On October 7, Legacy Recordings may just ameliorate my state of want with an “all-in” Box set that will provide every Lou Reed disc during his RCA and Arista years.
The Box, The RCA & Arista Album Collection, will contain 17 CDs, all newly remastered. That includes the hard to locate Lou Reed RCA debut, as well as the infamous Metal Machine Music. For this set, there will be an 80-page book filled with photos, and plenty of written word to make the Box desirable just for the book alone. As bonus swag, there will be five 8×10 art prints, and a reproduction of a rare promotional poster
This Box will provide CDs beginning with the 1972 debut, Lou Reed, and complete with Mistrial from 1986.
