Velvet Underground – Sterling Morrison’s Stage and Album Cover Worn Psychedelic Outfit
A psychedelic shirt and pair of pants worn by Velvet Underground founding member and guitarist Sterling Morrison, on stage and in photographs with the Velvets.
The accompanying letter of authenticity from Morrison’s widow, Martha Morrison notes, in part, that “in the late 1960s…each member of the band was given an outfit by a boutique in one of the towns on a tour. The wore the new clothes on stage that night. Sterling’s pants are made of orange velveteen. His shirt is voile with a water-color like print in peach and light blue.”
Morrison can be seen wearing this outfit in a color photograph of the band, each wearing their own psychedelic pants and shirts, used on the cover of the compilation album 1969, in the CD reissue of Loaded entitled Fully Loaded, and in a press photo used to promote Todd Haynes 2021 documentary The Velvet Underground.
