"... their best: melodic, literate, compellingly sung ... A." - The Village Voice “... a stunning turnaround … every song is a classic ... 10 tracks of mostly warm, explicit sympathy and optimism, expressed with melodic clarity, set in gleaming double guitar jangle and near-whispered balladry ... tender harmonies and overlapping, lacelike guitar patterns recall the intimate Nico ballads on the first album ..." - Rolling Stone The Velvet Underground's self-titled third record, released in 1969, marks the band's first album without founding member John Cale. Cale's departure dramatically affected the sound of the band here: less experimental, with an emphasis on mellow, acoustic, almost folk material, the album surprised fans while critics raved. The Velvet Underground has been included on many lists of all-time greatest albums and is considered one of the band's best. "I really didn’t think we should make another White Light/White Heat. I thought it would be a terrible mistake ... we had to demonstrate the other side of us. Otherwise, we would become this one dimensional thing and that had to be avoided at all costs." - Lou Reed

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
