About This Item

[New York]: Mer Records, 1974. Hardcover. Fine. Original 7" vinyl 45 RPM record. Fine in modestly age-toned, about fine plain white sleeve as issued, in the original mailing envelope. Signed by Patti Smith on the white sleeve. Also included is a small, age-toned clipping from *The Village Voice* advertising a contemporary performance by Smith at Max's Kansas City, listing the book and record stores where this record could be purchased, and noting that it could be purchased directly for $2.50 from Sunburst Industries. Patti Smith's first vinyl single, "Hey Joe" and "Piss Factory" on the B side, produced by Lenny Kaye for Robert Mapplethorpe. The record, mailer, and clipping are housed in (and easily removable from) an acrylic stand. An exceptionally uncommon record, the original mailer is rare. This copy is addressed to R.W. Bayley in Forest Knolls, California, with the return address of The WARTOKE Concern in New York (listing the same Broadway address as Sunburst Industries), and postmarked September 26, 1974. The recipient, Roberta Bayley, is a photographer who created one of the most important photographic records of the punk scene as it germinated in New York City, and she was also the co-author (with Victor Bockris) of the first biography of Patti Smith (*Patti Smith*. New York: Simon & Schuster 1999). The clipping is pictured in the biography. Her iconic photographs (including the photo that graced the jacket of the first Ramones album) helped define the New York punk aesthetic. Her reminiscences in Leg McNeil and Gillian McCain's *Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk*, possibly the best single volume source of the early history of punk, were central to the book.
