Lou Reed

Rock & Roll Animal



LP Black $28
  • Pressed on black vinyl
  • Originally released in 1974
  • Newly remastered


Reissued on vinyl, this digitally remastered version of the 1974 release presents "Rock n Roll Animal," a live album by Lou Reed under RCA Records. Originally comprising five tracks, with four drawn from Velvet Underground's repertoire, the album showcases the talents of Pentti Glan on drums, Prakash John on bass, Ray Colcord on keyboards, and Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter on guitars. Wagner and Hunter would later coalesce to form the core of the second Alice Cooper band, debuting on "Welcome to My Nightmare," which also features Glan and John. Recorded live on December 21, 1973, at Howard Stein's Academy of Music in New York City, this album quietly gained momentum, eventually reaching #45 on the Billboard album chart and securing Reed's first RIAA gold certification in 1978 after a remarkable twenty-eight weeks on the charts.
