which album is the best/first one to buy.
I already have The Velvet Underground and Nico.
Definitely her best album with john cale at the helm of the instrumental arrangements. Pretty dark stuff, though, don't expect it to be anything like The Velvet Underground and Nico or you'll be dissapointed.
is Chelsea Girl good?
I love These Days...
but completely unrepresentative of the rest of her musical output which leans towards the avant-garde and classical. I find the string arrangements on Chelsea Girl overly twee, but it's a nice little folk record nonetheless.
the two Nico songs i've heard sound pretty close to her VU work.
I might try and get both then
The Marble Index is probably the best.
