I've got a copy of this without 'Stereo' on the labels but it's in a non laminated sleeve. Has "Print Code HH" on the rear sleeve too, top right next to cat number. Anyway else come across this variation?

Seems common place that the production value lacks. This is musically excellent but just doesn't sound very good.

Label would be better represented as simply: RCA Victor

Have to say it, this is probably one of my least favorite Reed albums, despite Reed's determination to make a hit solo record. With the majority of the songs being re-done VU demos, I had expected something still pretty aggressive and exciting... unfortunately, I still prefer the demo pieces, while the rest of the album is more of a mish-mash of great, but oddly produced material.

The album starts out strongly enough with the muscular guitar-driven I Can't Stand It, and I doubt there's a single Reed fan out there who would dismiss the song as a favorite. For me, the album does kick back up until I Love You, which I have always enjoyed, then Wild Child, another obvious Reed staple. Again, Ocean is another saviour from the mundane and a great closer.

All in all I don't hate the other songs, but, as many others have mentioned, along with Reed himself, it's the weakness of the production that brings the album down.

Personally though, I don't think Bowie's production on Transformer is the best either (even if I'm a big fan of his, just WAY too many backing vocals), but that's a different story, err, review.
