Wave
 turned out to be the last album the Patti Smith Group would record, as it was also last 
album Smith would record before a nine year hiatus. The Godmother Of Punk decided to focus on her family life and moved to Michigan, but not before leaving us with gems like the sexually mysterious "Dancing Barefoot" (dedicated to her husband to be Fred 'Sonic' Smith) and her amazing, biting version of "So You Want To Be (A Rock 'n' Roll Star)". 

Produced by Todd Rundgren, this is her most pop-oriented album, and many at the time could not appreciate her more accessible sound. Nevertheless, "Wave", her spoken word tribute to Pope John Paul I (who reigned for only 33 days) is as touching and harrowing now when it came out in 1979.

Punk rock's poet laureate, Patti Smith ranks among the most influential female rock & rollers 
of all time. Ambitious, unconventional, and challenging, Smith's music was hailed as the most exciting fusion of rock and poetry since Bob Dylan's heyday. Smith followed her own muse wherever it took her, from structured rock songs to free-form experimentalism, or even completely out of music at times. Her most avant-garde outings drew a sense of improvisation and interplay from free jazz, though they remained firmly rooted in noisy, primitive three-chord rock & roll.

Essentially the first art-punk album, Smith's John Cale produced 1975 debut Horses offered unorthodox covers of party-rock tunes like "Gloria" and "Land of 1000 Dances" as well as a mix of original songs and lengthy, improv-driven spoken word pieces. Despite nonexistent airplay, it sold well enough to climb into the Top 50. 1976 follow-up, Radio Ethiopia, was credited to the Patti Smith Group, and placed some of Smith's most straightforward rock songs ("Ask the Angels," "Pumping (My Heart)" directly alongside some of her most experimental, free-form pieces (the title track).

Easter is an album by the Patti Smith Group, released in March 1978. Produced by Jimmy Iovine, it is regarded as the group's commercial breakthrough, owing to the success of the single, "Because the Night" (co-written by Bruce Springsteen and Smith), which reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #5 in the UK. Easter incorporated a diversity of musical styles, though still including classic rock and roll ("25th Floor/High on Rebellion", "Rock N Roll Nigger"), folk ("Ghost Dance"), spoken word ("Babelogue") and pop music ("Because the Night"). The album was highly acclaimed upon its release. Writing in Rolling Stone, Dave Marsh called the album "transcendent and fulfilled."
