Description

A comprehensive chronicle of the work of a master, Pass Thru Fire is breathtaking in its raw beauty and power to move. Collected here is over thirty years of work, spanning Lou Reed's entire career: from his early days with the Velvet Underground to the classic albums Transformer, Berlin and New York; from the elegiac Magic And Loss to his most recent release, Ecstasy. Many of his lyrics have never been written down, so this project has been a labour of love: fans transcribed the songs as well as they could; Reed took what they wrote and listened to the records over and over, and Pass Thru Fire was created.show more
