3.0 out of 5 stars Somebody shoot the sax player! 21 Feb 2013
By Klausk
This is a radio broadcast from the Roxy Theatre LA 1976. Its been doing the rounds as a bootleg for many years, so nothing new really. However the good points, well because it's a adio broadcast its reasonably well recorded. Reed seems in good voice. The album that was out at the time, was the pretty tame "Rock'n Roll Heart" so we get a couple of tracks off of that, nothing to write home about. Incidently I used to visit a record shop in Euston run by frenchman Larry DeBay [ a really great guy, with wild long hair and a beard ] Debay used to look at what I bought elsewhere that day and commented honestly, too honest sometimes! on what i had purchased. He took one look at Rock'n Roll Heart,which i had just bought on import, and said "Diss iz Sheeet!" I was outraged at the time, but when I got it home and played it, he was right! A real disppointment, many Reed albums of the time - next was Street Hassle! Apart from the title track the rest was similarly dreary. People forget that because the title track was really good - a brief return to what he was capable of, had he not been zonked out of his head at the time.

The band for this recording was Micheal Fonfera, Micheal Suchorsky, Bruce Yaw, Reed guitar [ although you can barely hear it ] and the truly terrible Marty Fogel on sax and trumpet [ although Don Cherry was touring with Reed later on, but its not his style that's played here, well not to my ears ] Forgel's awful farty sax can be heard all over this recording...I can barely stand it to be honest. However it is a recording of the times. Reed was overdosed on his belief that he was "cutting edge!" when he was completely out of touch really.

3.0 out of 5 stars historical 10 April 2013
By Victor Preston VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
it is good to have this if only for for historical value.
if you really want to hear lou reed live in the seventies.
buy rock 'n' roll animal, this always gets missed
when they compile lists of the best live albums.
you should also get live '69 by the velvet underground.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but some sound faults 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase
A good performance from Lou and the overall the sound quality is pretty good. Be aware though that there are some sound faults (eg on Sweet Jane) and these are more obvious on some players than others. They are most noticeable when there is a clear separation between the right and left channels (such as on headphones). On other players you might not notice at all on a casual listen. This isn't just my copy - try the mp3 samples as well. It's also the same issue on the identical 'Winter at the Roxy'.
Overall, probably less relevant as a recording now that 'Thinking of Another Place' has been released and it is a shame about the faded end on 'Coney Island Baby'
