No joke, I don’t recall ever seeing a kinder, gentler, more melodic Lou Reed in concert. His interplay with bandmates is warm and at an all-time high. Even his dancing (see 7:25 mark) isn’t horrendous. Enjoy!

  1. The decadent perv is still very much in evidence even in this benign clip. What is he doing with the microphone between 0:40 and 0:50?

    Ever hear of a Potemkin village? This was a uniquely Russian concept: create an idealized, happy show village to fool foreign dignitaries and other important people into thinking that famines, wretched poverty, and brutal repression were just wrong-headed myths foisted by enemies of the state. I can’t help wondering if this tape is Lou’s village – a put-on show to convince us that everything was wonderful and hunky-dory (the Bowie reference is not an accident) in Lou-land.

    With the make-up and hair, I thought it was Leo Sayer at first. But seriously he looks so high he’s barely keeping it together.

  3. You make being a decadent perv sound like it’s a bad thing…
