Stream the Two Lou Reed Live Albums Being Reissued On Vinyl For Record Store Day

Lou Reed’s 2004 live album Animal Serenade will be available for the first time on vinyl April 21st for Record Store Day. Sire Records will press 7500 copies as a RSD Exclusive Release 3 LP set, 2500 of which will be available in the US. Recorded live at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre during a 2003 show in support of Reed’s album The Raven, the song selection spans from Velvet Underground classics (“Sunday Morning,” “Heroin”) through signature solo songs from the ’70s (“How Do You Think It Feels”), ’80s (“Dirty Blvd”) and beyond. Reed is backed by a drummer-less band including Mike Rathke (guitar/synth, bassist), Jane Scarpantoni (cello), and vocalists Fernando Saunders and Anohni, from Antony and the Johnsons. In addition to singing backing throughout, Anohni takes the lead on “Set The Twilight Reeling” and “Candy Says.”

A limited edition picture disc featuring select tracks from Lou Reed and Kris Kristofferson’s February 2, 1994 set for “In Their Own Words with Vin Scelsa” at New York’s Bottom Line will also be released Record Store Day. 1000 copies of the 12″ LP will be pressed by The Bottom Line Records for a RSD Limited Run.
