Velvet Underground: 1969 Velvet Underground Live (Mercury)
Peter Silverton, Sounds, 17 February 1979
BUT LOU REED, Lous got real problems. Ever since he started out hes been trying to wheedle Jehovah into making him Keith Richard (Rock And Roll) and Hubert Selby Jr. (Street Hassle) and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weill (Waiting For My Man is merely Uptown fed through his warped vision) and Casablanca director, Michael Curtiz (Berlin). And thats only thinking about the pleasant side of his character.
