Velvet Underground: Loaded (Cotillion Import)

Jonathon Green, Oz, January 1971

BACK IN ILLUSORY flower power 1967, when most people wanted to go to San Francisco, and those who didn't made up for it by pickling their skulls in acid, the Velvet Underground, plus Nico, released their first album. The only drug they mentioned was Heroin, the chicks were based around Sacher-Masoch and de Sade. Not a number for the love-freaks.
