Louis Jacinto Photo Column, Patti Smith
Patti Smith, Licorice Pizza Records, West Hollywood, Calif. 1978 | photo by Louis Jacinto, onodream.com
I love posting these images of Patti Smith performing in the parking lot of Licorice Pizza Records on the Sunset Strip back in 1978.
Here she was with her third album on a major label, and she was still staying close and intimate with us. And her music continued to be punk and beyond. Easter, her third album, which was the work she was promoting, is still an untouchable piece of pure art.
