"Janis Joplin, Kozmic Blues - 180 Gram"

JANIS JOPLIN - KOZMIC BLUES- 180 Gram Limited Edition classic LP high-definition Virgin Heavy Vinyl pressing FROM THE ORIGINAL LABEL AND THE 1ST EDITION 180 GRAM PRESSING EVER MADE OF THIS TITLE. Collectors Note: This limited edition pressing is now out of print & gone from the last distributor that had any of these pressing left within their inventory. This means that this specific title is "Here Today but For Sure Gone Tomorrow Forever". So Don't Miss Out on adding this to your collection beacuse mymusicfix only has a couple copies left forever. The ultimate record -- the way music was meant to be heard and of superior quality for any Audiophile. KOZMIC BLUES was Janis Joplin's first solo Album after she left Big Brother and the Holding Company. The one big change from Big Brother was that this release centered around a horn section that received a very positive response when Janis toured Europe the Spring of this LP's release. There was considerable turnover among the players pulled in for the sessions and considerable discontent as well. The best tracks on this Album resulted from a single session in June of 1969 - superbly delivered renditions of "One Good Man" and Little Girl Blue" with Mike Bloomfield on guitar. The Rogers & Hart Estates, however, absolutely loathed Joplin's version of this song. Joplin changed the words somewhat and made a magnificent tear-jerker out of a song that was first performed by Doris Day. When Janis Joplin died in October 1970 at t he early age of 27, thus involuntarily confirming the beatnik adage "live fast, love hard, die young," it was only a matter of time before she was crowned the "Queen of Rock." Of greater importance than this posthumous entry into rock 'n' roll's hall of fame is the recognition during her lifetime of her explosive vocal style, which - so Vogue - "turned the whole history of singing upside down." Joplin's discography is just as short and changeable as her life. After two LP releases with the standard "cast" of rock musicians in the band Big Brother And The Holding Company, with whose excellent musical support she obtained her first recording contract with Columbia Records in 1968, the company provided her with a group augmented with organ and winds. For those Woodstock fans whose ears are still ringing with the band's full, meaty wind sound and Janis' bluesy soul singing, this album is an absolute must. Songs included are TRY JUST A LITTLE BIG HARDER - MAYBE - AS GOOD AS YOU'VE BEEN TO THIS WORLD - SOMEBODY TO LOVE - KOZMIC BLUES - WORK ME LORD.
