Updated list after referring to Unterberger's book:


Wow, this actually totals 33! Could this be a complete list?!

I'd like to add that it is my belief that the first 14 songs on the above list are the songs where Lou is the main contributing songwriter, with the exception of I've Got A Tiger In My Tank where he may have just added some verses to the pre-existing chorus.

Some years ago I put together a 3-CD set based on "Lee Harridan Productions," which amounts to material with Terry Philips as writer and producer. Naturally, there's a lot of overlap with Lou's Pickwick era, and in fact the set includes virtually pre-VU recording with Lou Reed involvement. If there's interest I could find a way to post the set to you'all -- perhaps even make it the basis of one of my every-other-Friday online shows at https://wfmuichiban.blogspot.com/.

I'm definitely interested. I know there is a bunch of stuff I'm still missing.
