About the Author

Patti Smith is a writer, performer, and visual artist. She gained recognition in the 1970s for her revolutionary mergence of poetry and rock. Her seminal album Horses, bearing Robert Mapplethorpe’s renowned photograph, has been hailed as one of the top 100 albums of all time. Her books include Witt, Babel, Woolgathering, The Coral Sea, and Auguries of Innocence. In 2005, the French Ministry of Culture awarded Smith the prestigious title of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres, the highest honor awarded to an artist by the French Republic. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Smith married the late Fred Sonic Smith in Detroit in 1980. They had a son, Jackson, and a daughter, Jesse. Smith resides in New York City.

Format: Paperback
'Complete,' referred to her music career: here we found the complete lyrics of all her records since 1975 'Horses' to 2006 'Trampin'.' And she adds commentaries, small articles, very interesting to understand the recordings in its context: her thoughts, interests, musicians, etc.

And we found a superb photographs collection, too: Patti, musicians, rock concerts, manuscripts and typescripts, sleeves, poets, friends, family. The book's recommendable for the photographs in itself. (I would give it five stars)

Unfortunately there's no reference to the double CD compilation 'Land 1975-2002' (Arista 2002). Why? This compilation included Patti's songs that were published in the first time on its CD2: perhaps the 1974 single 'Piss Factory' (however there's a slightly different version in a photo of a typescript), the 1996 studio outtake 'Wander I Go', the 2001 live recording new song 'Higher Learning.' The lyrics of these songs aren't in the book; but the complete lyrics would be interesting for the non-English native tongue people, as me.

There's no foreword in the book so we don't know how she's selected lyrics and texts, and why did not be really a 'complete' lyrics compilation. (I gave it four stars).

Great anthropology, I truly enjoyed the photos and the lyrics...the poetry and who she is as a person. Pair the book with the music. If you also have read her memoir "just kids" you will be moved. I think the size of the book is perfect ( size of coffee table book) I also like the paperback, good quality thick papers, retro style. There were copies of lyrics of the originals done on typewriters with watermark on them. I loved it.

The condition of "Very Good" it was listed was incorrect. I wouldn't be bothered to much about that if there wasn't a page missing from it. Next time, I'll go for quality rather than price.
