Patti Smith – Free Money (1975)

Okay, following the great Penetration take on this record, I felt honour bound to post the Patti Smith original. Check the date, this is 1975 – how far ahead of the curve can you get?

To be honest, I prefer this – largely because I always prefer the version by the person who wrote a song. Anyway, you decide. I’ve posted the original LP version plus a live performance from Stockholm in 1978! The 15 seconds between 1:45 and 2:00 are one of the great quarter of a minutes in rock history! The way the descending bass line crunches repeatedly to ground zero is also perfect.

In due course, I’ll post the Patti Smith career highlight “Piss Factory”.
