Patti Smith "Radio Ethiopia" (color vinyl) LPFan Club
Regular price $ 21.99
1976's Radio Ethiopia, the follow-up to Horses, turned out to be both more conventional in some ways and more challenging in others. A deciding factor was Jack 'aerosmith' Douglas replacement of John Cale as producer - the songs were more succinct (for the most part) this time around. The group continued to strive for the perfect balance between thought-provoking poetry and rough rock n' roll. The opening Ask the Angels was perhaps the Patti Smith Group's most straight-ahead rocker up to that point, while the exploratory reggae-tinged Ain't it Strange would be extended concert staple.
