First Disc of Patti Smith’s Horses/Horses: The anarchy-in-the-U.S. 1975 debut that announced the arrival of both Smith and the budding American punk scene. Bonus Disc: A new, in-concert reprise of the album taped this summer. A risky proposition, especially 30 years after the fact, but Smith is still remarkably fierce — she’s a voodoo adult, not child, at this point — and the album now feels like an incantation. Still the unapologetic old-school boho poet, she sounds more than ever like her hero, Dylan — even slipping a putdown of BlackBerrys and cell phones into ”Land.”
