CD 2 starts with two collaborations that only die-hard fans may know about. 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. From there we move to eight The Velvet Underground tracks, recorded live in 1969, and among them we find true classics such as – I´m Waiting For The Man and Pale Blue Eyes -, but also songs that were never recorded in studio like – Sweet Bonnie Brown .

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.
