Firstly, the sound on this FM Broadcast recording is actually very good. I would suggest that the reviewer who awarded this CD one star and complained that it is a cash in has some kind of alternative agenda. You only need find the MP3 version ( for some reason its not attached but you can easily search) and listen to the MP3 samples - you will discover that it is a fine sounding recording. Lou was in his prime at the time the show was performed and the both the set list and the ambiance of the gig are very special. If you love Lou and his music this is actually a welcome reminder of what a great performer, composer and arranger he was.

Nothing wrong with the performances or song selection, it's just that it's evidently only part of the show, and the sound quality is pretty poor to say the least - really tinny. (It's amazing when you compare the relative sound quality from US radio broadcasts from this era with those by the good old BBC which are infinitely superior.)

However, my biggest beef with this is also connected with one of the highlights; the closing "Coney Island Baby" is sublime - a terrific performance of what I believe to be one of his finest songs. But, but...just as it's taking off into the stratosphere it FADES OUT! No! No! No! Crazy. Particularly when there are three other numbers clocking-in at 10 mins + which aren't nearly so good. So, I'm conflicted when considering whether to listen again to get the pleasure of the first 6 or so minutes in the knowledge that the experience will ultimately be one of frustration. Difficult. However, there is a solution to hand.

Overall, if you want to listen to mid 70s "Rock'n'Roll Heart" era Lou better to go to the recently released double CD set "Thinking of Another Place" with 23 songs (including all 8 featured here). Much better sound, no fade-outs, although a couple of less than great versions (could do without the 9 minute "Intro/Jam" and it's not his best version of "Waiting For The Man"). But you do get some crackers, including the full "Coney Island Baby".

I bought this album because the Amazon review said "previously unreleased" . Unfortunately that is not true. I have this same gig on a CD called "Waiting for the man-live" on the "Plastic Soho" label which was released a year ago. Unfortunately, i have so much Lou Reed material, I did not check the gig date and track listing, so now have a duplicate album.
Apart from that, it is a great album.It has a different feel to his other live stuff as it is a lot jazzier in style, no hard guitars, and loads of saxaphone bleeding all over it. I think its cool. Get it ... Unless you already have "Waiting for the man-live". If you have neither , get this one, its a nicer picture on the sleeve. x
