5.0 out of 5 stars LOU REED Glowing in PUNK ROCK recognition November 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
RCA's no frill's 5CD box set release series of OOP or hard to find classics from the rock and jazz scene of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s is an excellent way to fill up a rock collection, without going broke. You get five CDs, well mastered, in individual cardboard sleeves that replicate the Vinyl LP artwork, tho they are never gatefolds. The five CDs are protected in a thick cardboard sleeves, with photos of the albums and their track lists on the back. No liner notes nor session notes as to whom's playing on what album are provided. (Unless this album info was printed on the outside of the original LP cover, and with gatefolds, or inner LP sleeves, it often wasnt.) I've been completely pleased with every RCA's Original Album Classics box set I've bought. If i want session notes, I go on the internet like the rest of humanity. These series of albums, found in the second LOU REED SOLO collection, mostly deal with Lou's Street Life in NYC, hitting his 30s still alive and kicking. The Punk Rock revolution treated Lou really well, as the Velvet Underground had finally gained wider acknowledgement with a new generation of punks. The set starts with Lou Reed's live album :

1. ROCK N ROLL ANIMAL 1974 (Dick Wagner,Steve Hunter-Guitars, Pentti Glan-Drums, Prakash John-Bass, Ray Colord-Keys) This live album record at the Brooklyn Academy of Music wasnt exactly LOVED by the critics of its day, but the people loved it, and loved seeing super skinny, super strung out LOU in his leathers and dog colar sing versions of Velvet Underground songs, and material from Berlin and Transformer. These songs are hard, metalic, and it was MY first Lou Reed album. This album included extra songs not found on the Vinyl. 1. Intro/Sweet Jane 2.Heroin 3.How Do You Think it Feels? 4.Caroline Says I 5.
