Patti Tonite

"They called her the queen of Sheba, laid her down in Ethiopia..." As I'm going to see living legend Patti Smith play this evening, here's some rare stuff from the bootleg vaults. Three exciting tracks from Teenage Perversity & Ships In The Night, recorded live at the Roxy in Los Angeles in 1976. Pay special attention to her impressive take on Birdland, complete with near-breathless spoken intro. "If we rip apart the ozone, there's gotta be another zone under it..."

Such an amazing artist! I just recently became a huge fan of her's, and am excited to hear that she's coming out with an 18-track album that is a collection of songs spanning her entire career :) This will be a great way to catch up on all of her hits! Definitely look out for "Outside Society" on August 23rd!!
