HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERon 20 April 2004
Joplin's debut may perhaps be described as a glorious marriage of bluesand soul. Don't be mislead by the original psychedelic album cover - thisis not the acid-rock Janis. She turns the Bee Gees' To Love Somebody intoa wrenching torch song, an at times restrained, at times desperate, butalways brilliant rendition. The arrangements impress throughout,especially in the complex and moving As Good As You've Been and KozmicBlues. Another favorite of mine is Maybe, where she out-souls ArethaFranklin. It may not be as accessible as "Pearl," but this albumnevertheless amply rewards the listener and reveals another aspect of thismistress of the desperation blues.
