern rock, there has to be very few music connoisseurs out there that don’t have this in their collection.

The first time I heard The Velvet Underground was on the soundtrack for the film “Velvet Goldmine

Tomorrow is the last day!!!
