Dia G 21.02.10 (10) - Lou Reed - Coney Island Baby (1975 US)

Lou Reed
Coney Island Baby (1975)

Extract From Wikipedia

Coney Island Baby is an album by Lou Reed, released in 1975. It is also the title of a song on that album. The name presumably refers to the Excellents' 1962 doo wop song of the same name, and/or a 1924 Les Appleton barbershop music song of the same name (at least two other 1970s Reed songs ("Walk on the Wild Side", "Goodnight Ladies") have titles that allude to older songs). The album features the song "She's My Best Friend", which was originally recorded by Reed's band The Velvet Underground in 1969. The Velvet Underground version of the song was included on the 1985 compilation album VU. The 30th anniversary re-issue of Coney Island Baby includes bonus tracks featuring Reed's Velvet Underground bandmate Doug Yule.

Comentario
Un buen disco de Lou Reed, con un sonido más adulto que los anteriores (sin tener en cuenta, claro está, el marciano Metal Machine Music). 

By Largo Esquembre

Refresco por jmromerob (1PocodMusica):

Es el sexto álbum de estudio de Reed tras la ruptura de The Velvet Underground. Se publicó después del Metal Machine Music, el doble álbum donde sólo se puede escuchar una hora de intensa distorsión, como la herramienta de un dentista amplificada a máximo volumen con la que puso a prueba a sus fans. Abatido, endeudado y quizá arrepentido de la travesura, Reed grabó Coney Island Baby, ocho temas que finalizan a corazón abierto: con el rockero cantando a la gloria del amor susurrando a Rachel, el travesti que por entonces era su novia: tío, sabes que lo dejaría todo por ti.
