Welcome to this week's Friday On The Turntable feature! For those of you that follow my blog on Facebook, you'll recall that each Friday I post a featured record that I'm currently enjoying. To enhance the experience, I've been filming short videos - discussing a brief history of the record, my favorite tracks and what it means to me. The video is embedded below - and don't forget to subscribe to my youtube channel here.
On Sunday, October 27th, the world lost a legend - Lou Reed. As a special tribute to his influence on me - as a songwriter and musician - I am showing several items from my Lou Reed / Velvet Underground vinyl/CD collection, as well as a story on meeting the man himself. Be sure to scroll down for the video - and a link to purchase some of the items shown in this episode. At the bottom of the page is a 30-song Spotify playlist, outlining some of my favorite Reed / VU tracks. Please enjoy. :)
