TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Lou Reed Transformer 7″ picture disc, “Walk
on the Wild Side” b/w “Coney Island Baby”

Characterized by his poetic lyrics and instantly recognizable voice, Lou Reed has become a key figure in rock music history through his work with influential psych-rockers The Velvet Underground, as well as his solo career.

Reed’s rise to rock stardom is chronicled in a new book, Transformer, to be released this month through Genesis Publications. Collaborating with photographer Mick Rock, Transformer showcases a number of Reed’s album covers, beginning with the album from which the book takes its name. It contains images both famous and never-before-seen, featuring the likes of Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie.

In celebration of the book’s release, we’re giving away a limited edition 7” with two Lou Reed classics, “Walk on The Wild Side” on side A, and “Coney Island Baby” on side B.

“I like Mick and I like what he photographs, so shooting with him was never a problem,” Reed told Genesis Publications. “All these moments would be gone forever if it wasn’t for him.”

“I’m happy our relationship has weathered the outrageous antics of the past 40 years, enabling us to come together to produce such a beautiful tome,” Rock said.

For a chance to win the limited edition 7”, leave a comment below naming your favorite photographer, rock or otherwise. Mine would be Ansel Adams.

A winner with a North American address will be chosen on Wednesday, October 30.
