Lou Reed's momentary departure into pop with the mould-breaking New Directions is naturally made with bold intentions and with dark wit intact, but ironic? No, simply pop in the hands of a master craftsman.

As well as marking Reed's fourteenth solo studio album, New Directions was also a statement of intent whilst similarly bearing the trademark parallels of transgressive wit and intelligence that accompany his historic path to solo artist. The album was a potent mix of anxious pop that found little room for the distorted, exotic mongo that guitarist Robert Quine honed in previous works with Reed.

Accompanied by Fernando Saunders on bass, Peter Wood on keyboards and the return of drummer Fred Maher, Reed's perverse new structure in steroid sound was taken on the road including a midday show at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio Klondike proudly celebrates the posthumous performing career of the late Lou Reed with the entire WMMS-FM broadcast from his 'Coffee-Break' performance at the Agora Ballroom on 3rd October 1984.

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