A BREAKDOWN OF THE ARTIST/S :-

Born Lewis Allen Reed (also Firbank), 2 March 1942, Freeport, Long Island, New York, USA. A member of several high-school bands, Reed made his recording debut with the Shades in 1957. Their "So Blue" enjoyed brief notoriety when played by influential disc jockey Murray The K, but was lost in the multitude of independent singles released in this period. Having graduated from Syracuse University, Reed took a job as a contract songwriter with Pickwick Records, which specialized in cash-in, exploitative recordings. His many compositions from this era included "The Ostrich" (1965), a tongue-in-cheek dance song that so impressed the label hierarchy that Reed formed the Primitives to promote it as a single. The band also included a recent acquaintance, John Cale, thus sowing the early seeds of the Velvet Underground. Reed led this outstanding unit between 1966 and 1970, contributing almost all of the material and shaping its ultimate direction. His songs, for the most part, drew on the incisive discipline of R&B, while pointed lyrics displayed an acerbic view of contemporary urban life.

Reed's departure left a creative vacuum within the band, yet he too seemed drained of inspiration following the break. He sought employment outside of music and two years passed before Lou Reed was released. Recorded in London with UK musicians, including Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman from Yes, the set boasted some excellent songs - several of which were intended for the Velvet Underground - but was marred by an indistinct production. Nonetheless, an attendant UK tour with the Tots, a group of New York teenagers, was an artistic success. David Bowie, a long-time Velvet Underground aficionado, oversaw Transformer, which captured a prevailing mood of decadence. Although uneven, it included the classic "Walk On The Wild Side", a homage to transsexuals and social misfits drawn to artist and film-maker Andy Warhol. This explicit song became a surprise hit, reaching the UK Top 10 and US Top 20 in 1973, but Reed refused to become trapped by the temporary nature of the genre and returned to the dark side of his talents with Berlin. By steering a course through sado-masochism, attempted suicide and nihilism, the artist expunged his new found commerciality and challenged his audience in a way few contemporaries dared. Yet this period was blighted by self-parody, and while a crack back-up band built around guitarists Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter provided undoubted muscle on the live Rock n Roll Animal, Sally Can't Dance showed an artist bereft of direction and purpose.

Having sanctioned a second in-concert set, Reed released the stark Metal Machine Music, an electronic, atonal work spaced over a double album. Savaged by critics upon release, its ill-synchronized oscillations have since been lauded by elitist sections of the avant garde fraternity, while others view its release as a work of mischief in which Reed displayed the ultimate riposte to careerist convention. It was followed by the sedate Coney Island Baby, Reed's softest, simplest collection to date, the inherent charm of which was diluted on Rock 'N' Roll Heart, a careless, inconsequential collection that marked an artistic nadir. However, its successor, Street Hassle, displayed a rejuvenated power, resuming the singer's empathy with New York's subcultures. The title track, later revived by Simple Minds, was undeniably impressive, while "Dirt" and "I Wanna Be Black" revealed a wryness missing from much of the artist's solo work. Although subsequent releases, The Bells and Growing Up in Public, failed to scale similar heights, they offered a new-found sense of maturity.

Reed entered the 80s a stronger, more incisive performer, buoyed by a fruitful association with guitarist Bob Quine (Born Robert Quine, 30 December 1942, Akron, Ohio, USA, d. c. 31 May 2004, Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA), formerly of Richard Hell's Voidoids. The Blue Mask was another purposeful collection and set a pattern for the punchy, concise material found on Legendary Hearts and Mistrial. However, despite the promise these selections offered, few commentators were prepared for the artistic rebirth found on 1989"s New York. Here the sound was stripped to the bone, accentuating the rhythmic pulse of compositions that focused on the seedy low-life that Reed excels in chronicling. His lyrics, alternately pessimistic or cynical, reasserted the fire of his best work as the artist regained the power to paint moribund pictures that neither ask, nor receive, pity. New York was a splendid return to form and created considerable interest in his back-catalogue. The following year's Songs For "Drella was a haunting epitaph for Andy Warhol on which Reed collaborated with John Cale, and the downbeat mood carried over to the superb Magic And Loss, an album inspired by the death of legendary songwriter Doc Pomus. Both albums demonstrated another facet of the dramatic regeneration that had placed this immensely talented artist back at rock's cutting edge.

