The second album from the punk poet released in 1976.

"Smith's second album, Radio Ethiopia (1976), is very much a '70s album. She surprised many, and disappointed some of her punkier following, by turning to producer Jack Douglas and creating a guitar-powered hard-rock record, albeit one with idiosyncratic elements. Douglas had engineered John Lennon's Imagine (1973) and the New York Dolls' eponymous album of the same year, then produced a series of Aerosmith albums, including Toys in the Attic (1975) and Rocks (1976). (He would go on to produce several Cheap Trick albums, Lennon and Yoko Ono's Double Fantasy and more Aerosmith.)

"Crediting the album to the Patti Smith Group is not accidental. Her vocals, including her yelps and wails, are treated as one among equals in the final mix, rather than as the dominant element that all the other musicians must support." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
