Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Containing a body of work that spans more than three decades, Pass Thru Fire is a stunning collection of the lyrics of an American original. Through his many incarnations-from proto punk to glam rocker to elder statesman of the avant garde-Lou Reeds work has maintained an undeniable vividness and raw beauty, fueled by precise character studies and rendered with an admirable shot of moral ambiguity. Beginning with his formative days in the Velvet Underground and continuing through his remarkable solo career-albums like Transformer, Berlin, New York, Magic and Loss, and Ecstasy-Pass Thru Fire is crucial to an appreciation of Lou Reed, not only as a consummate underground musician, but as one of the truly significant poets of our time.

Synopsis:

As the songwriter who brought plainspoken realism to rock and roll (New York Times), Lou Reed has long been considered a keen-eyed observer of the American social scene, as well as a brilliant musician. Reed studied with the poet Delmore Schwartz, and this fact, along with Reed's native incisiveness, makes it clear why Reed's lyrics have such resonance and power.

This definitive collection includes lyrics to Lou's earliest work and to his most recent recording. Its brilliantly innovative interior design has brought it praise and awards. The new volume showcases a master's work in all its searing beauty.

Synopsis:

The complete lyrics of Lou Reed, founder of the Velvet Underground and among the most acclaimed lyricists of all time
