Transformer is the second solo studio album by American recording artist Lou Reed. The album is considered an influential landmark of the glam rock genre, anchored by Reed's most successful single, "Walk on the Wild Side", which touched on controversial topics of sexual orientation and drugs. Produced by David Bowie and arranged by Mick Ronson, the album was released in November 1972 by RCA Records.

At the time, however, the music clashed with the innocent, "peace and love" paradigm rock fans had come to embrace. The Velvet Underground and Nico sold poorly. Thirty-seven years later, Lou Reed would remark in an interview, "One of my rules is: Never listen to your old stuff.
Transformer is considered to be one of the best albums of the 1970s. This documentary examines it with Lou Reed and engineer Ken Scott talking about Perfect Day and Vicious among others; Herbie Flowers shows how the base line on Walk on the Wild Side was recorded and Dave Stewart talks of Lou's influence on him.
His first solo album, Lou Reed, was a bit of a disappointment in light of his work with the Velvets. Now, on Transformer, Bowie is Reed’s producer. David Bowie’s show biz pansexuality has been more than a minor catalyst in Lou Reed’s emergence from the closet here.
