Lou Reed: il box


Sarà pubblicato il 7 ottobre via Legacy Recordings il monolitico box set ‘Lou Reed – The RCA & Arista Album Collection’ che celebra l’indimenticato artista americano. Il cofanetto è composto da 17 CD – 16 studio album + 1 live che raccoglie materiale dal 1972 al 1986 – praticamente dopo la fine dei Velvet Underground. Ogni disco è stato rimasterizzato sotto la supervisione del produttore Hal Willner nel giugno e luglio 2013 qualche mese prima della scomparsa dell’artista. Laurie Anderson scrive: “Our first date was a trip to the AES (Audio Engineering Society) convention. As wireheads Lou and I loved beautiful recordings and spent years making our studios, instruments and gear the best they could possibly be. Lou put his heart into remastering these records. They are not smoothed out. Sometimes remastering revealed their details and roughness in the most exciting ways. They leap out at you with their original energy”.
