There is no recording of Lou Reed singing Bob Dylan’s “Baby, Let Me Follow You Down” in 1963.
And technically that is still true! But there is a tape of him doing an instrumental version with guitar and harmonica — either on purpose or because he got lost in the song and the tape cut off before he could start singing. We’ll never know.
Wait, scratch that — we might know tomorrow. Indeed do many things come to pass.
Good find. Wish it was longer.
Lou could fingerpick? Damn.
