'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 as when it came out in 1979.

'Radio Ethiopia is the follow up to Smith's widely acclaimed debut Horses.   In interviews surrounding the album's release, Smith explained that she chose producer Jack Douglas in hopes of making the album a commercial success. But the record turned out to be one of Patti Smith's most experimental pieces of music she has ever produced in her ingenious career.   This album takes the complexity and experimentation of the vocal poetry of Horses and infuses it into a new sound. The record comes with a 4 page insert written by Mrs. Smith herself.

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."
