I purchased this album,shortly after it,s release, after seeing a television commercial featuring video of the concert.After hearing "Sweet Jane" in my room ,I think I was transcended to another place and time.Please don,t laugh,I can't make this stuff up! If you like terrific guitar playing and a striking performance by a visionary frontman such as Mr. Lou Reed,this is a stellar collection of His more proactive material with top level backing musicians.
