Patti Smith
December 31, 2001
Bowery Ballroom, New York City, USA

(All the jpegs and FLAC files are identical to those in the previous torrent. I had to remove the .txt suffix from the Fingerprint filename, so I added the .md5 checksum and changed the info.txt file.)

My favorite Patti New Years Eve show.

SQ: Almost excellent, I rate it "A-". The two previous postings of this torrent received 246 Snatches and remained on the tracker 567 days.

Lineage: Audience recording of otherwise unknown lineage, CDR I received by mail (when it was treed during 2002)>EAC>Audacity>Sound Forge>FLAC(level 8)

Artwork included; many thanks to G. The Cock for creating the very cool artwork! Thanks for the inside front cover and the "Winged Messenger" title also go to Steve B. who created the artwork for the 2002 tree using original art by jen may. Steve B.'s treed artwork is not included but can be seen at

Some static during Elegie.

It was treed on 3 discs, but it fits on 2 discs so I retracked after using Audacity to combine WAVs and eliminate a 12-second overlap on the old discs 2 and 3.
I removed .796 seconds of silence at a cut d2@57:12.529

Patti Smith: vocals, guitar, clarinet
Lenny Kaye: guitar
