German chanteuse, Nico - she of the icy gaze, the droning voice and the appearance on the first Velvet Underground LP - released The End 40 years ago. To celebrate, British label Music On Vinyl is releasing a 2 LP set on 180 gram vinyl. In addition to the original songs from the John Cale produced record, the new version of The End includes several Peel sessions and two cuts from the British TV show, 'The Old Grey Whistle Test'. This pressing marks the first time any of those songs have been available on vinyl.
The deluxe version of Nico's The End is out on Music On Vinyl on November 3. Watch a clip below that includes audio of "Secret Side" recorded during the sessions for the 'Old Grey Whistle Test'.
