Janis Joplin - Discography

Janis Joplin — Autor renovcevic @ 12:14


The greatest white female rock singer of the 1960s, Janis Joplin was also a great blues singer, making her material her own with her wailing, raspy, supercharged emotional delivery. First rising to stardom as the frontwoman for San Francisco psychedelic band Big Brother & the Holding Company, she left the group in the late '60s for a brief and uneven (though commercially successful) career as a solo artist. Although she wasn't always supplied with the best material or most sympathetic musicians, her best recordings, with both Big Brother and on her own, are some of the most exciting performances of her era. She also did much to redefine the role of women in rock with her assertive, sexually forthright persona and raunchy, electrifying on-stage presence. Joplin was raised in the small town of Port Arthur, TX, and much of her subsequent personal difficulties and unhappiness has been attributed to her inability to fit in with the expectations of the conservative community. She'd been singing blues and folk music since her teens, playing on occasion in the mid-'60s with future Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen. There are a few live pre-Big Brother recordings (not issued until after her death), reflecting the inspiration of early blues singers like Bessie Smith, that demonstrate she was well on her way to developing a personal style before hooking up with the band. She had already been to California before moving there permanently in 1966, when she joined a struggling early San Francisco psychedelic group, Big Brother & the Holding Company. Although their loose, occasionally sloppy brand of bluesy psychedelia had some charm, there can be no doubt that Joplin — who initially didn't even sing lead on all of the material — was primarily responsible for lifting them out of the ranks of the ordinary. She made them a hit at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, where her stunning version of "Ball and Chain" (perhaps her very best performance) was captured on film. After a debut on the Mainstream label, Big Brother signed a management deal with Albert Grossman and moved on to Columbia. Their second album, Cheap Thrills, topped the charts in 1968, but Joplin left the band shortly afterward, enticed by the prospects of stardom as a solo act. Joplin's first album, I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!, was recorded with the Kozmic Blues Band, a unit that included horns and retained just one of the musicians that had played with her in Big Brother (guitarist Sam Andrew). Although it was a hit, it wasn't her best work; the new band, though more polished musically, was not nearly as sympathetic accompanists as Big Brother, purveying a soul-rock groove that could sound forced. That's not to say it was totally unsuccessful, boasting one of her signature tunes in "Try (Just a Little Bit Harder)." For years, Joplin's life had been a roller coaster of drug addiction, alcoholism, and volatile personal relationships, documented in several biographies. Musically, however, things were on the upswing shortly before her death, as she assembled a better, more versatile backing outfit, the Full Tilt Boogie Band, for her final album, Pearl (ably produced by Paul Rothchild). Joplin was sometimes criticized for screeching at the expense of subtlety, but Pearl was solid evidence of her growth as a mature, diverse stylist who could handle blues, soul, and folk-rock. "Mercedes Benz," "Get It While You Can," and Kris Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee" are some of her very best tracks. Tragically, she died before the album's release, overdosing on heroin in a Hollywood hotel in October 1970. "Me and Bobby McGee" became a posthumous number one single in 1971, and thus the song with which she is most frequently identified.



2006 Popa Chubby - Electric Chubbyland

Popa Chubby — Autor renovcevic @ 09:53


Why Play Hendrix? "Good Question" says Popa from his secluded home studio nestled in the hills of the Hudson Valley. "In 1996 I got a call from a Dutch promoter asking me to be part of a Jimi Hendrix music festival. Several other guitar players were on the bill including Pat Travers, Steve Lukather, Walter Trout, Omar Dykes and others. We did 8 shows, it was a lot of fun, and then we went our separate ways. Over the next several years I was slammed with fan requests to play and record Hendrix. In 2005 another call came to tour in Holland doing Jimi's music and I could not resist. This time the demand and the response was even greater than in '96. It was the blues and rock thing coming together like never before. In 2006 I bit at the ring and decided to record the project at a club in Middletown New York. Electric Chubbyland was born."

Memphis Slim - Steady Rolling Blues

Memphis Slim — Autor renovcevic @ 02:18


Artist: Memphis Slim
Title: Steady Rolling Blues
Release: 1964
Bitrate: 320 kBit

Like Slim's other Bluesville work, this is a characteristic and very consistent effort, though not what you would single out as the cream of his recorded work. He varies the program between originals and covers of standards like "Mean Mistreatin' Mama," "Rock Me Baby," and "Goin' Down Slow," providing a touch of unpredictability by switching from the piano to the organ on a few tracks.

1 Mean Mistreatin' Mama 3:40
2 Soon One Morning 4:49
3 Steady Rolling Blues 4:35
4 Celeste's Boogie 3:41
5 Big Legged Woman 2:14
6 Rock Me Baby 2:48
7 Goin' Down Slow 5:12
8 Sweet Root Man 3:49
9 Mr. Freddie Boogie 3:56
10 Three Women Blues 3:49
