An album by The Velvet Underground needs to be in the collection of every legitimate music lover. Those who do not yet have an album from this legendary group, can now fill this gap by purchasing the new Collected.

The  band,  with  artistic  exponents  of text  and  music  writers  Lou  Reed  and  John Cale, influenced generations  of rock musicians and groups. Certainly in the 70s and early  80s the cult status  of this group,  briefly  managed  by Andy  Warhol,  reached extraordinary  proportions. The Velvet Underground  was already a real punk band ten years before the rise of this music genre. This was reflected in their lifestyle, drug use and “attitude”.  Musically,  however,  you can hardly compare  them with punk music. With songs like “Heroin”, “I’m Waiting For The Man” and “White Light / White Heat”, they released a new definition of rock and roll.

The Collected  compilation  consists  of 2LP’s  with a total  of 23 songs.  One  of the above-mentioned classics  is “I’m Waiting  For The Man”, in which the protagonist’s addiction  forces  him  to wait  for his dealer  with  his twenty-six  dollars  in hand,   a number that expresses  an addict in an unprecedented  direct and realistic way. The chaotic and sometimes  atonal music confirm the grim narrative.  In addition, we will find “What Goes On”, “Pale Blue Eyes”, “Venus In Furs” and many more songs from the pivotal band.
