Patti Smith - Hey Joe


On this date in 1977, Patti Smith released her sixth single, "Hey Joe (Version)" backed by "Piss Factory". Both were non-LP tracks. Both songs were recorded in 1974 and this single was actually originally released at that time. This time, there was a picture sleeve. Tom Verlaine, of Television, played guitar on the A side. The New Jersey singer was one of the founders of the NYC punk scene and was a regular at CBGB's. She was the last performer on stage on October 15, 2006, the last night that CBGB's was open.
