One for the Christmas list?

CBC reports Montrealer Warren Hill purchased an in-studio acetate of The Velvet Underground and Nico on the street in New York four years ago for seventyfive cents. The one of a kind cutting was recorded in April 1966 at New York's Scepter Studios and features different versions of songs which later appeared on the commercial release in 1967. The item, called "arguably the rarest and most important rock'n'roll and pop-art artifact in the world" is on auction at eBay. Bidding ends tonight and is currently fetching $155,301.
