Janis JoplinPearl ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ... $29.99
The sound of a legend – a raw rocking classic from Janis Joplin – arguably the most perfectly-formed record from her all-too-short run in modern music! There's a focus here that's even sharper than before – and a rising of the funky undercurrents that Janis always had in her music, matched with vocals that are some of the most soulful you could ever hope for from the blue-eyed hippie generation! The album was the last one that Janis ever recorded, and it's a classic through and through – with titles that include "Move Over", "Cry Baby", "A Woman Left Lonely", "Trust Me", "Get It While You Can", and "Mercedes Benz". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing with 2-B/2-C matrix. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Waller Creek Boys with Janis JoplinWaller Creek Boys ... LP
Lysergic Sound, 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Janis Joplin may be best known for her contributions to mainstream rock at the end of the 60s – but here, she's a much younger singer, working in a very cool, rootsy group from the Austin scene – a trio that features her own vocals and work on autoharp, with Waller Creek Boys Lanny Wiggins on acoustic guitar and Powell St John on harmonica – both of whom would go onto later fame in the Texas underground! The style here is nicely rootsy – folk blues, but with some original material by Janis – who's already got this incredible voice on the sessions, even though she's only 19 years old. Some of the recording quality is a bit raw, but that also maybe makes the music sound even more intense – as you'll hear on titles that include "How Long", "No Reason For Livin", "Trouble In Mind", "Daddy Daddy Daddy", "Banks Of The Ohio", "St James Infirmary", "Railroad Bill", and "Winnin Boy Blues".

✨✧ Barney HoskynsSmall Town Talk – Bob Dylan, The Band, Van Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix & Friends In The Wild Years Of Woodstock (hardcover) ... Book
Da Capo, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 26.99
There's few folks who do a better job of painting a picture of an important scene in rock music than Barney Hoskyns – and that's definitely the case here, as the author presents a very vivid history of the town of Woodstock, New York – and its relationship to key musical figures of the 60s and 70s! The town's best known for its famous festival in 1969, and for the residence of Bob Dylan – and while Dylan may have helped put Woodstock on the musical map, the tiny town also played host to countless others – some as longer residents, some as artists making the scene in ways that really shaped their music – all of which is covered here in great detail. The list of artists in the title is only the beginning – and at some level, "Woodstock" might be the great secret artist lurking in the musical history as well – spun out over 400 pages in this hardcover edition, with a small section of black and white images.

Big Brother & The Holding CompanyBig Brother & The Holding Company ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. Very Good+ ... $18.99
The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin compared to the bigger sounding records to come, which actually works incredibly well – as Janis's voice just tears right through in a really exciting way. The rawer Big Brother backdrop is great, too! Titles include "Easy Rider", "Bye, Bye Baby", "Intruder", "Women Is Losers", Moondog's "All Is Lonliness", and "Down On Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Late 70s Columbia Special Products pressing – with two extra songs listed on the labels. Cover has light discoloration on the left side.)

VariousStudio Wizardry Of Todd Rundgren ... CD
Ace (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 22.99
Todd Rundgren's known to most as a hell of a songwriter, and a singer with surprising charms – but he's also a genius in the studio, with talents that were first demonstrated on all of his early self-produced classics – then shared with some key acts in the 70s and 80s! As with his own music, Rundgren really has a way with making a tune come together – a special ear for getting everything to sound right, but at a level that's simple and understated – so that all the best qualities of a song come out perfectly, but without making you feel like you're being hit over the head by the process behind the music! That quality is on great display here – in a set of 22 numbers that feature Rundgren at the helm, with details that are extrapolated more fully in the detailed notes within – but which come through loud and clear on tunes that include "Baby Blue" by Badfinger, "Long Times Gone" by Felix Cavaliere, "You're Much Too Soon" by Hall & Oates, "Frederick" by Patti Smith, Heaven's Falling" by Cheap Trick, "Jet Boy" by New York Dolls, "One Night Stand" by Janis Joplin, "L5" by New England, "We're An American Band" by Grand Funk Railroad, "Dear God" by XTC, "Something Warm" by Rick Derringer, "Long Road Home" by Fanny, "Fa La Fa Lee" by Sparks, "Piece By Piece" by The Tubes, "Love Is The Answer" by Utopia, "Goodbye" by The Psychedelic Furs, and "She's So Young" by The Pursuit Of Happiness.

✨✧ Big Brother & The Holding CompanyCheap Thrills ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cheap Thrills, maybe – but they cut deeply and last forever! This is one of greatest albums by Big Brother & The The Holding Company – and it's also one of the most important in cementing the legacy of singer Janis Joplin. The raw manic energy of the group at their live best is somehow bottled and presented on record as perfectly as ever could be – and even better are the delicate moments that show such an incredible depth! Titles include "Turtle Blues", "Oh Sweet Mary", "Ball & Chain", "Summertime", "Piece Of My Heart", and "I Need A Man To Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s pressing – PC 9700. Cover has large index labels at the top corners in front and back, with wide clear tape holding the spine.)

