Nico: BBC Session 1971 John Paul. Stripping things to their basest elements, the album featured little more than Nico’s increasingly confident stentorian delivery accompanied by circular, wheezing melodic figures played on harmonium. Given this minimalist approach and penchant for repetition, it’s little surprise John Cale remained the only member of the Velvets to continue on with Nico following the release of Chelsea Girl, serving as arranger and producer.

BBC Sessions is a compilation album featuring studio sessions and a live concert recorded by English rock group Led Zeppelin for the BBC. It was released on 11 November 1997, by Atlantic Records.

Bbc Session 1971 EP from Nico (2015) (LP). Regrets? I have no regrets. N. Das sagte Christa Päffgen - Model, Schauspielerin und Sängerin, besser bekannt als Nico. Dann kamen die legendären Jahre mit The Velvet Underground, ihr erstes Solo-Album und schließlich die Verwandlung vom blonden Maskottchen zum dunkelgefärbten und in Schwarz gekleideten Gothic-Girl (oder so ähnlich). Nun kamen die Skandale, und zwar unaufhaltsam bis zur ihrem tragischen Tod. Mitte der 70er verfiel sie dem Heroin und entwickelte dabei ihr eigenes, düsteres Klang-Universum. Die blonde Göttin wurde zu ihrer eigenen Antithese.
