What we're listening to this week. Patti Smith 'Horses'.
Just that we heard that Patti Smith is coming to Dublin this Summer to play 'Horses' live, we decided to stick it on.
Considered a punk album (but it's not) and released 1975 with the iconic Robert Mapplethorpe cover - shot in Greenwich Village (we note the jacket has a horse shaped pin) - and featuring a cover version of Ireland's own Van Morrison's 'Gloria'.
It was Patti Smith's debut and 40 years later, just blew everyone in the office away.
Because quite simply, it's one of the greatest albums ever made. There can't be any arguments. It just is.