✨✧ Vinegar JoeFiner Things – The Island Recordings 1972/1973 (Vinegar Joe/Rock & Roll Gypsies/Six Star General/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Island/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of overlooked albums from UK group Vinegar Joe – packaged here with bonus tracks as well! First up is the group's debut, Vinegar Joe – a record with a UK blend of roots rock and deeper blues currents – but served up in that 70s style that takes all the best elements way past their familiar incarnations! The group sports two singers – a young Robert Palmer and female vocalist Elkie Brooks – and although Palmer would soon emerge as a more pop-oriented artist, he's got plenty of soulful chops here – but maybe still only second to Elkie, who soars out with the sort of inspiration that must have touched Janis Joplin as well. Titles include "Circles", "Leg Up", "See The World", "Never Met A Dog", "Live A Little Get Somewhere", and "Avinu Malkenu". Next up is Rock & Roll Gypsies – a record with a really wonderful sound – tight, but never too polished – maybe that UK love of American soul inspirations that folks know more famously in work by artists like Joe Cocker or Traffic, but which is served up here with a really unique feel by the overlooked Vinegar Joe! The group sports a fantastic lead female vocalist in Elkie Brooks, who'd later go on to make some great records on her own – and a young Robert Palmer rounds out the lyrics with a quality that's so different than his later work, and maybe even more soulful overall. Titles include "Falling", "It's Gettin To The Point", "Buddy Can You Spare Me A Line", "Angel", "No One Ever Do", "Forgive Us", and "Charley's Horse". Last up is Six Star General – the third album from Vinegar Joe, and a set that we're not sure got the same global circulation as the earlier albums – which is a real shame, as the group here are maybe even more focused on their sound than before! By this point, Robert Palmer has left the group, but the wonderful Elkie Brooks is still in the lead on guitar – and the group have impeccable instrumentation from Jim Mullen on guitar, Keef Harley on drums, and Mike Deacon on keyboards. Titles include "Proud To Be", "Black Smoke Rising From The Calumet", "Let Me Down Easy", "Fine Thing", "Lady Of The Rain", and "Dream My Own Dreams". Also features bonus tracks "Speed Queen Of Ventura", "Long Way Round", and single versions of "Black Smoke Rising From The Calument" and "Rock & Roll Gypsies". CD

✨✧ IbisIbis (with bonus track) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ibis are one of those Italian groups from the 70s with a sound so strong, they make you forget that you don't even know the words to their lyrics – as the focus on all the other elements in the record is so great! These guys are maybe a bit more reined in than some of their longform prog contemporaries, but not by much – and they use their more compact space to provide some focus to tunes with guitar lines so heavy, and hooks so powerful, it might take you a minute to realize they're singing in Italian – especially when you start enjoying the production on the vocals. Titles include "Narratio", "Premessa", "Dedicated To Janis Joplin", "Strada", and "Ritrovarci Qui". CD features the bonus track "Noi". CD
(Part of the "Golden Era Of Rock – 1965 to 1975" series!)

✨✧ SmithGroup Called Smith/Minus Plus ... CD
Dunhill/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of albums from the obscure group Smith – back to back on a single CD! First up is their debut – Group Called Smith – work from a group who've got a sound that's maybe more in the mode of what you might expect to find in a small club on the Sunset Strip – as Smith have a way of taking hits by other groups, and turning them into songs that are all their own – thanks to a tight little blend of organ, guitar, bass, and drums – often topped with the lead vocals of Gayle McCormick! Gayle later recorded a few solo albums on her own – and she's a great singer with a richly soulful style – one that should have made her huge in the generation of contemporaries like Janis Joplin. There's also a male singer in the group, so the leads get alternated – and the tunes also have some larger production touches from arranger Jimmy Haskell. Titles include "Who Do You Love", "Last Time", "Let's Spend The Night Together", "Baby It's You", "Let's Get Together", "Who Do You Love", and "Tell Him No". Minus Plus is a great little second album from Smith – a set that's got all the best elements of their debut, and some nice added touches too! Singer Gayle McCormick seems to be even more in the lead than before, and there's also more fresh original material too – supported by the small combo instrumentation of the group, then given some nice larger arrangements from Jimmie Haskell! Titles include "Minus Plus", "Circle Man", "You Don't Love Me", "Born In Boston", "Come Back To Me", "Feel The Magic", "Jason", and "What Am I Gonna Do". CD
