This DVD is an intimate visual record of the former Velvet Underground frontman's legendary, sold-out engagement at the now closed Bottom Line in New York City. This concert may well be the closest many will ever get to this elusive rock artist, since his

In this video Lou Reed is back at the Bottom Line Club in N.Y., backed by the band from 'The Blue Mask' and 'Legendary Hearts,' the early 80's albums that signalled a major comeback for Reed. Robert Quine on guitar, Fernando Saunders on bass and Fred Maher on drums would continue to work with Reed throughout the decade, and Saunders is still working with Lou now. But it's the music that makes this a night to remember. Classic rockers such as "Sweet Jane" and "Waiting for the Man" are interspersed with terrific versions of "Martial Law" and "Waves of Fear." This is Lou Reed at a vibrant and creative time in his career, able to present older material such as "Kill Your Sons" and "Satellite of Love" with the same energy and originality with which he invests his newer songs. One bonus - you can catch Andy Warhol in the audience and if you read his diaries you will find a refernce to this performance. Lou appears a little apprehensive at times during the show, less confident than at other times during his career, but that does not impair his performance one bit. Wait for the backstage comments at the end of the show when he describes hitting a "perfect note" which lifts him up away from the stage and into the audience. This is a tight, controlled rock 'n' roll show which all Lou Reed fans will enjoy, both new and old.

A relic from the Robert Quine days of Lou's career, and...along with the excellent "Live In Italy" CD...the only other "official" concert release. Quine is rightfully credited as the man who got Lou to pick up the guitar again, and that revived interest produced some pretty entertaining "right channel, left channel" battles. 4 stars instead of 5 because Lou never really cuts loose here like he did on the "Live In Italy" 17-minute medley of "Some Kinda Love / Sister Ray." You do get Lou "floating" (as he describes it backstage after the show) during the guitar solo to "Kill Your Sons." Like Ringo Starr said in a recent issue of Rolling Stone, in regard to seeing Bob Dylan in concert, "You go to Bob's gig, and you get what Bob wants to give you." Same holds true for Lou. On some nights the genius comes out. On other nights, the genius phones it in. On the "Night With Lou Reed" DVD, you'll see about 4/5ths of the genius...not bad, not definitive, just Lou on one New York night, and worth every penny of the $13.49 that Amazon is charging. LOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

This may be the perfect Lou Reed primer. It is all there. All of the accessible music from the VU days up to the early 80's. The late Robert Quine on guitar and Fernando Saunders on bass act as amazing foils to Lou's wonderful simple and oh so complicated songs. If you are a fan of Lou's music or just looking ot better understand why he is so often mentioned as the father/grandfather of modern and post modern rock, this is the first step to understanding.

I bought this when it first came out on Beta videocassette. Probably the best live show available and possibly the best band he ever had. If you like The Blue Mask/Legendary Hearts era Lou Reed you will enjoy this.

This has all my Reed favorites. Incredible performance. At one point between songs, the camera settles on who I believe is Andy Warhol in the crowd.
