Draped in Velvet: A Collection of Velvet Underground Covers

     It was often said in the 1980s that the Velvet Underground sold very few albums, but everyone who bought one formed their own band.  Consequently, for a band with a relatively limited output, there are a lot of great covers.  Here's seventeen of them to enjoy on lazy Fall Sunday mornings.
