American Poet is an album of an early solo concert by Lou Reed, recorded live at the Hempstead Theatre, New York, on Boxing Day 1972 during the Transformer tour. The backing band are the Tots. It features material from the Velvet Underground's first album, The Velvet Underground & Nico, and Reed's first two 1972 solo albums, debut Lou Reed and Transformer. The version of "Berlin" is from that debut album. American Poet was released in 2001. It had previously been released as a bootleg recording.
Rolling Stone magazine voted Reed's 1989 New York album the 19th best of the 1980s. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time included two albums by Reed as a solo artist: Transformer and Berlin. It features material from that album, the Velvet Underground, and his 1972 solo debut Lou Reed. The album's cover photo is by Mick Rock, evidently from the same shoot that yielded the Transformer cover.
