New Early Lou LP

Post by iaredatsun » 17 Apr 2014 17:06

Old songs. New format. High price. ?27.

Has those two Beach Boys songs that were being debated recently. And the Heroin demo.

Legit? Somehow I rather doubt it!

Exactly what I was thinking...maybe even the version posted here. Maybe downloaded from MY link!

What was Reed's involvement with the Donnie Burks record, other than as songwriter?

And, where is that cover photo from?

I think the cover photo is from Vogue, of all places - Cale describes it in Welsh for Zen.

I've bought this lp recently. The sound quality form the record is pretty good ... Al the old singles sound a bit noisy/old, but I guess there are no real better sounding alternatives... I should do a comparison to know for sure, but for me these sound ok.
The Heroin demo sounds very good. It's like Lou Reed sitting in your living room. I was quite impressed. I don't think it's recorded from a speaker or something like that. But I can check the difference between the you-tube video and the track on lp.

I've always understood that Lou's only involvement was indeed as a (co) songwriter. I don't think I've ever seen any credible evidence to the contrary

That would be very interesting if "Heroin" isn't sourced from youtube.
