Poetic, incendiary performance. Mesmeric turbulence. So New York. Live from the Orpheum Theater, Madison, WI, March 8, 1976. Sourced and remastered from the original WXRT broadcast. "We imagined ourselves as the Sons of Liberty with a mission to preserve, protect, and project the revolutionary spirit of rock and roll. We feared that the music which had given us sustenance was in danger of spiritual starvation. We feared it losing its sense of purpose, we feared it falling into fattened hands, we feared it floundering in a mire of spectacle, finance, and vapid technical complexity."
The Band: Patti Smith, Lenny Kaye – Guitar, Jay Dee Dougherty – Drums, Ivan Krahl – Bass, Richard Sohl - Piano
