Rediscovering an Old Favorite

I just read Patti Smith’s memoir Just Kids and wrote about it on our book blog.

Not surprisingly, I then listened to Horses and realized it had been many years since I had played what had once been one of my favorites. I have renewed appreciation of what a great album this is, now that I more fully understand her earlier work first as a poet, then as a performance artist, then a musician, and now an author. What a talented woman!

I rediscovered an old favorite and won’t wait so many years to listen to this again.
