A twice-signed Lou Reed management contract, entered into just before Reed entered the studio to record his breakthrough solo album Transformer. This onerous agreement assigned a percentage of Reed’s publishing catalog, including virtually every important Velvet Underground song, to new manager Fred Heller. Dated July 1, 1972, this five-page agreement between Reed and manager Fred […]
A mint, unused example of the Genesis Publications book Transformer, hand signed by Lou Reed and photographer Mick Rock. Transformer, a collaboration between Reed and Rock, was published by in October 2013 in a limited-edition of 2000 copies. There were two formats: a collector’s edition of 1650 copies, and a deluxe edition of 350. All […]

This must have been directed at the rebellious youth market, and we’re imagining it was a short-lived and unsuccessful campaign. The display measures 6″ x 12″ and has a pocket […]
A rare promotional poster for Lou Reed, circa the 1972 release of his first solo album, Lou Reed. In overall near mint condition, with some very minimal wear and a soft crease to the lower right corner. 20 3/4” x 33 5/8”
A stunning concert poster advertising a February, 1975 show by Lou Reed at the Rheinhalle in Dusseldorf, Germany (during Reed’s first German tour.) The photograph is similar to the cover of Reed’s 1974 Rock and Roll Animal album, and in our opinion this is the most attractive Lou Reed poster we’ve ever seen. It measures […]

In 1964, Reed moved to New York City and began working as an in-house songwriter for Pickwick City. “The Ostrich,” a parody of popular dance songs of the time, included lines such as […]
