Lou Reed has gone back to the original multi-tracks and has digitally re-mastered his 1975 classic album "Metal Machine Music." This is the one and only official re-mastered edition of Metal Machine Music, re-issued, supervised and approved by Lou Reed himself. The re-mastered edition is released domestically in the UK on May 10th and will be distributed by Cargo.

The album will be released on Reed's very own Sister Ray label in three formats double gatefold vinyl (in quadraphonic sound), Audio DVD and Blu-ray. All formats are available for pre-order now from Cargo.co.uk, Amazon.co.uk, Play.com and HMV.com.

This timely release dovetails the UK tour dates for Lou Reed's Metal Machine Trio a new band that Lou has put together which performs music that is loosely based on, and inspired by Metal Machine Music.

180 Gram Vinyl: 180 gram and double gatefold vinyl edition contains a stereo reproduction of the original quadraphonic master, playable on home theatre systems. The programme ends in a locked groove, just like the original.

Audio DVD: The audio DVD contains both discrete 4-channel and stereo audio reproductions of the original quadraphonic master, playable on home theatre systems. Includes the looped lock groove audio at the end as on the original vinyl release. The disc is audio video only and is formatted for all regions.

Blu-ray: The Blu-ray edition contains both discrete 4-channel and stereo audio reproductions of the original quadraphonic master, playable on home theatre systems. Includes the looped locked groove audio at the end as on the original vinyl release. Formatted for all regions.

The original. The one that started it all. Noise Rock - Industrial Rock. Underground for years, it survived on the power of an idea. No key, no vocals, no set rhythm. Hhhmmmmm feedback forever. Supervised by Lou Reed and faithfully re-mastered to the last squeal.

Says Reed, "The out of print "Quad" has been replicated for all formats including a perfect vinyl version playable on your stereo turntable with the original rear sections moved to the centre of the front left/right speakers. It's worth getting a turntable to hear this. I myself bought a Linn to calibrate this great sound and am playing it through Wilson Watts and Puppies. Hear it as we did on Scott Hull's Duntechs."

"We worked from digital transfers (95k 24bit) made from the original analogue masters. The original label supplied us with these files and photo copies of the analogue reels INCLUDING copies of Bob Ludwig's original mastering notes."

An act of love for an act of sound.
