PEEL SLOWLY AND SEE
the greatest collection of Velvet Underground recordings available.
i am listening to : I’ll be your Mirror” live version. it is nothing short of amazing !!
if you don’t own this box set…please…please…rush out and grab it
it changed my life and my ideas of music, lyrics, art and the beauty in simplistic directions.
the way they approach the songs is quite refreshing even after 1000’s of listens.
i can always count on Lou and the gang to bring me back to the heart of rock and roll
i recently saw the makings of Lou Reeds album “Transformer” which was really cool. the whole time i was watching i couldn’t help but feel like Lou was thinking…yea..it was a cool record, but what about the 100’s of songs i did with the velvet underground ???
I guess Walk on the Wild Side was a huge commercial success. I love the song “Perfect Day” on Transformer. that is my favorite post Velvet Underground song from Lou Reed. just amazing.
The new version of Transformer has a few acoustic demos of Lou just singing the songs into a recorded on his guitar. so bare. one of those songs is Perfect Day.
You can really see where it started and his ability to hear these great melodies over some adventurous chord changes, especially in the bridge. Also, where the song went ….. once it was recorded. the lovely piano and wonderful harmonies David Bowie added !!
I gotta fill my empty glass
hope all you are well…
I am good and the band is coming up with some great songs. this next record we are working on is going to be very exciting. i have not been this eager and excited in quite some time.
until we meet again
