The Velvet Underground's genre-shattering 1967 debut, THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO, fell on deaf ears initially. In this enthusiastic homage to the pioneering psychedelic icons, Boston-area musician and producer Joe Harvard has pieced together the story of how the ultimately influential and critically acclaimed "Banana Album" came to be. Narrator Marc Vietor tackles Harvard’s frank and often-explicit missive with an eager and edgy delivery, evoking the author's earlier years in upstart bands and placing the listener in the heart of the Lower East Side scene. With zeal Vietor recites interviews from those directly involved and from those who were simply part of the times, including Andy Warhol, Jonathan Richman, and Iggy Pop.
