5.15 and I Can't Explain seem to have been left off most circulating versions of this show as they are so sloppy ( due to Pete being drunk )

TV broadcast BBC 2 October 5 1974.

Lou Reed

A SBD tape of Lou's performance exists but we do not have a full set list . Length 40 mins , B quality

  • Lou Reed, vocals
  • Danny Weiss , guitar
  • Michael Fonfara, keyboards
  • Prakash John, bass
  • Pentti Glan, drums

    The tape of Lou's perfomance from that day contains the following songs (not the complete show), 40 minutes aprox- B sound quality:
    Intro/Sweet Jane-Vicious-Ride Sally Ride-Heroin-Sally Can't Dance-Lady Day
    The recording is for sure from the mixer, but the quality is not very good. In some photos you can see a TV camera pointing at Lou, so probably they videotaped Lou's show as well as they did with The Who, but no evidence of it exists.
    Hope this helps you
