This early Lou Reed fan publication is a stream of consciousness screed/meditation on Reed’s first solo record. Written by Brian Cullman and Robot Hull–who both would go on to have distinguished careers as rock critics–while students at Brown, the publication captures the New Journalism style popular with the burgeoning American rock press. The pamphlet is both a revealing secondary document on Reed’s transition to a solo career and primary document of early rock criticism and Reed fan culture.
