COMMENTS: Even though it�s not the greatest sound quality, it�s listenable and it is a great show;
John Cale makes an appearance.
Unfortunately, neither label told us where & when this was recorded and 35+ years later,
we still do not know and the following is the closest we will ever get to the original source:
�This bootleg presents a live Patti Smith performance from late 1975/early 1976 in which she appears with John Cale,
who produced her just-released debut album, "Horses". Cale gets a solo spot on �I Keep a Close Watch,�
while Smith intersperses songs from "Horses" (and �Ain�t It Strange� from the upcoming "Radio Ethiopia")
with such concert covers as the Velvet Underground�s �We�re Gonna Have a Real Good Time Together� and �Pale Blue Eyes�
and the Who�s �My Generation,� as well as spicing up the proceedings with her usual commentary
on everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Giuseppe Verdi.
Especially interesting is a version of �Birdland� that makes the song�s references to Wilhelm Reich explicit.
Unfortunately, the sound quality on what must be an audience tape is low. (Also released under the title Turn It Up.)
