The End.

.. is the fourth studio album by Nico, released in 1974. The album is her fifth collaboration with John Cale and second with him as producer. It carries the same harmonium-based sound heard on The Marble Index and Desertshore, with the addition of Brian Eno’s synthesizersand electronic instruments. The song “You Forget To Answer” tells of the misery felt by Nico when she failed to reach ex-lover Jim Morrison by phone only to find out later that he had died. All but two of the songs on the album were written by Nico: the cover ofThe Doors’ “The End” and a version of the German national anthem “Das Lied Der Deutschen”. Brian Eno performs synthesizer on “It Has Not Taken Long”, “You Forgot to Answer” and “Innocent and Vain”. Being 40 years since the album originally came out, we’re adding a whole LP to the package with bonus material from 74/75, previously unavailable on vinyl!
