Nico's third solo album, 1970's Desertshore, has long been out of print. This reissue includes audio mastered from the original tapes and previously unreleased photos of Nico by Guy Webster.

1970's Desertshore, co-produced by her Velvet Underground band mate John Cale, like much of Nico's early work, has grown in stature with the passing of time, and alongside Chelsea Girl as some of her most accessible work.

The iconic music journalist Lester Bangs wrote, “The Marble Index is the greatest piece of 'avant-garde classical', 'serious' music of the last half of the 20th century so far,” and the New Yorker recently hailed both records as “austere miracles of will and invention.”
