All Blues'd Up!: Songs Of Janis Joplin

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Another in Entertainment One's This Ain't No Tribute series, this one features 13 tracks associated with Janis Joplin done in blues style by veteran singers in the genre. Since everything Joplin recorded essentially came out of her own Texas roadhouse approach to love, life, and music, nothing here is a serious departure from what she did in the first place, but it's nice to hear Joplin gems like "Ball and Chain" done by the great Etta James, "Piece of My Heart" in the Otis Clay version, and Taj Mahal's wonderful and inspired take on "Mercedes Benz."
