Janis Joplin Woodstock ExperienceRock God Cred Report:

This will be the first of five great new releases of the Woodstock Experience sessions that we will visit.  The cd’s are being released to coincide with the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Festival.  They pair a keystone album by the artist with a second disc of their live set at the original Woodstock Concert 8/17/69.

The first cd we will take a look at is the pairing of Janis Joplin’s “I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama” & the second cd has their live set at Woodstock.  One listen to the “Kozmic Blues” album, and you will think it’s the female version of Otis Redding backed by the “Stax” house band.  This album has aged well…I do believe most remember Janis as the screaming blues singer that fronted Big Brother, and they leave it at that. Oh yes…there are a few shrieks, and screams, but there is a ton of soul here.  Plenty of money songs on this one…”Try (Just a Little Bit Harder)”, “To Love Somebody (Bee Gees cover)”, “As Good As You ‘ve Been to This World”, “Kozmic Blues”, and more.

Plus you get Janis’ love set at Woodstock that includes: “Raise Your Hand”, “As Good as You’ve Been to This World”, “To Love Somebody”, “Summertime”, “Try (Just a Little Bit Harder)”, “Kozmic Blues”, “Can’t Turn You Loose (Otis Redding cover previously unissued)”, “Work Me Lord”, “Piece of My Heart”, and “Ball and Chain”…two cd’s full of blues and bliss!
