Lou Reed's latest collection, Rock and Roll Heart wasn't a showcase for the usual diverse aspects of Lou Reed's musical outpouring, moreover, it was a shower of bullets, shot at any given interested targets.

Unfortunately for Reed, most of the shots missed, but we can be certain that the gun was loaded, what with, is up for countless debate. His Boston show from October 1976 at the Orpheum Theater drew the usual suspects with a snapshot of young punks and nearly crossed the line at missing out a performance of Heroin which when played, differed remarkably from the more familiar versions rolled out on stage since the early days with Nico et al and Transformer.

WBCN-FM's presence warranted expectation that maybe Reed didn't necessarily want or respect, but Reed's vision is rarely blurred. The familiar resolute figure took the stage with the singular demeanour he was authorised to parade, but with the quiet seduction and subdued authority that always set him apart.

Echoes proudly presents the entire original WBCN-FM broadcast of Lou Reed's astonishing performance at the Orpheum Theater, Boston, Massachusetts on 29th October 1976.

Professionally re-mastered original FM recording with background liners and rare archival photos.
