Perhaps Warhol’s most famous cover, The Velvet Underground and Nico was released in 1967. It was released under the Verve label, which was a subsidiary f MGM records. It was numbered V6-5008 for the stereo version and V-5008 for the mono version. The main claim to fame of this cover was the peelable banana, under the instruction, “Peel Slowly and See”. Due to legal concerns, there were multiple versions of the cover’s backside. The original version contained an image of Eric Emerson projected upside down at an Exploding Plastic Inevitables show. He complained that he did not give his permission for his image to be used, and demanded money. Rather than pay him, MGM recalled the album and placed a sticker over the image until an airbrushed version could be completed.
