With NEW YORK late NYC genius LOU REED made one of his greatest albums ever. His fifteenth LP appeared on 10 January 1989 and the critics, and fans of course, praised this remarkable record, rightly so, euphorically.
A 3CD/DVD/2LPs deluxe edition is out now. It features a 2020 remaster, and includes
a live version of the entire album on CD assembled from various performances on Lou Reed’s 1989 tour. The second CD features the non-album track ‘The Room’, the solo acoustic rendition of ‘Busload of Faith’ and the single version of ‘Romeo Had Juliette’, as
well as ‘Work Tape’ or ‘Rough Mixes’ of tracks from the album. A couple of encores from
an August 1989 performance at The Mosque in Richmond, Virginia complete this disc.
Pitchfork: “A new reissue highlights the ongoing relevance of Lou Reed’s opus about his hometown in the era of AIDS and Reaganism, a protest album unlike any other.”
