and the blackest thing in harlem is white: the patti smith group executing 26 versions of (we're gonna have) (a) real good time (together) between 1974 and 1977

 
gored mournink, am=ericka! this is the original classic patti smith group execoutioneering 26 versions of a wombatourful great song of the late=layed velvet underground called (we're gonna have) (a) real good time (together) at various places between 1974 and 1977!


the patti smith group of course were patti smith on vocals (and guitars and keyboreds whenever she thought an aesthetic intervention was necessary), lenny kaye on guitars and bass, ivan kral on bass and guitars, jay dee daugherty on drums, and richard sohl on keybroads. 

 
though some of the following tracks of course are part of my very own record collection, i must admit that i found most of the tracks on the wonderful sugarmegs server that is offering litterallye thousands of live concerts by the likes of the grateful dead, the beatles, the kinks, bob dylan, the ramones, the velvet underground, pink floyd and the stooges, to name but a few.
