Another female singer today but a totally different can of worms from yesterday's offerings.
I have finally gotten round to listening to Disc 2 of the Patti Smith anthology Land (1975 -2002) which features demos, live tracks and the occasional final track.
Let's start with one which was mentioned in dispatches by commentators when I featured Disc one. Here is a demo from 1975 of Redondo Beach the final version of which graces Horses.There is a lovely reggae feel to this one.
The live version of 25th Floor which features on Easter has more of a rock'n'roll feel about it Recorded in Eugene, Oregon in 1978.
