"The record re-issue is part of a collaboration between Peter Hale, manager of the Ginsberg estate and Nina Kossoff, of Esther Creative Group...Ginsberg fans weren’t that interested in paying for an electronic download, when there were plenty of free or pirated recordings out there. Kossoff explained the same phenomenon applies to the contemporary music scene. When 'paying for music' means listening to ad-enabled Spotify and Pandora, artists have to find profits elsewhere: concert sales, t-shirts, posters and books. So what, then, could be done for Allen in the digital age? Ironically, the answer was to return to the era of physical media, from whence Ginsberg came. She and Hale have re-released First Blues on vinyl –faithful to the original, right down to the newspaper insert and the typos on the packaging. Anyone who buys one of these limited-edition records also gets a free link to download the tracks digitally. And it appears to have worked. They sold out of records before the Housing Works event even started." (February 2013)
"AltPress regular AW had the opportunity to tour with Reed in the summer of 2012, as she once recounted to interviewer Annie Zaleski: “Lou Reed has a radio show every Sunday night on Sirius XM. My friend Nina Kossoff was working at ECG, the company that manages him, and was helping me a bit with promotion on the side. At the time it was her job to gather as much new music as she could every week and send it to him to potentially play on the show. He ended up playing a bunch of really old b-sides of mine and then coming out to see me play in Brooklyn. The next thing I knew I got an email from Nina about doing some dates with him in Europe.
