The Velvet Underground
"I Heard Her Call My Name"

The Velvet Underground
White Light/White Heat
(Verve Records, 1968)

And then my mind split open . . .

Favorite Guitar Solos Week draws to a close with the greatest guitar solo ever in the history of recorded music, from the second album by The Velvet Underground, 1968's White Light/White Heat. Now, there's crazy soloing all over the place here, so, to be more specific, I mean the solo starting at roughly the -2:20 mark, right after Lou "Walk on the Wild Side" Reed says the above line.
