Coney Island Baby (Bonus Tracks)

Coney Island Baby by Lou Reed
Released: Feb 1976
Label: Rca/Legacy
Lou Reed took a deep breath, decided not to try so hard and came up with one of his all-time best records. Breezy and warm intimate love songs give way to the increasingly unsettling S&M murder tale "Kicks" and the ragged, raging VU-style rockers "Nowhere At All" and "Leave Me Alone." Even in this exalted company, the majestic, aching title track rules the day. The respectable demo of "Coney Island Baby" (one of three), shows Reed was right to bring the session cats back in for one day.
