Re: Transmission Impossible

Maybe the Lou Reed archive has access to the full original tapes... Of recordings known to exist, hearing an early version of Men Of Good Fortune has to be one of the ones I most want to hear. Also, I wanted to note, given that they include the song title of any little riff that gets played like Day...

Re: Transmission Impossible

I don't see any mention of the missing tracks? Looks like the same old in a different package.

Re: would you follow lou reed if he hadn't been in VU?

As a lyricist Lou reached a new level post-1988. I think he's a better songwriter in this post-1988 period than he was in the sixties. Musically his 70's stuff falters because he stopped playing lead guitar, and he suffered creatively by drinking too much. But once he gave up the booze and took up t...

Re: Hy Weiss and the writing of "Foggy Notion"

He doesn't include it in his book of lyrics, Pass Thru Fire, which always had me wondering. Though he does exclude a couple others too like Coney Island Steeplechase. Pretty sure it's his lyric anyway.

Re: 3rd Album Deluxe - Bill Levenson drops a hint?

I'd not heard of that one before. Any more detail? , as well as the Hippodrome show from from 68 which he recorded on the same device. . Sorry it's a little daunting trying to find a reference for you but I'm sure I read recently that the recorder used at the Hippodrome gig was a wollensak. I could...

Re: 3rd Album Deluxe - Bill Levenson drops a hint?

I'm still hoping for some kind of early years box. But I think John Cale would need to be in on it. Any of the deep down in the vault stuff has gotta come from him. Maybe he'll have a change of heart since Lou's passing. I'd love to see a box set that could put together Lou's pickwick recordings tog...

I always thought Coney Island Steeplechase was where The Strokes got their sound.
