Velvet Underground – Band & Author Signed ‘New York Art’ Book / Boxed Deluxe Ltd. Edition Signed by Lou Reed, Moe Tucker, Doug Yule
A rare boxed, limited edition of Johan Kugelberg’s highly acclaimed 2009 book The Velvet Underground: New York Art, signed by Lou Reed, Moe Tucker and Doug Yule of the Velvet Underground and author Johan Kugelberg.
This definitive and long-out-of-print chronicle of the Velvets is filled with never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, concert posters, handwritten lyrics, clippings, interviews and contributions from band members Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Doug Yule. At 320 pages, measuring 9 1/4″ x 12 1/4″, this is truly the first and only Velvet Underground art book.
At the time of the book’s release, this Deluxe Limited Edition was produced, housed in a clamshell box with gold stamped cover art derived from a rare concert poster. Kugelberg told us the band members only signed about 15o copies of the planned edition size of 400. Oddly, Doug Yule’s signature is probably the rarest of the three signees (his signature is a bit smeared, as it is on every copy he signed.)
This edition, which sold out immediately, included an exclusive 7″ single with previously unreleased versions of the Velvets tracks ‘Real Good Time Together’ and ‘If You Close The Door’ and a CD of these tracks, housed in an oversize stiff cardboard enclosure, hand signed by Lou Reed, Moe Tucker and Doug Yule.
This book, single and CD are in mint condition, while the insert and fragile box are near mint.
A very rare opportunity to obtain genuine Velvet Underground autographs on a limited edition version of this essential–and now rare and expensive– publication. With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
