Project Description

HOW STRANGE TO be living in a world without Lou Reed. And how would the pop artist/NYC street guy/noise avatar have regarded the outpouring of sadness and affection that followed yesterday’s announcement? A singer who would lay himself emotionally bare alongside that famous orneriness, maybe with the same mixture of poignancy and volume that this lean live version of 1976 LP title track Coney Island Baby displays.

To accompany thoughts after his passing, watch Lou play a beloved classic with Robert Quine.
