Lee Reed - Goodbye Summertime, Silent Lover - Bellaphon - BL 1189.
Lou Reed is the debut solo studio album by American musician Lou Reed, released in April 1972 by RCA Records, two years after he left the Velvet Underground.
First with the Velvet Underground, and then as a solo artist, he made music ranging from the wildly experimental to the perfectly straightforward. But Reed was a storyteller above all, waxing poetic about the full, frightening spectrum of human emotions years before others would dare. With their trans heroines, drug narratives, love stories, elegies, guitar jams and drone-scapes, he made LPs that could be flawed. The Velvet Underground (1969) The Velvets’ third album was another landmark, focusing on Reed’s quieter, more romantic songcraft, which was just as powerful as his most blatant provocations. Candy Says, inspired by Factory trans heroine Candy Darling, may be his most tender song ever; Pale Blue Eyes and Jesus are in the running too.
Summertime" is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as "without doubt. one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote.
