Lou Reed: Berlin (RCA APL1-0207)

Wayne Robins, Zoo World, 3 January 1974

HEARD ANY good jokes lately? Here's one from Lou Reed. "She put her fist through the window pane/It was such a funny thing." That's from 'Caroline Says, II'. Or here's another, from 'The Bed': "And this is where she cut her wrists."

Quite a kibbitzer, that Lou Reed.
