180 gram vinyl. The Marble Index is the second studio album by German musician Nico. She initially became famous as a Warhol Superstar in the 60s. Nico is known for both her vocal collaboration on the Velvet Underground's debut album, The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967) and her work as a solo artist from the late 60s through the 80s.Originally released in 1969, The Marble Index was produced by Frazier Mohawk. Critic Simon Reynolds described the album as "one of the most harrowing and death-fixated albums in Rock history". The album was written by Nico and features musical arrangements by John Cale, who had worked briefly with Nico during her collaboration with The Velvet Underground. The music of the album was a new style for Nico, distancing herself from Rock and Pop. The album also unveiled Nico's songwriting, as her debut solo album Chelsea Girl featured none of her compositions. A classic!
