LOU REED THE Blue Mask French Release 12" LP VINYL ALBUM

Album Description: "The Blue Mask" is the eleventh studio album by singer-songwriter Lou Reed. It was the first album released after Reed left Arista Records and returned to RCA. It returns to the stripped-down sound of his previous group, the Velvet Underground, with only guitars, bass and drums. It also follows the Velvet Underground stylistically by counterpointing and transposing jarring feedback-driven rock with tough and tender ballads, melodic distortion of a magnitude not heard since the "Sister Ray" days. Reed and Robert Quine's guitars were mixed separately in the right and left stereo channels respectively.
