Velvet Underground Record for Sale Again
The cyberspace saga of the Velvet Underground's 40-year-old first recording continued Thursday, with a new eBay auction that followed a false winning bid of more than $155,000.
That bid last week bit the dust when a young man in California e-mailed the seller confessing he doesn't even have enough money to buy gas, never mind the rare recording.
The first auction ended Dec. 8, with eBay showing a final bid of $155,401
for the music that ended up on the influential New York band's first
album,"The Velvet Underground & Nico." Warren Hill, a collector in
Montreal who owns the acetate LP, says he bought it at a Manhattan flea
market for 75 cents in 2002.
