    This vover version is known as the “torso” cover. I suppose everyone knows the story of this cover…. The rear cover photo of the Velvet Underground’s live performance in 1966 was raken while the backdrop showed the picture of Eric Emerson’s torso. Ehen Verbe Records released the cover, Eric demanded a fee for the use of his picture. The record company refused and recalled as many covers as it could and slapped a black label over the picture. The cover for later issues was reprinted with Eric’s torso airbrushed out. Hence the covers nickname.
