Lou Reed Acoustic Demos from 1970


4 of 5 stars
What’s this?

“In August of 1970 Lou Reed quit The Velvet Underground. This decision was followed by a severe mental breakdown and two long years of regret and isolation… These demos were recorded during the fall and winter of 1970. They reflect Lou at his lowest point. He didn’t make any more live appearances that year after leaving The Velvet Underground. The only thing he recorded were these twelve tracks. They are the first known recordings of Lou Reed as a solo artist.”
