Happy birthday to one of my favorite all time singers, Janis Joplin.  Janis died at age 27 from a heroin overdose in 1970.  I love Janis’ music so much and it’s hard to pick a favorite album to recommend if you are discovering her gift for the first time.  All of her albums are essential.  What you’ll hear is a woman whose soul was on fire while she sang.  I’ve rarely heard the rawness or intensity that exists on every Janis Joplin song. Happy birthday Pearl.  We miss you!
