''Squeeze'' is the fifth and final studio album by Music/VelvetUnderground (mostly InNameOnly), released in 1973. It is their first and only studio album made after the departures of Music/LouReed and Sterling Morrison. Maureen Tucker - as well as relative newcomers Willie Alexander and Walter Powers were supposed to appear on the album, but were all dismissed by the band manager before recording started. As a result, ''Squeeze'' would become [[IAmTheBand a Doug Yule solo album in all but name]], with him playing the majority of the instruments. Interestingly, Ian Paice of Music/DeepPurple played drums on this album.

* NewSoundAlbum: It's Its sounds unlike anything else by The Velvet Underground, because... well, it isn't being a breezier pop rock album far removed from their traditional art rock style.
