Later, Smith talks with Lou Reed in March 1969, shortly after his band the Velvet Underground had released their third album. Reed discusses the early days of the Velvet Underground, the band's trouble getting radio airplay, the songs and themes of the third LP, the downsides of drugs, and the band's relationship with Andy Warhol.
