I’ve met a woman with a thousand faces, and I want to make her my wife  Lou Reed, “Trade In”

4 Weeks in New York Music: 1973

January 1973. New York City. Lou Reed’s hitting the Billboard charts, the New York Dolls are playing “Trash,” Meredith Monk is playing Town Hall without a musical instrument, Miles Davis is going electric, and Laurie Anderson is directing her dreams.  

Author and critic Will Hermes uncovers the variety of revolutionary music in New York City, from rock to classical, salsa to hip hop, in his new book Love Goes to Buildings on Fire: Five Years in New York That Changed Music Forever. Chuck Klosterman says the book is “an almost perfect portrait of New York music culture: specific yet comprehensive, enthusiastic yet objective, and as informed as it is personal. The four-page section of what (seemingly) every interesting person in NYC was doing on the night of the ‘77 blackout could have been a book unto itself.”  (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
