is a Innocent and Vain: an Introduction to Nico compilation album by Nico. It was released for the European market by Polydor in 2002 as part of their "An Introduction To" series of budget compilations.
Innocent and Vain, named after one of Nico's songs, is a retrospective album that consists of songs from ( Chelsea Girl Polydor, 1967) and ( The End... Island, 1974). It also includes two tracks from her 1967 collaboration with The Velvet Underground on ( The Velvet Underground & Nico Verve, 1967). Because of Polydor's budget approach, no licensing of ( The Marble Index Elektra, 1969) or ( Desertshore Reprise, 1970) which Nico recorded in this period, was possible.
