For a Lou reed fan, this is a rare treat to see how the Transformer album was made track by track, with documentary input by all concerned (musicians and technicians) and new acoustic versions of key tracks performed by Lou. It's great to hear Bowie, Mick Ronson, Herbie Flowers and others describe the working environment around the making of the album, and Lou'd temperamental idiosyncracies. The material is detailed enough for hard-core fans but sufficiently general as to be a virtual time-capsule of the early 70s for fans of the era. Above all, it's amusing! - it's really funny to watch Lou back in the studio poring over the master tapes, offering up anecdote after anecdote. As for the scenes with the original Walk on the Wild Side characters, Little Joe and Holly, they are hilarious! The dvd comes with added bonus interviews so it's worth the extra couple of pounds.
