Who better to review a Lou Reed release than Willie Nile? With the release of RCA/Arista’s impressive collectible vinyl box set less than 48 hours away, rocker Willie Nile gives us a preview of the comprehensive collection’s contents.

“The overall package is a barnburner and a great lesson and example for aspiring musicians and artists of all kinds to see a risk taker and real artist showing how it’s done,” Nile wrote. If you haven’t seen Willie Nile live, read his review tomorrow, then check out a performance to see what this consummate performer learned from Lou Reed and made his very own. Here’s Willie playing with Bruce Springsteen, the Who and Billy Idol, and coming to a city near you.
