Transformer - Lou Reed (Review)
Show Notes

We're talking about Lou Reed's 1972 glam rock landmark, Transformer, which makes the 2020 Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums list at #109.

This episode sees the triumphant return of Gia Mora - the actor, activist, singer, writer, etc. - who knocked our socks off when talking about James Taylor many episodes ago. Not only does she bring credibility - she's a musician! - but she also came ready with stories about Lou Reed's grumpy voicemails, his potential influence on Beck's work and more. As usual, Nathan Smith and Sonya Walton join Eamon O'Flynn as we dig into an enigmatic, complicated and exceptionally influential artist.
