Super rare Velvet Underground acetate for sale


Fans of the Velvet Underground, it’s time to start counting up your copper jar because a super rare VU acetate has been put up for sale on listings site eBay, and bids have reached a staggering $124,000.

The acetate is reported to be the only surviving copy of the Velvets’ debut album, with markedly different versions of classic songs like "Heroin" and "Venus In Furs".

According to the seller, this is "arguably the rarest and most important rock ā€˜nā€™ roll and pop-art artifact in the world".
