Lou Reed "Transformer" reissue?

I just stumbled upon news that Lou Reed's Transformer is going to be reissued on October 22nd, with bonus tracks. Any clue as to what's going to be on it?

This is one of my all time favorite albums, so I'm sure I'll end up buying it anyway. The original disc cost me $5 (a steal), so I wouldn't be out much buying it again.

Also, any news on when his POEtry project is going to be released on disc?

Two vintage Lou Reed albums will be rereleased this fall by BMG Heritage.

The 1978 live album Take No Prisoners receives its first CD release in the U.S. on September 24, its two discs capturing Reed's May 1978 live performance at the Bottom Line in New York City. Featuring new liner notes by Rolling Stone magazine's David Fricke.

On October 22, Reed's 1972 album Transformer will be rereleased, also sporting new liner notes (in this case, by Michael Hill) and an array of unreleased bonus tracks, including acoustic demo versions of Perfect Day and Hangin' 'Round.

BMG Heritage, which has previously rereleased Reed's Rock And Roll Heart, Metal Machine Music, and The Bells, plans a 2003 issue for 1976's Coney Island Baby and 1978's Street Hassle, both with improved sound and bonus tracks.

I've got to decide whether to get the re-release or the previous one. Can anybody comment on the quality of the audio, the liner notes and the bonus tracks, and, if possible, compare it to the previously released edition?
