  1. Hey, I have a question. In Lou's best album (Street Hassle of course ! ;) ) , some tracks were recorded live. Do you have the bootlegs of those actual tracks ? Or do you know where some of those songs are in wich bootleg ?

    Thanks !

    1. Hi Robbe
      Sorry I do not have these records.
      despite everything, a little history on this disc.

      Note Wikipedia:
      The studio tracks on Street Hassle were recorded in New York City, while the live recordings were made in Munich, Wiesbaden and Ludwigshafen, West Germany. Unlike most live albums, the audience is completely muted from the mix during the concert recordings.
      Bruce Springsteen contributed spoken vocals during the "Slip Away" section of "Street Hassle", alluding to his own Born to Run album in the final line. At the time, the singer was enduring a three-year forced hiatus from releasing any of his own work due to legal disputes with his former manager, although he was in the process of writing and recording music for his forthcoming album Darkness on the Edge of Town, to be released in June 1978. Springsteen was not credited for his performance in the liner notes to Street Hassle, possibly due to his ongoing legal battles.
      Binaural recording
      The recording of Street Hassle was notable in that Reed and his co-producer chose to employ an experimental microphone placement technique called binaural recording. In binaural recording, two microphones are placed in the studio in an attempt to mimic the stereo sound of actually being in the room with the performers/instruments. In the case of the recording sessions and concerts that composed Street Hassle, engineers used a mannequin head with a microphone implanted in each ear. Binaural recordings are generally only effective when the user listens to the album through headphones, and do not generally translate correctly through stereo speakers.
      Dummy head being used for binaural recording, similar to the setup used for Street Hassle
      Reed's particular binaural recording system was developed by Manfred Schunke of the German company Delta Acoustics; Schunke is credited as an engineer on Street Hassle. Lou Reed would continue to use the binaural recording style on two more releases: the 1978 concert album Live: Take No Prisoners and the 1979 studio album The Bells.

      Note The Rock And Roll Animal Web Page:
      Did these above 3 shows really happen?. Or were the St Hassle tapes made during the 04-77 tour dates? If the 4/77 Ludwigshaven songs were on "Street Hassle", then these shows probably didn't happen

    2. Ok thanks for your information ! I saw you had the original Take No Prisoner show so I thought maybe you have the Street Hassle shows :). Btw I have a Youtube account called 'Rock & Roll Heart' , where I upload some of your bootlegs that aren't on youtube. Do you mind me using your bootlegs ?

      And I was wondering where did you find all of these ? :D

      Have a nice day !

    3. Hi Robbe,
      I know 'Rock & Roll Heart' and I'm glad to have you so.
      I started looking for bootlegs of Lou in 70s later with the internet I could find what passionate, we now touch me via my blog for me or proposed records the names of those who were in possession cassettes or tapes (very often they do not want to give ...)
      I received a message yesterday from someone who did movies and rare concerts of Lou Reed and The Velvet undergrond, I wait his list.
      To be continued ...
