Now I would love it someone made list of Must Have Lou Reed Bootlegs! Well, the Chicago 1978 show (Park West) is among the greatest ever! If I could pick a few Lou boots (in no particular order): 1. Sweet Jane (bootleg available as American Poet - and better) 2. The Complete Orpheum '76 Broadcast 3...

And as for "Lou Reed Live" being simply "Rock & Roll Animal" leftovers... I thought that they were simply the rest of the set that wouldn't fit on a one disc live record that was released as "Animal" - am I wrong? That's what I'm saying; instead of making it a double album in the first place those ...

You audiphiles... :lol: I still think the lossless files are nothing but extra hassle with the huge file sizes. I would've been happy with all the stuff as mp3s. But that's just me.

Mistrial and Legendary Hearts , should you buy them? Well, it's getting pretty obvious that if you ask me, yes. Where with the live stuff it's hit and miss ( Rock'n'Roll Animal, Animal Serenade : great, Perfect Night Live In London : not so great, Take No Prisoners , well... make up your own mind!)...
