Four Pre-Velvet-Underground Songs Featuring Lou Reed

Credit where credit is due:  I found these at http://dangerousminds.net/comments/primitive_lou_reeds_pre_velvet_underground_recordings. They used to be highly-sought-after, rare recordings, but, well, the Internet has put a stop to that. Lou Reed and friends recorded them in 1964.

“You’re Driving Me Insane,” by The Roughnecks:

“The Ostrich,” by The Primitives: 

My personal favorite of these four, “Sneaky Pete,” also by The Primitives: 

“Cycle Annie,” by The Beachnuts: 

Lou Reed . . . you are missed. Your music, however, lives on.
