The article underscores the sound engineering of Lou Reed's single "Walk on the Wild Side." It states that Karen Friedman, Dari Lalou and Casey Sunge provided the background vocals for the single. The song also contains the haunting bassline of bassist Herbie Flowers. Moreover, the last bit of the song is the saxophone solo performed by Ronnie Ross who plays the song until it fades. The song's mix is hardly radical wherein the electric and acoustic guitars are split left and right.
