Lou Reed: Coney Island Baby (RCA APL1-0915-B)

Kim Fowley, Phonograph Record, March 1976

LOU REED is back. Coney Island Baby is the new wimp non-rock of the New Year. 'Crazy Feeling' is George Harrison Meets Buddy Holly's 'Everyday'. Almost MOR, it will bring Lou back into the good graces of those he let down by the abruptness of Metal Machine Music.
