More than two decades later, Your Favorite Music undergoes another rebirth, with the welcome addition of four acoustic latter-day Barzelay performances from his crowdfunded covers project. A trio of Velvet Underground songs are transformed into folk ballads. Jackson Browne's "These Days," once covered by Velvets vocalist and Browne paramour Nico, was part of the VU universe too.
"My voice and Lou Reed's voice seem to fit together nicely," says Barzelay, who makes all four tunes feel like they're of a piece. "It feels great," says Barzelay of the expanded reissue treatment, "I'm deeply grateful. If more people that didn't know Clem Snide find their way into it, I think that'd be the best thing for sure." In other words, here's your chance for Your Favorite Music to become your favorite music.
