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


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.
