Patti Smith, pioneering punk diva, has always worshipped at the altar of the word, and she opens this book with a quote from her mentor and friend, the late Allen Ginsberg: "The typewriter is holy the poem is holy the voice is holy the hearers are holy the ecstasy is holy." If that is true, then this volume serves as Smith's Book of Common Prayer, containing all the lyrics from her past seven albums, and spanning two-and-a-half decades. She picks out both salient and arcane compositions and annotates them with an unstinting eye for detail and history, allowing us to stand a moment in her flat-heeled karate shoes and see what inspired her to pen these songs. Who among us suspected that 1971's "Redondo Beach," with its grizzly images of loss and suicide, was written about an argument Smith had with her sister?

In addition to the thumbnail sketches and the unexpurgated journal entries, Smith has collected more than 150 photographs (some never before published) by the likes of Annie Liebovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Michael Stipe, and Linda McCartney. There is one particularly disturbing image of the singer during her painful recovery from a broken back, which she suffered as a result of a stage fall in 1977, proving that there is little that Smith has held back in her effort to communicate who she is to her fans. Why did she go to all the trouble? According to Smith, her fans had been clamouring for her to publish her lyrics for years, but until recently she didn't feel she had a substantial enough body of work. Besides, she claims that she was tired of everyone else deconstructing her songs and publishing what they thought she meant. "And they were always inaccurate," she writes. So, now, Patti Smith is finally able to set the record straight. --Jaan Uhelszki -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Through the years I have always been frustrated by the lack of a lyric sheet with Patti Smith's albums. I thought her marriage of poetry and rock deserved better. And there were many parts of her songs that I just couldn't make out, what with her broad NY drawl, so this book came as a godsend. And yes, I was invariably wrong in my guessing! So to the book: excellent photographs, insightful annotations and those wonderful songs that work equally well on the printed page but really come alive with her music. Excellent design, typography, layout; highly recommended.

Patti Smith has put together an impecable collection of her lyrics. Yet unlike the majority of lyric books these days (they mostly look like text books that publishers just throw togehter) you can tell Patti was present and an integral part of each pages' layout. The lyrics scan like the poems they are. Each of the 150 mostly unpublised photographs are reproduced beautifully. This is a fine example of an artisit transcending one of their forms and creating an entirely new work. Thank you Patti

Over a year in compiling , this truely beautifully designed and executed volume spans three decades of the work of a great American artist.She has taken herself to task and delivered a very close look at her output of these times. A sister to her volume , Early Works , this really is inspirational . All who appreciate her fine exploratory albums should not hesitate to purchase this book.Spiced with great photographs and found fond rememberances ,this book is so much more. Though some pieces have not found thier way here. Smith says she just forgot the hand full of lyrics missing.I assume they will appear in a future volume. The notes of for the future segment is a new piece of poetry. I believe inspired ( in it's appearance here) by the Phtp fanzine and it's poetry segments. I hope that all who think about purchasing this great book do not hesitate.
