LOU REED ~ Palaterme Fiuggie 10-9-2004, 2005 original Italy press CDr, Limited Edition, N / A

2005 original made in Italy private pressing, cover & disc M-, NO scratches or marks on disc, plays excellent. Recorded live at Palaterme, Fiuggi, Italy, September 10, 2004. Sent to me from Italy by my good collector friend Gian Franco Giudici. I sent it on back to Italy to a different Gian Franco who also appreciates the late Lou Reed. I only had the pleasure of seeing Lou Reed play live once, at the Austin Music Hall in Austin, Texas, in 1996 or so, & it happend that my wife who usually went to all my concerts with me was a bit under the weather that night, and Gian Franco was visiting Austin, Texas for the SXSW Music Festival, so I left my extra ticket at the front door for Gian Franco to pick up on his way inside the Hall, I never saw him that night (it was pitch black inside!), but we both enjoyed a "solid performance" by Lou Reed & most of this same band! He played real good that night! Played both "Rock & Roll" & "Sweet Jane"!! It was incredible!

Lou Reed  (& Laurie Anderson) ~ Torino, Italy, July 10, 2002, 2002 original Italy press 2CDr, Limited Edition / Not For Sale
LOU TORINO (2).jpg

This is a collaboration concert by Lou Reed & (his future wife) Laurie Anderson which although has some good pieces, it has just "a bit too much drama" for my taste, recorded live at Lingotto, Torino, Italy, July 10, 2002. When I listen to Lou Reed, I want to ROCK, not fall asleep! But wait... Track #11 on disc 2 is a Surprise duet(!) of Lou Reed & Luciano Pavarotti with full orchestration of "Perfect Day".  Track #12 is Lou Reed doing "Walk On The Wild Side" from SAME concert (NO Luciano here, ha!), Track #14 is Lou Reed & Luciano Pavarotti doing The Beatles' "Hey Jude"! Wow, what a treat!!! Gian Franco came through in the end with this treasure! Mama mia, this is wonderful!
