Original 1st US Mono release of The Velvet Underground & Nico with Andy Warhol’s iconic pop art banana sticker released by Verve Records on March 12, 1967. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to assume that the currently listed copy is one of the last examples remaining in the factory sealed condition. This is one of the earliest copies pressed in March~June, 1967 when Verve Records withdrew the album in June due to the lawsuit threat by actor Eric Emerson whose upside-down image projected behind the band was used on the album’s back cover without his consent. After the album was withdrawn by Verve, the company affixed a large black sticker on the already existing covers on the top of the image and airbrushed it completely on the subsequent pressings. Original withdrawn 1st state uncensored gatefold cover still remains in a Mint factory sealed condition. The shrink wrap is fully intact and doesn't have any splits, tears or missing pieces containing two factory breathe holes on each side of the album. The top right corner of the front cover contains a pink record store “Sealed For Your Protection” sticker affixed to the shrink wrap. Incredible copy of one of the most influential rock and pop albums which occupies the 13th spot in the Rolling Stone Magazine’s “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time”.
