WHITE LIGHT/WHITE HEAT.

NY: Verve Records, 1968. Stereo LP record (V6-5046; visible skull tattoo on front cover; side A runout etched V6-5046 SIDE 1 MGS-1258; side B runout etched V6-5046 SIDE 2 MGS-1259; sleeve credits Lou Reed for "Vocal, Guitar, Piano", no "lead"; "Three Prong Music" publishing credit on all tracks; "Here She Comes Now" printed correctly on sleeve and label; band name in smaller font size than title on label; no Warhol sleeve credit).

Although Andy Warhol's name does not appear on the sleeve, it was, as Lou Reed explained to Gerard Malanga in a letter dated December 23, 1967, his idea to use a black-on-black picture of a motorcyclist tattoo by Billy Name. It reflected the band's intention for their second album to be "consciously anti-beauty" (John Cale).

Together with: an original 8x10 b/w promo photograph showing the band posing with a copy of the record (old corner pinholes; tape marks and partial surface loss to verso).

The album sleeve still has most of its original shrinkwrap (missing only a small portion on the front top right), and apart from slight wear to one lower corner, it's in Near Fine condition (original plain inner sleeve).

Vinyl in excellent state, and judging by the minimal spindle marks, infrequently played.
