Review: In 'Janis: Little Girl Blue,' Exploring Joplin's Demons
30 November 2015 @ 8:25 am

"Like the late Otis Redding, she has both a soft and a hard side to her voice. And like Mr. Redding, she does not sound as if she had been cast out of some sort of mold and was only there to make dance music; so many soul acts have that fault. Miss Joplin has never been better." - New York Times on Janis' performance at Fillmore East this week in 1969.
