This is a really really good interview - Lou obviously feels very relaxed talking with Vin and opens up in a way that seems unimaginable later in his carreer. He appeared on the show again in 1998, and was similarly expansive.

(Bobby Marchan: "Something On My Mind")
01
02
(Lou Reed: "What's Good")
