Transformer (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition White Vinyl
This year marks a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, and on July 24 we'll be celebrating our 100th birthday in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce the new 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday July 24 and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
Despite the outsized influence of The Velvet Underground on generations of musicians that followed, Lou Reed enjoyed more commercial success as a solo artist than he ever did with his former band and his second solo offering, 1972’s Transformer, remains not only one of his biggest-selling albums, but also one of the finest he released during his long career.
Co-produced by David Bowie, who had been an early Velvet Underground fan and was determined to help Reed break into the mainstream, the album includes two bona-fide classics in ‘Perfect Day’ and ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ and we’re pleased to include Transformer in our exclusive centenary line-up with a limited run of 1000 copies pressed onto white vinyl.
