{#Arrowd} A regrettable look. (The music, of course, rocks.)

Little Help..... Who is the MONSTER lineup in the astonishing recording??

(The applause bursts when Lou appears on stage.... Haven't you ever been to a live show?!!)

 

The musicians were:
Pentti Glan (drums),  Prakash John (bass), Ray Colcord (keyboards), and Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter on guitars.
Have only seen Lou live on video, and many of the performances that were the start of the show, include a build-up
that doesn't include Mr. Reed, who eventually appears to roaring applause.
The Epic cut on this Album is 'Heroin.'

Awesome!  Were you at the B.L. during the dates of May 17-21, 1978 when "Take No Prisoners" was recorded?  According to Wiki, Springsteen showed for at least one of 'em:

CD One:

"Sweet Jane" – 10:44"I Wanna Be Black" – 6:27"Satellite of Love" – 7:06"Pale Blue Eyes" – 7:36"Berlin" – 6:13"I'm Waiting for the Man" – 13:59

CD Two:

"Coney Island Baby" – 8:37"Street Hassle" – 13:15"Walk on the Wild Side" – 16:54"Leave Me Alone" – 7:29

 
I went one of those nights - I'll have to see if I still have the ticket stub to see which night it was.  I think the version of "Sweet Jane" from "Take No Prisoners" (where he goes off on rants about Randy Newman and Barbra Streisand) was recorded the night we were there.  I didn't see Bruce Springsteen there but Martin Scorcese and Brian DePalma were sitting near us.  It was a night where Lou cursed out Clive Davis, who was also in the house.

Thanks for solving a mystery I've had for over 40 years.

I guess I'm more impressed you actually know some people who witnessed a Lou Reed show at Howard Stein's Academy of Music (later called The Palladium) on 12/21/73, the night they recorded "Rock 'n' Roll Animal". 

 
I had some older friends who went to that show - some of whom introduced me to the music of the lesser-known, "underground" artists in the mid-1970s.  I think my older sister went as well. I didn't see Lou Reed until about 1977 or '78, at The Bottom Line; I had to use an older friend's driver's license (pre-photo days fortunately) to get in.  I saw a lot of shows at The Palladium, but none when it was called "The Academy".

Yes, as far as I had been told by a few different people who were at that show: he was off-stage throughout that intro and the increase in applause did occur when he walked out onto the stage.

Perhaps they were applauding Lou appearing on stage?
If the applause was dubbed in don't you think they would have put it in at the more obvious spot?
Just speculating, of course.

Is it wrong to be slightly irked all these years later that the applause is obviously dubbed in?  

Why would the entire audience all start clapping at least 10 seconds AFTER the famous riff kicks in at 3:20?  It couldn't have colectively taken everyone in attendence that long to figure it out which song was playing.

THEY'RE BOTH STILL WITH US, SO YOU COULD CONCEIVABLY CATCH THEM IN THE SAME CONCERT.

BUT WHO WOULD YOU PREFER OPEN?

The numbers don't go to 11, so you must really be splitting some mighty fine hairs.

For my part, the 2 versions are not comparable.
