On September 25, Rhino will release the Deluxe Edition of Lou Reed’s 1989 album, New York.

The 3xCD + 2xLP + DVD box set features a newly remastered version of the original album; live versions of every album track compiled from multiple performances; unreleased early versions of several album tracks; plus non-LP track “The Room,” as well as live versions of “Sweet Jane” and “Walk On The Wild Side”.

The set also includes ‘The New York Album’, a concert video that was originally released in 1990 on VHS and Laserdisc but has never been available on DVD, until now. It features Reed performing the entire New York album live in Montreal at the Theatre St Denis. The DVD concludes with an audio-only interview with Reed.
