This is a good starting point for anyone wishing to investigate Lou Reed's career. It includes his early hit Walk On The Wild Side plus mesmerizing versions of Sweet Jane and White Light/White Heat and the tracks come from albums as diverse as Berlin, Transformer, Sally Can't Dance and Coney Island Baby. It's a great selection of songs, my favourites being Satellite Of Love (why wasn't this one a huge hit single?), the campy New York Telephone Conversation and the aforementioned. Melodic, acidic and original, this is the very best of early Lou Reed.
