Lou Reed
"Rock n' Roll Animal" (Vinyl)

It would seem I've stumbled through the glam rock aisle in my collection.  With Bowie's "Station to Station" reviewed a couple days ago, I'm hitting another vein of interest.  Now all I need is some T. Rex...

This live album was recorded and released in 1973 during Lou Reed's glam rock incarnation; quite the contrast to his time with Warhol's Velvet Underground.

It's well mixed for a live album.  Vocals and (especially) guitars are brought prominently to the front to enjoy the energy between Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter.
