Kozmic Blues & Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin’s solo career was cut short by, well, Janis. But while some reviewers trashed her first solo effort – “I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama” – I have always been willing to give it some praise. Because it was a bellwether of the good things to come, even if we only ever got the merest glimpse.
