Poetry Reading 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Columbia University, New York, NY; April 3, 1975. Good to very good audience recording. Sourced from single tracked Ampex reel.

Patti Smith might have interspersed her rock shows with poetry readings but for those who would like a full show of Smith reading her poetry, this rarity’s for you.

Thanks to bossfannn for sharing the tracks on Dime.
