Could someone let me know if they're selling the 'Bedroom Mix' of this disc ? My understanding is that the different mixes are so radically different as to be nearly different versions. The version I have came with a Velvets boxed set in the early 90s. It's a great record but I didn't notice any special intimacy in the production. So if you have the Bedroom Mix for a reasonable price (10ish or less but I'm flexible) please let me know and you've got a sale.

Definitely one of my favorite records ever. Some of the songs are just so calming, like Candy Says and Pale Blue Eyes, lacking that aggressiveness of Heroin from the Velvet Underground and Nico, instead honing in on that blissful apathy of the drug itself. In other places though the record shows some real nice experiments, e.g. The Murder Mystery, which i've heard in so many post-punk (revival) sounds, with its odd structure and krautrock-like piano jam ending. The ending couldn't be nicer with Moe Tucker playing us out with such a nice voice, just like on I'm Sticking With You. This is the perfect driving at night record.
