|LOU REED LIVE AT THE ROXY WITH DON CHERRY: LIVE AT THE ROXY THEATRE IN LOS ANGELES - DECEMBER 1ST, 1976 Limited Transparent Vinyl 2LP Set
• LOU REED - Live at The Roxy with Don Cherry; Live at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles - December 1st, 1976
• Lou Reed was touring in support of Rock and Roll Heart, when he rolled into L.A.’s Roxy and played a set
that was recorded for later radio broadcast.
• Reed and his road band (which included Michael Fonfara on keys and Marty Fogel on sax) sound like they’re having a fine time, and with free jazz legend Don Cherry sitting in, the band’s frequent jams give this an exploratory feel that sets it apart from some of Reed’s other live sets of the period.
• Reed himself is in a loose and playful mood (at least by his standards), occasionally goofing on the lyrics,
and reveling the opportunity to make noises with a new guitar synthesizer.
• The set does include two lesser-known tunes from Rock and Roll Heart, “You Wear It So Well” and “I Believe in Love,” and the extended improvisations will make this worth a listen for serious Lou Reed fans!!
