Is 800 Copies of an Album Enough?
Mark Satlof is a record collector who is so obsessive, you could say he's gone "bananas". He has amassed over 800 copies of "The Velvet Underground and Nico" in various editions. His shelves contain first pressings, promo copies, autographed jackets, imports, and alternate covers. But he also has plain-old used copies whose previous owners had drawn or doodled on the covers. One even features inexplicable ice-pick-sized holes.