In 1993, Reed joined together with his legendary colleagues for a high-profile Velvet Underground reunion. Although it was short-lived (rumours of an old feud with Cale resurfacing abounded), Reed had the benefit of being able to fall back on his solo work. Set The Twilight Reeling saw Reed in a remarkably light-hearted mood, perhaps inspired by a romantic partnership with Laurie Anderson, although he was still capable of causing controversy with the satirical "Sex With Your Parents (Motherfucker)". Anderson also appeared as one of several guest singers on a cover version of Reed's "Perfect Day", released in 1997 to promote BBC Radio and Television. Perfect Night documented a 1996 concert at London's Royal Festival Hall. Ecstasy received some favourable reviews, although the ultimate result was a patchy album, very good in places ("Paranoia Key Of E", "Baton Rouge") and poor in others, notably the 18-minute-plus "Like A Possum'. His first new recording of the 21st century, a sprawling multi-media epic inspired by the work of 19th century horror writer Edgar Allen Poe, drew an equally mixed response. In July 2004, Reed returned to the UK Top 10 courtesy of London based production team Dab Hands" remix of the Transformer track "Satellite Of Love".

Reed's future work will always be scrutinized and chewed over by rock critics, young and old; he is, after all, one of the most important rock poets of the modern age. His influence is immense and his capacity to surprise remains just around the corner.

THE HISTORY OF THE RECORD :- Lou Reed Live is a live album by Lou Reed, released in 1975. It was recorded at the same concert as Rock 'n' Roll Animal ; on December 21, 1973, at Howard Stein's Academy of Music in New York. It features three songs from Transformer, one song from The Velvet Underground & Nico (Reed's former band's debut album) and two songs from Berlin. Between this album and the remastered Rock 'n' Roll Animal the entire show has been released, albeit in a different order than the original concert setlist.

THE COVER :- Single Textured sleeve

THE LABEL :- RCA labels

THE VINYL VISUALLY :- On initial inspection of this piece of vinyl I cannot see any areas of immediate concern. The vinyl sits perfectly flat on the turntable so there are no nasty warps to worry about. The vinyl still retains its just pressed quality, full of deep shine and lustre. I have only noted one very tiny scratch on Side Two. A lovely piece of vinyl. Excellent Plus visually.

THE VINYL PLAY GRADED :- The playgrading of the vinyl reveals no lessening in the sound quality. It lives up to its visual grading. There is very minimal surface noise. What there is can be only heard on the run in and run out of tracks and extra quiet areas of the album but generally in the dead wax and between tracks. The sound quality is high with a full dynamic range and very detailed sound. I feel certain this album has been played carefully and stored well over the years. I would grade the audio playback as Excellent condition.

THE SLEEVE FRONT CONDITION :- This is the very earliest 1st press textured Clout & Baker sleeve. The front of the sleeve is free from writing, free from stickers or evidence of previously removed stickers. The sleeve reveals some mild ringwear and no creases. There is some corner and seam wear. The colours are bright and crisp. I would grade the front of the cover as Excellent condition.

THE SLEEVE REAR CONDITION :- The rear of the sleeve is free from writing, free from stickers or evidence of previously removed stickers. There are no creases on the rear of the sleeve but some mildish ringwear. Just some  corner and seam wear. Again the rear still retains its original crisp colours and just pressed feel. I would grade the rear as Excellent condition.

THE LABEL SIDE ONE CONDITION :- Original RCA label in excellent order free from stickers or writing and no damage at all, light signs of play around the spindle hole and a little bubbling. Excellent condition.

THE LABEL SIDE TWO CONDITION :- Original RCA label in excellent order free from stickers or writing and no damage at all, light signs of play around the spindle hole. Near Mint condition.

THE SPINE CONDITION :-  No spine splits at all but signs of shelfwear in the two corners and some along the length. Very Good condition

THE INNER SLEEVE CONDITION :- Generic white inner in Excellent condition

THE EXTRAS :- No extras were given with this album
