I've always liked Lou Reed's version of 'Ocean'(as bad as that first solo album is) until i heard the original Velvet underground version of it.Blinding!

I haven't heard the s/t, but I gotta go with the majority from the other three. WL/WH is flawless. I keep picking up the s/t and putting it down. I'll buy it one of these days, if it's the last thing I do...

I've only heard The VU & Nico and Loaded. Out of those two, I pick Loaded. A percet pop album.

the first and White Light... are nearly equal in importance to me, and if the poll let me, I'd have picked both. I gave the nod to White Light becuz of Sister Ray...

They are all really close. I chose White Light/White Heat though. There is no denying the magic of the Gift. White Light/White Heat seems to be the most out there to me, even though it is less noisy than Peel. I think there is something special about it in my mind. Velvet Underground and Peel Slowly and See are right up there. Loaded is good but I don't like it as much.

Ya that was talked about in the documentary. I listened to it after, and the organ part they mentioned is hilarious. It completely drowns out Lou's voice.

"the gift" from white light is a great song to jam on instrumentally, i might add.

you know, there's an organ in the attic. i don't know if it works, but i should try and drag that down here. or make someone else do it while i sit on my ass and drink beer.

Yea it is. SO much so that the song's music is one channel and the cale in the other... so if you want you can turn the balance all the way left (or right) and jus thear the band jam. This also works on murder mystery... one side lou composed and the other was sterling. Cool lil trick.

i got my organ for twenty dollars. i love it. hard as hell to get home though.

i think i will go with VU&Nico. i haven't heard WL/WH or VU yet though.
