The Velvet Underground – The Velvet Underground & Nico
This 1967 classic bombed upon release, and only 30,000 copies were pressed. Nowadays, rare first pressings are valuable. An acetate LP of what would eventually become the band’s debut sold for £25,530 in 2002. You’ll be hard put to get anywhere near that, but original, good quality pressings can still reach a few hundred pounds. Look for a copy with a peelable banana sticker covering Eric Emerson's torso.
