The record, which was the group’s first without founding violist John Cale and is home to the single “What Goes On” and fan favorites “Pale Blue Eyes” and “Candy Says,” will now be the centerpiece of a 65-track set, housed in a case-bound book, with many different mixes of the songs. The reissue will also be available as a single-disc remastered album and as a two-disc deluxe edition, featuring 12 selections from a concert the group played at the San Francisco club the Matrix in 1969. “We were all feeling good,” bassist Doug Yule told Rolling Stone’s David Fricke for the release’s liner notes. “All we had to do was play, and it showed. That comes out in a band. You get tight, and you get creative.”
