Lou Reed Talking About His First Solo Album
Geoffrey Cannon, unpublished, July 1972
Author's note, 2018. This was my scoop. New York, June 1972. Lou discusses all the tracks, one by one, in detail and with diversions, on Lou Reed, his first solo album, released in April that year. He explains clearly and explicitly that his lyrics were based on observation of what happens – in his case then, scuffling in New York City in association with Andy Warhol's world.
