Lou Reed / Remastered RCA & Arista box being issued as 6LP vinyl set

lou-reed_vinyl

Many of us are looking forward to the release of the 17CD Lou Reed RCA & Arista Album Collection box set which is due next month, but what wasn’t mentioned when this was announced is that there will also be a vinyl box set edition issued in November…

The RCA & Arista Vinyl Collection, Vol 1 is a six-LP set, which features the newly remastered audio (created under Reed’s supervision, shortly before his death) of the following albums: Transformer (1972); Berlin (1973); Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal (1974); Coney Island Baby (1976); Street Hassle (1978) and The Blue Mask from 1982.

These are apparently 150g pressings and the package comes with a 30-page book. “Vol 1″ clearly suggests that another Lou Reed vinyl box may be delivered in the future.

The RCA & Arista Vinyl Collection, Vol 1 will be released on 18 November 2016.

  1. Andres says:

    Its curious that they include arguably his most famous records in volume 1. Dont know how much interest will be for volume 2 and 3.

  2. Brian says:

    No Metal Machine Music?

  3. HalloweenJack says:

    I don’t think this will sell at all. It’s ridiculous that the vinyl collection is not in chronological order. Ideally, this set should have included his entire ’70’s output and packaged like Bowie’s “Five Years” set.

    … now that I would buy without any hesitation.

  4. PeterPiazza says:

    What! No Metal Machine Music? I’m not buying, then.

  5. MFG says:

    Why not issue all of the RCA/Arista albums on vinyl from the start? Seems strange to include some and not others, based on what, perceived popularity? I’m sure even Metal Machine Music has its die-hard fans waiting for a 2-LP release.

  6. Josh says:

    “which features the newly remastered audio (created under Reed’s supervision, shortly before his death)”

    Which means in clear they used the dreadful Vlad Meller remasters available since last year on various online HD music retailers (HDTracks, Qobuz…). Be prepared…

  7. Graham Piazza says:

    Yes, I agree with Brian and Peter. The omission of Metal Music Machine is a deal breaker.
    No marbles or scarf either.

    LOL

  8. Brice says:

    And where is his first solo album on RCA (1972) ??????

  9. mitchell feldstein says:

    clearly the most “popular” of his records were included in the vinyl box.
    i have all the stuff on vinyl.bought the CD box as don’t have several on CD and was curious about the remastering.i for one hope it is new remastering that lou did in fact have an ear in doing.i have never heard the dreadful remastering mentioned in a post above.
    i did recently buy the cd’s of “the blue mask” supervised by paul williams and ‘legendary hearts” an ikon/classic.and neither sound “right” one and i can’t remember which also sounds like i think what a needle drop is.it seems like you can hear vinyl in the beginning.

    even though a “set the twilight reeling” and “ecstasy” were not analogue recording i would still like to have them in vinyl.
