This week on Classic Albums, we learn about the talented, the mysterious, and the ever so creative artist who is Lou Reed. The former Velvet Underground frontman didn’t find success in his solo career until his second album, Transformer, was released. Lou accredits much of that success to the help of his producer at the time, the one and only David Bowie. Transformer went on to be an international success and is regarded as one of the greatest albums ever recorded.
This episode illustrates the making of this landmark album through archival interviews and rarely seen footage of Lou in concert. It also features his specially recorded solo acoustic performances. Get a unique insight into the creative process behind the recording of this monumental album. Watch the network premiere of Classic Albums: Lou Reed: Transformer this Wednesday, April 11th at 9/8c on AXS TV.
