An iconic and celebrated artist whose cultural standing in America remains resolute and heavily influential. Patti Smith, Jay Dee Daugherty, Lenny Kaye, Ivan Kral and Richard Sohl headed out on their first US tour to promote the release of their debut album Horses, released only two months earlier in November 1975.

Their legendary appearance at Boston's Jazz Workshop displays the trademark riotous atmosphere of New York's punk ethos with Smith's habitual expletives being hurled around before WBCN could pull the plug on a live broadcast.

An anticipating crowd, hungry for danger and provocation from the rising star who at one point comments 'I don't know if we're still on air...' Luckily she was and with continued excesses after their euphoric show closer with Van Morrison's Gloria, John Cale punctures the low ceiling of the Workshop stage with the neck of his guitar prompting the end of the show and the end of the live broadcast.
