Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Patti Smith Group: Patti Smith (vocals, guitar); Lenny Kaye, Ivan Kral (vocals, guitar, bass); Bruce Brody (keyboards, synthesizer); Jay Dee Daugherty (drums, percussion).
  • Additional personnel: Richard Sohl, Allen Lanier (keyboards); John Paul Fetta (bass); Andi Ostrowe (percussion).
  • Recorded at The Record Plant, New York, New York and The House Of Music, West Orange, New Jersey.
  • "Rock and roll is the only cultural asset America has given the world," declared a young Patti Smith years before she made her own records. Then she made EASTER, which made that asset a little more valuable. EASTER is an essential cultural touchstone.
  • Whereas HORSES was built on poetry and RADIO ETHIOPIA scrapped accessibility for primal cacophony, EASTER was The Patti Smith Group's most approachable package of Smith's vision.
  • As an artist and songwriter, Smith constantly pushed the boundaries of rock's scope: The demented "Space Monkey" builds a visual landscape, "Because The Night" melds pop with literary intention, and "Ghost Dance" transcends all musical genres to become a mantra. Possibly the most powerful track on the album is Smith's epic "Babelogue/Rock N Roll Nigger" segue, where she incorporates Jimi Hendrix, Jesus Christ and Jackson Pollack into a paean to artistic individuality and its inevitable alienation.
