Lou Reed – Debut Release
Hand signed: All The Best Lou Reed
Lou Reed is the debut solo album by musician Lou Reed, released in 1972 by RCA Records two years after he left The Velvet Underground. The album comprises eight new recordings of then-unreleased Velvet Underground songs, plus two new songs, “Going Down” and “Berlin” (the latter was re-recorded by Reed as the title track for his 1973 album Berlin).
With increasing interest in the Velvet Underground, Reed’s debut album was highly anticipated, but the result was a commercial and critical disappointment, peaking at only number 189 on the Billboard 200.
