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!
