Recorded at The Academy of Music, New York City, December 21, 1973 and originally released in 1974.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Animal was therefore built up to sell and this fact really upset Reed who one year later would decide to publish the ear-bleeding Metal Machine Music, a 60-minute-long record of pure noise, released on purpose to annoy his label. Despite being forged in this unhappy background, its musical content is pure energy turned into rock’n’roll, performed by a real rock’n’roll animal. Lou Reed’s vocals are not that powerful but still remain very expressive.
Berlin follows Jim and Caroline, two drug addicts living together in the divided city of Berlin (which Lou Reed, notably, had never visited before the album’s recording).
Rock & Roll Animal came out in 1973, after his most controversial album to date, Berlin (also 1973). His fans awaited it anxiously: most of them hadn’t been happy with the direction he’d taken in this previous album. But this new album was recorded live, using a killer band with twin guitars, keyboards, bass and drums. It signaled a return to Reed’s rock and roll roots. Listening now, it’s a mixed bag.
Rock 'n' Roll Animal" was my introduction to Reed, too, and I worked backward to the Velvet Underground and followed Reed forward in his messy journey from this live album. I look upon "Rock 'n' Roll Animal" today with affection. I enjoyed listening to it again for this series.
