Jam of the Week: The Velvet Underground

vu

Artist: The Velvet Underground

Album: Loaded

Genre: Art Rock (US)

Date: 1970

Sound: VU Album “Loaded” With Hits

Cool Stuff: In honor of Lou Reed’s passing yesterday, we’ve got to honor him by breaking out the tunes and jamming out. This week is an album that I’ve listened to more than any other (at least according to my iTunes anyway), called Loaded. Pretty much the opposite of their timeless/artsy/pioneering Velvet Underground & Nico album, this one was meant to be a commercial success “loaded” with hits. Released after Lou Reed had left the band, it went on to become a classic. So we’ll salute the late and great Lou Reed by enjoying his jamtastic hits, being the great songwriter and that he was. And badass. Dude was definitely a badass.
