Lou Reed - Acoustic Demos 1970

lou reed, acoustic, demos, 1970, velvet underground

Lou Reed, acoustic demos, Autumn/Winter 1970

These demos are reportedly from the period between his stint as frontman for Velvet Underground and the beginning of his solo career. The songs later appear on many different releases, I Can't Stand It, Walk It Talk It and Lisa Says on his self titled solo debut, I'm So Free and Goodnight Ladies on Transformer, Oh Jim on Berlin, Kill Your Sons on Sally Can't Dance, and surprisingly enough, none of them on the next chronological release, Metal Machine Music. A quick Buckley link for you? Ok then, if you insist...Jeff often played Velvet Undergrounds song All Tomorrows Parties solo.
