One of them is -Jesus -, a new version by Fernando Saunders with Reed himself as gest vocalist (besides being a world class jazz, rock and funk bassist that has played with Jan Hammer, Bohannon and John McLaughlin, among others, was a member of Lou Reed´s band since 1982 (when he recorded The Blue Mask album) thru 2003 when The Raven was released. The other rare collaboration presented here is the atmospheric song -The Bronx- where Lou record as a guest of master organist and Soul legend Booker T. Jones.

For the most part of the 70s, Lou Reed reigned as the king of the underground, the so-called dark poet, the underground Dylan, the man who embraced ‘glam’ as one of the many steps towards a decadent world which quite often he enjoyed himself. Lou Reed was dangerous, to listen to him was a sin, but most of all, he was a mystery, for both his black legend that was his tenure with The Velvet Underground, and for this androgynous poses on the covers of albums such as Transformer, Sally Can´t Dance or Rock and Roll Animal; for that drug-fueled rock opera that was his album titled Metal Machine Music, without a doubt, one of the most extreme records ever released.
In the 80s, a lot of alternative bands started mentioning Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground as their main influences. Due to this Lou started to enjoy a cult status that reached its peak with the release of his album New York – in 1989. New York was the record that most recent and ardent fans wanted to hear. From that moment on, Lou started to enjoy a mainstream appeal that had been elusive until then. These days, any rock fan can see Lou´s body of work and agree on the fact that is one of the richest, boldest and most creative in rock´s history; a catalog that can make you discover something new every time you listen to it.
In this collection we will pay tribute to him by travelling thru his lesser-known recordings, live concerts and also by revisiting his unforgettable songs.
