What : Transformer - Lou Reed (1972)
When : 2013
Where : Bouc-Bel-Air, where my father lives.
With whom : My father. He has some great records, but no more record player. I asked him if I could take a few, and he said yes (even though he plans on getting a new turntable). Lou Reed passed away a few days before, and I was so happy to get this one. This is actually the first Lou Reed album I ever had, when I was 16 or so. I knew some Velvet songs, but for some time, this album was everything I needed. At that time, I thought that “you hit me with a flower" was the best line ever written.

Additional note : A few days later I was in Paris, and my friend Sophian told me that Nina Simone died in Bouc-Bel-Air. I don’t know how I missed that information. I checked, and she actually lived there for 8 years, but died in a small town next to it, Carry-le-Rouet.
