Patti Smith, one of the icons of the 70's, shares her insights into a changing world by using prose and poetry, some of which she turned into wonderful songs. 10,000 Maniacs covered her hauntingly beautiful "Because the Night" (Belongs to Lovers). Also included are incredible photos and drawings. Her poems include "radio ethiopia", "alien to alien", "sister morphine", "pipe dreams", "mohammedia", "corps de plane" and "babel". She cuts right into the heart and soul of the era.

Portions of this collection also appear in Patti Smith's more recent EARLY WORK. Nonetheless, BABEL is another essential item for Smith's fans, delving into her mythologial fascinations with intriguing results. A number of snapshots - everything from family photos to candids of icons like Marianne Faithfull are scattered throughout. -David Alston
