This means that this specific title is now out of print and there are very few remaining is sealed condition. Since 1989's New York, Lou Reed has been a politically correct elder statesman of rock. Early on, though, he was the very essence of cutting edge, a time captured perfectly on American Poet. Recorded for a 1972 radio broadcast right after his return from England where he'd just recorded Transformer with the Ziggy Stardust crew, Lou and band deliver four tunes from that album sans the pop sheen David Bowie and Mick Ronson added. There are superb, near definitive takes from the Velvet Underground canon, a throwaway from his solo debut, and an early "Berlin." Lou actually sings here. The primitively wonderful band is as cool in its own way as the Rock 'n' Roll Animal group, and a hilarious midconcert interview (DJ: "Where's Doug Yule?" Lou: "Dead, I hope") reminds one how lovably vicious and politically incorrect the godfather of punk once was.
