An American master and true rock & roller, Lou Reed transformed popular art, music and culture through a body of work that continues to affect the way fans hear and see the world. Reed, who cut his first single as a teenager in the late 1950s, began his professional career working as a New York in-house assembly line songwriter in the early 1960s while developing his pure artistic vision as frontman for the Velvet Underground.
After leaving the VU in 1970, Lou launched his unparalleled solo career, beginning with an extended run (1972-1986) at RCA Records and Arista Records that's included a string of signature songs – "Perfect Day," "Walk On The Wild Side," "Satellite of Love," "I Love You, Suzanne" – as well as albums iconic and iconoclastic.
Lou Reed - The RCA & Arista Vinyl Collection, Vol. 1 presents fully restored vinyl editions of Transformer (1972), Berlin (1973), Rock n Roll Animal (1974), Coney Island Baby (1975), Street Hassle (1978) and The Blue Mask (1982).
