A newly remastered deluxe edition of Lou Reed’s “New York” will include 26 previously unreleased recordings.  The 1989 album will be given its first remastering in a massive deluxe edition by Rhino Records, out September 25th.

Originally released in 1989, New York marked the 15th album of Reed’s solo career. Hailed by critics and fans alike, the LP would go down as one of the rocker’s strongest efforts, earning Reed his first Grammy nomination. Notable tracks from the LP include “Busload of Faith” and the modern rock chart-topper “Dirty Blvd.”

The new expanded reissue of New York will include a remastered version of the original album on CD and vinyl, along with 26 previously unreleased studio and live recordings culled from Reed’s archives. These include demo versions and alternate mixes of many of New York’s songs. Bonus material includes live renditions of the Velvet Underground classic “Sweet Jane” and “Walk on the Wild Side,” Reed’s hit single from 1972’s Transformer. The first CD makes up the remastered album, the second CD consists of live versions and the final disc contains unreleased early versions of the album’s tracks.

A concert film, The New York Album, will also be included in the set. The recording, which captures Reed performing the entire LP live in Montreal at the Theatre St. Denis, was previously released in 1990 on VHS and laserdisc. The long out-of-print video makes its DVD debut here; it’s also being made available on streaming services.

A hardcover book accompanies the New York: Deluxe Edition set. It features new liner notes written by David Fricke, along with essays from archivist Don Fleming. Reed’s widow, Laurie Anderson, and recently deceased music producer Hal Willner also contributed to the book’s publication.

The New York: Deluxe Edition comes out September. 25th. It’s available for pre-order now.

Heartbreaker - Deluxe Box Edition (4LP+DVD) (Vinyl LP)

A track listing and release date for the deluxe reissue of Heartbreaker have finally started showing up online. Last April, Pax-Am released a 7″ single featuring an alternate take of “Come Pick Me Up” backed with an early version of “Don’t Fail Me Now” called “When the Rope Gets Tight”. The single was meant to be a precursor for this deluxe version that was slated to come out late last year. It never came out and I was a little worried, but not anymore. This appears to be more than worth the wait!. I saw Ethan Johns possibily nearly a year and half ago and he said they were working on a deluxe version.
