The Very Best of The Velvet Underground is a compilation album by The Velvet Underground. It was released in Europe on March 31, 2003, by Polydor, the record label that oversees the band's Universal Music Group back catalog.
The Velvet Underground was a pioneering experimental rock band from New York City first active from 1965 to 1973. Its best-known lineup consisted of vocalist/guitarist Lou Reed, bassist/violist John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison and drummer Maureen Tucker. The band also collaborated with Nico for their debut album in 1967, under the supervision of producer and pop artist Andy Warhol. Some see The Velvet Underground as being a bridge between the pacifist themes of the late 60s and the sheer chaos and indifference of the mid-70s punk movement.
Since 1990 or so, every few years someone at whatever corporate entity that happens to own the bulk of the Velvet Underground's catalog decides to take a stab at compiling a single-disc "greatest-hits" album from the band's wildly influential body of work, and in 2006 the British branch of Universal/Polydor presented the latest entry in this ongoing project. with the 18-track collection The Very Best of the Velvet Underground

However, the album’s emotional centrepiece, Pale Blue Eyes, comes before them and ranks as Reed’s best love song. Sometimes I feel so happy, Sometimes I feel so sad, Reed says to his lover; Morrison’s subtle guitar and Tucker’s tambourine create a gentle foil for him to confess his feelings. The bittersweet clincher comes later, with the revelation: The fact that you are married, Only proves you’re my best friend. His delivery comes with a sigh of defeat. For Reed, at least for now, absolution would have to wait.

Very Best Of. Import. Audio CD, Import, February 7, 2006. Velvet Underground is just one of those bands you can lay back, burn some incense and relax. You get your moneys' worth from this one. It's a long . I could play this one over and over and never get tired of it. Mellow and alluring are two words I'd use to describe their music. 3 people found this helpful.
