The Velvet Underground and Nico, Unripened - The Norman Dolph Acetate, Scepter Studios NYC, 25th April 1966

This is a copy of the original studio demos for the VU&N album in '67, cut to acetate shortly after recording. Sadly, There She Goes Again, also recorded during the Dolph sessions, wasn't placed on it, but alot of these recordings were remixed for the final released album.

A Mr. Hill of Montreal found a copy in a Chelsea (NYC) flea market in 2002 and paid a handsome sum of 75c, only to sell it a few years later for a much more handsome sum of $25,000 plus change. I think the phrase rhymes with 'clucky dastard', to paraphrase Captain Blackadder.
