Lab Overview

"Sister Ray." End of review. Okay, I'm being told I have to write more here, but seriously - how can you pass up the Velvets' classic second album in a noice repro sleeve, on translucent purple vinyl?? I know I can't. The aforementioned "Ray" is probably the definitive statement in the VU catalog, a 17+ minute paean to scag, transvestites and death in late 60s NYC that closes out the record in spectacular fashion. There's also the punchy, punky title track, the woozy and actually pretty hilarious "Lady Godiva's Operation," "I Heard Her Call My Name" and the Cale spoken word piece "The Gift." But seriously - "Sister Ray."
