Patti Smith: Art for Art's Sake
Gary Kenton, Phonograph Record, December 1975
I WAS ON the telephone to one of New York's successful management firms last week and, like all successful New York firms, they put me on hold for quite a spell. Luckily, they had one of those gizmos whereby you hear the radio while you're waiting for someone (anyone) to pick up and all of a sudden I hear Scott Muni introducing Patti Smith's new album, Horses, and he plays her version of 'Gloria'. By the time someone picked up on me, I had forgotten who I had called and why; flustered, I hung up and turned on the radio to listen to the rest of the song.
