The 45th anniversary reissue of the Velvet Underground’s self-titled album is upon us, and the six-disc Super Deluxe Edition is stacked: Not only does it include the band’s lost fourth LP, presented as a unit for the first time, and two discs of live material from San Francisco’s famous club The Matrix. There’s also three versions of the original classic LP: a stereo remaster, the intimate “Closet Mix,” a promotional mono mix.
The Super Deluxe Edition is valued at $99.98, but we’re giving away a copy for free. To enter this sweepstakes, you need be a fan of Stereogum on Facebook and comment below with your favorite Velvet Underground song via Facebook Connect login (do not use your ‘Gum user account on this post — we’ll have to be able to check if you are a fan of Stereogum on FB when the sweepstakes ends). Winner will be chosen randomly. Sweepstakes ends on 12/18 at 6PM EST. Good luck!
