Nico - The Marble Index CD

The second album by Nico and a classic of its cold, undefinable type, especially considering it was released in 1968! John Cale's arrangements rule too. Very nicely remastered from the original tapes and it even includes two bonus, never before heard tracks!

"The Marble Index is one of the most uncompromising albums ever to be filed under rock; the first to abandon conventional structures and instrumentation, it was really the product of two European sensibilities - Nico's and John Cale's, the glacial mood and now-deepened voice of one allied to the astonishingly imaginative musicianship of the other. The key to it lay in her espousal of a small portable Indian harmonium which she had bought, mastered in a basic sort of way, and used as the tool of not just performance but of composition...the plainness of the material left Cale plenty of room in which to display his matchless command of contrasting and sometimes conflicting sonorities."-Richard Williams.
