Patti Smith, "People Have the Power"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week, although we are in the Hit Factory Recording Studio of 1988, we are also very much in the America of Here & Now for Patti Smith's "People Have The Power", first released on Arista in June 1988...
"Round my house, Patti Smith is known as "Saint Patti" or "Notre Dame des Colombes" (our lady of the doves) and is held in high regard not only as a rock'n'roll singer, poet and writer, but also as a kick-ass mother and wife.
This one, co-written and co-produced with her husband, the late Fred "Sonic" Smith (ex-MC5), is a regular go-to for me, whenever political anxiety rears its head. A kind of Psalm 23, if you will." - KV
