Release Info: Patti Smith Group - Wave (1979)
"Produced by pop master Todd Rundgren, the album was more abstract than its predecessor, but another strong set of tunes were featured. The album-opening pop rocker, "Frederick," is a tribute to Patti's new love, while a pair of songs would receive greater exposure when covered by other bands--"Dancing Barefoot" (later performed by U2) and the bonus track "Fire of Unknown Origin" (covered by Blue Oyster Cult). Also featured was an uptempo rendition of The Byrd's "So You Want To Be (A Rock N' Roll Star)," "Citizen Ship," and the title track. Although Patti Smith would later come out of retirement, WAVE was the last album to include the complete, original Patti Smith Group." (CDuniverse review)
