Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. 8 track tape of Berlin by Lou Reed.

About this copy: This copy of Berlin is a sealed 8 track tape of Reed’s 1973 LP on the RCA label and we believe it to be an original issue.

The wrap is fully intact with no rips or tears.  The tape is presumably new and unplayed.

Background: Released in 1973, Berlin was Lou Reed’s third solo album.

Allmusic.com gave Berlin a 3 1/2 star review:
Transformer and “Walk on the Wild Side” were both major hits in 1972, to the surprise of both Lou Reed and the music industry, and with Reed suddenly a hot commodity, he used his newly won clout to make the most ambitious album of his career, Berlin. Berlin was the musical equivalent of a drug-addled kid set loose in a candy store; the album’s songs, which form a loose story line about a doomed romance between two chemically fueled bohemians, were fleshed out with a huge, boomy production (Bob Ezrin at his most grandiose) and arrangements overloaded with guitars, keyboards, horns, strings, and any other kitchen sink that was handy (the session band included Jack Bruce, Steve Winwood, Aynsley Dunbar, and Tony Levin). …It’s hard not to be impressed by Berlin, given the sheer scope of the project, but while it earns an A for effort, the actual execution merits more of a B-.
