Reed and his band approach the respectfully quiet arrangements with precision and no small amount of enthusiasm (especially bassist Fernando Saunders), and Lou is in unusually good voice here; one of the traditional failings of his live albums has been that he doesn't always sing and play well at the same time, but here he hit his marks with ease.

Reed lou perfect night live in london. The first sign that the live acoustic set Perfect Night is going to be dodgy is the liner notes, where Reed enthuses over the "Feedbucker"-a device that wipes out feedback. This from the man who recorded "I Heard Her Call My Name. Reed walks-and-talks through 15 of his songs with the absolute confidence of a man convinced he's a great urban poet. It almost was a perfect night. Just before this show Lou Reed had found an acoustic guitar that he described as "having the sound of diamonds" and a way of amplifying it so the instrument's real sound would reach the audience.

Lou Reed Live is a live album by Lou Reed, released in 1975. It was recorded at the same concert as Rock 'n' Roll Animal ; on December 21, 1973, at Howard Stein's Academy of Music in New York. It features three songs from Transformer, one song from The Velvet Underground & Nico (Reed's former band's debut album) and two songs from Berlin.

20 years ago this month, Lou Reed closed out his stint on Sire Records with an acoustic live album documenting his performance at the 1997 Meltdown Festival in London. Since its inception in 1993, the Meltdown Festival – or simply the Meltdown, which is how most people generally refer to it – has annually invited notable individuals to serve as the curator of the festival, which provides them with the opportunity to select what artists they’d like to have perform at the proceedings  . Reed’s stripped-down performance on PERFECT NIGHT may not have floated the boat of every music critic, but those who enjoy Reed’s music but haven’t heard it before will likely enjoy it tremendously.

It includes a cover of The Velvet Underground's "I'll Be Your Mirror", originally sung by Nico. The cover photograph was taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. 01. I'll Be Your Mirror (03:20) 02. Perfect Day (03:51) 03. The Kids (04:27) 04. Vicious (05:41) 05.
