Work Me, Lord by Janis Joplin

Album: I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again, Mama!Released: 1969
  • It was with her friends, while in high school, that Janis Joplin firstbegan singing Blues. She eventually cultivated her own uniquewhiskey-blues sound, which would cut her out and set her safely from the herd. This 1969 recording was her first solo studio album after she left Big Brother and the Holding Company.
  • Janis performed this song at the Woodstock Music Festival of 1969. The studio version on Kozmic Blues did not quite crystallize for listeners of the album, but the live version was sung with strongervocals. Many avid fans believe the Woodstock version was one of her greatest live performances during her career. (thanks, Aisha -Regina, Canada)
