If you aren't all that familiar with the Velvet Underground, here's a great place to start: the band's legendary, self-titled 1969 album will be reissued in honor of the 45th anniversary of its release.

The album, which features the classics 'Candy Says,' 'Pale Blue Eyes' and 'The Murder Mystery,' was the first the band produced and arranged on their own and showcased a marked sonic shift. It was also the band's first album without co-founder John Cale.

The deluxe reissue will span six CDs and 65 tracks along with reworked alternate mixes, live recordings from the Matrix in San Francisco and a case-bound book with liner notes written by Rolling Stone's David Fricke.

You'll be able to pick it up Nov. 24. Get details here.
