| Neglected Masterpiece
The full version of this short video has turned up on youtube. It is a brilliant introduction to the "real" Nico. By "real" I mean that later part of her career, after the Velvet Underground where she sang Lou Reed written songs, and her first album Chelsea Girl where she had a single shared writing credit and song arrangements that she hated. Evening of Light is a song from her first self-penned album The Marble Index with arrangements by John Cale. It is like nothing you will have heard before. Even 45 years later it still sounds stunningly original.

The film, presumably made as a promotion piece for the new album, is gloriously obscure and obtuse. Nico is singing at her best. She has abandoned the blond, tailored look of the Velvet Underground in favour of the sackcloth look with red hair.

I wouldn't even dare attempt an explanation of what it all means, but as a document of one of rock's greatest originals, this is a beautiful piece of art.
