Details

Placing the record on the turntable, putting the needle into the groove, none of the ritualistic operations of the act of listening to a record could prepare the listener for the visceral and intellectual disturbance of 'Gloria (In Excelsis Deo)'. A live highlight from the CBGBs sets, the song's opening lines, adapted from the poem 'Oath', have lost none of their power to shock. HORSES, to many of those who heard it upon its release in late 1975, was a revolutionary album and marked the debut of an astonishing talent. Here, British scholar details the early life and career of its creator, Patti Smith, looking closely at her poetry and performances from the early '70s through to the album's genesis. The result is an insightful and revealing study of one of rock music's landmark records and the artistic milieu from which it sprang. Keep up with 33 1/3 series news.
