Walk On The Wild Side: The Best Of Lou Reed
by Lou Reed
Released: Jan 1977
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
A bizarre collection of Reed's 1970s RCA material that actually does a better job of showing what a diverse artist he was than some theoretically superior collections. The title track remains pop perfection, "Sweet Jane" is arena rock at its best, and "Coney Island Baby" could turn the entire cast of The Sopranos into blubbering housewives.
