Groove Studio One Magazine Honors this artist with a CD giveaway contest.
Punk rock’s poet laureate, Patti Smith ranks among the most influential female rock & rollers of all time. Ambitious, unconventional, and challenging, Smith’s music was hailed as the most exciting fusion of rock and poetry since Bob Dylan’s heyday. Smith followed her own muse wherever it took her, from structured rock songs to free-form experimentalism. Her most Avant-grade outings drew a sense of improvisation and interplay from free jazz, though they remained firmly rooted in noisy, primitive three-chord rock & roll. She obliterated the expectations of what was possible for women in rock, and stretched the boundaries of how artists of any gender could express themselves.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee’s first career-spanning single CD collection, Outside Society, is a new collection of 18 signature songs remastered by Greg Calbi and Patti’s band member Tony Shanahan from all ten of Smith’s studio albums. The chronologically arranged tracks move from her 1975 debut album, Horses (“Gloria”, “Free Money”), through her last release in 2007, Twelve (“Smells Like Teen Spirit”).
Outside Society features brief recollections of each song written by Patti, who personally supervised the song choices.
