Richard and Lisa Robinson's Apartment
New York, NY

This recording consists of Lou Reed and Richard Robinson playing an electric guitar at the Robinsons' apartment. Sometimes it's Lou playing; sometimes it's Richard. In regards to the song titles listed below, sometimes complete versions of songs are played; at other times there are just fragments. There are also numerous, often simultaneous conversations going on between Lou, Richard, Lisa Robinson, and the writer Dave Marsh. Some of the discussions include Lou talking about putting the fourth chord into "Sweet Jane," a brief statement that Lou's first album was going to be produced by John Cale and released on Atlantic, some talk about the fact that David Bowie wanted to work with Lou, and Andre Segovia's statement that "The electric guitar is an abomination."
