Review quote

"The first great rock'n'roll collection to be published since Dylan's Lyrics: 1962-1985." --"Salon "Her influence in music today is undeniable. There's not anybody I know in a band anywhere who does not revere the records she put out. There was a rawness and energy to Horses that I had not heard in any other music. From then on, my life was changed." --Michael Stipe, R.E.M. "Patti Smith is not only a great performer, she is a shaman--that is, someone in touch with other levels of reality." --William S. Burroughs
