The two-disc set LAND (1975-2002) is post-punk icon Patti Smith's own selection of her finest work from the first quarter-century of her career. The first disc, a best-of collection, is a non-chronological sampling of her key songs ("Dancing Barefoot," "Because the Night," and many more) and adds one new track, a surprisingly effective cover of Prince's "When Doves Cry" that sounds like an outtake from 1978's EASTER. (Confusingly, the track list doesn't include the "Land" medley from 1975's HORSES.) The second disc starts with Smith's incredibly rare 1974 DIY single "Piss Factory," but then runs through previously unheard demos (like a skeletal early version of "Redondo Beach" that sounds more like crazed calliope music than the reggae song it became) and revelatory live tracks. LAND (1975-2002) is a thoughtful, idiosyncratic compilation, but it's more for fans than newcomers, who are still best advised to get a copy of HORSES and move on from there.
