"'Metal Machine Music had an unusually high number of returns and was taken off the market in three weeks,' Reed writes in the new liner notes. 'I had no money and no guitars. The roadies had taken them when they hadn't been paid. I was in debt to everyone including the musicians union. RCA put me up in a hotel while the future fell, to be decided.'"
Here are the extras:
- the B-side "Nowhere at All"
- "Downtown Dirt"
- "Leave Me Alone"
- Previously unreleased versions of "Crazy Feeling," "She's My Best Friend" and "Coney Island Baby" recorded with Doug Yule in January 1975.
