Lillith, GZ, extra tracks, Russian Pressing and 400 for sale on discogs alone... What could go wrong.

I really can't stand the center label they used for this.

Just found this in a local record store. Has a Made in Germany sticker on outside plastic, which is loose, not shrink wrap. Anybody else have that? It's clearly this Russian release. Makes me think the Germany sticker wasn't there originally. Or was it pressed in Germany for a Russian distributor? Who knows. Pretty cool to have the banana sticker, even if it's a 2008 reprint.

Curious Russian(!) reissue of the all-time classic banana album - with the addition of the track Chelsea Girls (from Nico's debut solo LP) tagged on the end. It's an odd idea and I'm not sure what it brings to the party. The VU album is perfect .... yes, I know Lou and Sterl worked up this track for Nico, and it is indeed a wonderfully sublime and dark disinterring of the denizens of the Chelsea hotel from their various resting places.... like creatures from a tomb. I guess it made sense to someone, somewhere at some point, to sell a few more copies of the VU & Nico (and how come a Russki label licensed it from Polydor?) Actually I don't want to think about it anymore, the room's starting to spin.
