some Patti Smith tonight…

Yes, Patti Smith is wild and wonderful. In 2007 she released a covers album called Twelve. So here are some great performances, plus the album version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” because it’s amazing. Three versions of “Teen Spirit” because her spoken-word bit is different each time, and each performance is unique. Two performances of “Gloria” because they’re almost 30 years apart and that’s interesting in itself. Plus, she did “Gimme Shelter,” which tends to be great.

One thought on “some Patti Smith tonight…”

  1. Wow – Gloria! What a great song. I see why you put it on twice. Both are so different. The improvs in 1979 are great, and the audience is so wild! Her attitude towards the crowd vs. security reminds me of Tori’s. I love these.
