    Anyone picking this up? I believe there will be two incarnations of this double-disc Deluxe Edition set, both streeting on June 25th. One is a limited edition with a peelable banana on the cover. The other is a standard 2-disc set. Both have an MSRP of $29.99.

    Sounds like it isn't an essential upgrade, but I'm always intrigued by these Deluxe Edition sets and I love the VU so I might spring for it. Here's a review from the All Music Guide:

    Sounds good, great even - I have the LOADED special CD release and this seems just as nifty - but all of a sudden I'm pondering if SACD releases of these titles will ever come to fruition. I guess this is one album I can stand buying again...

    Ehhh... I'm a pretty big VU fan, but I don't need this. Mono mix, stereo mix... whatever. And any REAL VU fan already owns Chelsea Girl! [​IMG]

    Oh, I'm torn. I am a fan of gimmicky packaging.
