In celebration of the new Velvet Underground Loaded: Re-loaded 45th Anniversary Edition 6-disc box set, we’re giving a box away to one lucky customer along with a VU newsprint-style poster and 7-inch flexi-disc featuring the demo version of “Rock & Roll”!
Jenny’s life was saved by “Rock & Roll” in the classic Velvet Underground song of the same name. A similar fate has befallen many of those who’ve heard Loaded, the 1970 album that included the song. In 1997, the album’s legend grew when Rhino introduced Fully Loaded, a double-CD with unreleased versions of every song on the original, and more.
This fall, one of the greatest albums of all time will return as a six-disc collection that includes:
– The original album remastered in both stereo and mono.
– A generous selection of demos, early versions and alternate mixes from that era.
– A newly remastered/re-edited version of Live At Max’s Kansas City.
– Two high resolution mixes, plus a surround sound mix in DTS and Dolby Digital.
– An unreleased May 1970 concert recorded in Philadelphia.
