Umm.... you're not buying the record to listen to.

I couldn't do it. Too much of an investment for me to actually use it for what it was made for. :-b


Dood for that kinda money Velvet Underground themselves better appear in the room when the guy throws it on the turntable. :-b

Well it is The Velvet Underground so its imposable for it to suck. ;-D

But if you;re refering to it maybe being poor quality, yeah that would suck. :-t

BS I'd listen to it, if the guy doesnt he a schmuck. Like I said before they have laser turntables that wont damage it. I'd listen to it once burn a copy and then put it behind glass. ;-D

That be like buying a Hendrix guitar and not playing it, youd have to. You wouldnt rock out with it every night but youd have to play it. :-?

I didn't read through too much of the eBay info there. Are the songs their regular stuff or is it unreleased stuff? If it's stuff that has been released before, buy the freakin CD and put the record on the wall.

That's funny - I was just thinking the same thing. The guy who gets outbid by $1 has to be kicking himself at that point.

Or.... maybe not.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The cyberspace saga of The Velvet Underground's 40-year-old first recording was to continue after fetching a false eBay bid of more than $155,000.

The vintage Velvet was to be auctioned online again starting Thursday afternoon. The original bid bit the dust earlier this month when a young man in California e-mailed the seller and confessed he doesn't have enough money to buy the rare recording.

"Seriously, I can barely afford gas for my car to get to work," reads part of the message the seller says he got via eBay.
