I’ve been consumed by Lou Reed’s The Blue Mask of late and finally made time for the 1983 live document A Night With Lou Reed. The DVD finds Reed live in an intimate setting (The Bottom Line) in his native NYC, sparsely backed by guitarist Robert Quine, Fernando Saunders on bass and Fred Maher on drums — who collectively were a shot in the arm rolling through both VU and Reed classics. Lou Reed fans: If you have yet to see this, do so.
I grabbed it at Netflix, but just noticed it is available in its entirety, piecemeal, via YouTube.
