The Velvet Underground & Nico album, also referred to as "The Banana Album" designed by Andy Warhol - who also produced it - was released in March 1967. Most of the songs were recorded the previous year in a run-down studio before the band even had a record contract. Verve had decided to add alternative music to their label and picked up the group's recordings.
