Chelsea Girl: Nico -LP
If you have the opportunity, this should be listened to on vinyl. If all you've got is iTunes and an iPod for all your music needs, that'll work too. This is the first solo album from Nico and one that still echos in the music world. Not to mention it was because of this album that we have "The Royal Tenenbaums." That is, Wes Anderson first thought of the movie as a single scene with someone getting off a bus to the tune of "These Days" It all came from there.
