“Rock and Roll” – Detroit with Mitch Ryder

An early cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Rock and Roll” by Mitch Ryder’s post Detroit Wheels’ project with the guitars and volume cranked up.  Lou Reed famously said this version was superior to the Velvet’s version, which he confirmed by hiring the producer of this album (Bob Ezrin) for Reed’s 1973 album “Berlin” and guitarist Steve Hunter for his legendary “Rock and Roll Animal” tour.
