Velvet Underground – Nico – Nico Handwritten & Signed Postcard
A note card, written and signed by Velvet Underground icon Nico to her friend and A&R man, Danny Fields. Nico and Danny knew each other from Warhol's Factory, and he signed her in the late 1960's to Elektra Records (Fields is best known as the man who discovered and signed the MC5 and Stooges while at Elektra, later going on to manage both bands.) Nico stayed in regular contact with Fields, and wrote this card to him in February 1969. It reads in full "Dear Danny, Variano Caianello is a small village station. Am embarking a slow train for Rome in a moment. My car broke down coming down from Positano. It took three hours & now I am back with Phillipe aat the clinic. He is getting back to normal. Ciao ! Nico." Nico signatures are rare enough; handwritten letters are virtually never seen. This one, written during the 60's to a close associate, mentions Phillipe Garrel, her partner of 10 years and award winning French film director. He made 7 films featuring Nico, and their relationship, beginning the year this was written, lasted 10 years. In overall excellent condition. Included is a 6 3/4" x 8 3/4" photograph of Nico (from Danny Fields collection and likely unpublished), suitable for framing. Guaranteed authentic with no time limit.
