Loved hearing about Patti Smith. There was a reissue of “Horses” that included a live recording from the 30th anniversary concert with the surviving band from that album, plus Tom Verlaine and Flea, from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They played it in the album order, with the bonus single of “My Generation”.
Also, Tug pointed out that she was best known for covers and played “Privilege (Set Me Free)”, which was itself a cover of a song from the movie, Privilege by Paul Jones, the former singer of Manfred Mann’s band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6otmvjZG_Vc
