About This Record.  This is an original USA MONO copy of the Velvet Underground & Nico released on Verve Records V-5008 in 1967.  The banana has been peeled off the front cover.  The back cover has the Torso but the Torso has been obscured by the black VU sticker pasted over it because of a lawsuit by Mr. Emerson about the use of his photo.  The stickered copies are particularly rare. Please see the details below about the cover, vinyl, labels and everything else you might want to know.


CHECK my Feedback which will show you my grading, Cover/Vinyl, of other LPs I have recently sold and what the lucky people who bought them think of them and our experience.

The photos of the labels or cover list the songs and any possible details about the labels. 

I offer full refund including shipping both ways (for USA and foreign buyers in case for some wildly strange reason you might be unhappy with this purchase).  Comes cleaned on my KL Audio Ultrasonic Record Cleaner and placed in a new dust-free sleeve for your grandchildren.  And at least one plastic sleeves for moisture protection (for you and me).

Cover Condition: STRONG Excellent (EX) better gatefold cover. TOP Keeper copy would be impossible to upgrade. The banana has been peeled, but the front cover is otherwise bright white; I've never seen another so clean.  The back cover has some minor age spotting, and there is a promo or deletion drill hole in the front left lower cover.  The spine and seams are tight and show no wear.  The gatefold cover creaks if you try and open it too far.  Please see all my Photos.  I didn't take them for fun and frolic.

Vinyl Condition: STRONG VG.  Plays VG+ or better, with many EX moments, but some small scuffs and paper marks, but nice enough MONO copy.

Labels. Near Mint (NM) labels.  Please see photos of all labels.

Inserts: Comes with original Verve factory records paper inner sleeve listing other artists and stuff, but, no worries, the LP comes cleaned on my KL Audio Ultrasonic Record Cleaning Machine and in a new rice paper sleeve equivalent.

Packaging.  I clean all vinyl on my KL Audio Ultrasonic Record Cleaning Machine and place it in a new innersleeve so the old dust does not reattach; but I also include the innersleeve that came with the LP if it is the original.  I separate the vinyl in its new sleeve after cleaning from the cover, and place the cover and the separately packed vinyl in at least one if not two plastic innersleeves that help protect against moisture damage during this cool records transition to your record collection.  I use sturdy carboard containers with real corners and pack with at least two insert stiffeners, and I place neon stickers on the front and back of the package indicating “Do Not Bend” and/or “Fragile” or something like that to help facilitate a safe passage.

Shipping and Payment.  PayPal only.  I ship promptly worldwide; sometimes the automatic eBay invoice does not have accurate shipping if you buy more than one LP, so if you are unsure email me and ask for an invoice. . . .  I offer full refund on this record including shipping both ways, unless you live outside North America in which case I will refund you shipping one way unless I made a mistake which I sometimes do because I am only human..  CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS:  Please add sales tax!
