Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of all Time - #293 "... the band's first LPs are essential purchases ... certainly essential listening for any study of 70s and 80s punk evolution." - Rolling Stone "Loud, abrasive, chilling: the perfect antidote for the Age of Aquarius." - Chicago Tribune White Light / White Heat is the second studio album by American avant-garde band the Velvet Underground, released in 1968. This album defined the characteristic noise-rock sound the band is known for. In 2003, the album was ranked number 293 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

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!
