Lou Reed's 1976 album Rock and Roll Heart wasn't a showcase for the usual diverse aspects of his musical outpouring; it was a shower of bullets, shot at any given interested targets. Unfortunately for Reed, most of the shots missed, but we can be certain that the gun was loaded. His Boston show from October 1976 at the Orpheum Theatre drew the usual suspects with a snapshot of young punks, and included a performance of "Heroin" that differs remarkably from the more familiar versions rolled out on stage since the early days with Nico et al. and Transformer (1972). WBCN-FM's presence warranted expectations that Reed may not have wanted or respected, but his vision is rarely blurred. The familiar resolute figure took the stage with the singular demeanor he was authorized to parade, but with the quiet seduction and subdued authority that always set him apart. Echoes proudly presents the entire original WBCN-FM broadcast of Lou Reed's astonishing performance at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts, on October 29, 1976. Professionally remastered original FM recording with background liners and rare archival photos.
