AMAZING, FORGOTTEN PATTI SMITH GROUP SHOW WITH IGGY, DAVID JOHANSEN & OTHERS (BUT NO PATTI), 1977
On March 9th, 1977, members of the Patti Smith Group played an incredible yet little-known gig. A recent accident had sidelined Smith, and it’s likely the guys in Patti’s band did this show (and at least one other at the same venue) in order to both stay active and make a few bucks while Smith was temporarily out of commission. A slew of special guests appeared with them over the course of the March 9th performance—and we have the audio.
