The Velvet Underground: The Velvet Underground Boxed Set (Polydor)

Mat Snow, NME, 3 May 1986

WHEN POP-JOURNALISTS say "classic", we mean a record that we’ll still be playing in ten years. Marketing sharpies, however, have a far surer handle on this vague concept: "classic" means Dickens-by-the-yard bound in hand-tooled Kidron. Collected. Collectible. Boxed.
