Comments:

The distinctly offbeat Angel has recorded a neat tribute to Lou Reed. Her vocals are as limited as his so it's a good match. She throws in a cover of "Louie Louie" and a segment of "Je t'aime" for fun. Her choices of covers are as odd as she seems to be. No "Heroin" or "Walk on the Wild Side"; but "Banging on my drum" and "She's my best Friend". She adds an instrumental "Femme Fatale" (which Nico sang anyway) an original song about Reed's crap haircut. Mostly loving an intriguing fare for Reed fans. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
