Product Description & Reviews
Between Thought & Expression It's hard to fault this three-CD collection, since Reed himself was so heavily involved with the project. Yet it presents the same problem posed by "authorized" biographies. Coming after the success of New York, this anthology offers the more literary, politically correct side of Uncle Lou, neglecting the "fuckin' faggot junkie" (his self-characterization, from Street Hassle's "Gimme Good Times"--not included here) image he cultivated so effectively early in his immediate post-Velvet Underground years. Yes, he's an amazing rock poet, but he was also a rock & roll animal. There are just too many exclusions here for this to be "definitive." It's not for novices, but completists will have to own this 45-track collection simply for the terrific rarities, including the unreleased "Downtown Dirt," "Nowhere At All" (originally a B-side), a 1978 live "Heroin" featuring jazz great Don Cherry, "Little Sister" (from the Get Crazy soundtrack), and the great, unreleased "America (Star Spangled Banner)." --Bill Holdship
