Golden Oldies

Janis Joplin - Work Me Lord.

A lot of white soul/blues/jazz artists are often described as sounding "black" - Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Boy George ( WTF?!) but, they rarely ever do. To me Amy, Duffy, Boy George (and others) all sound like white people imitating black musicians. But, with Janis it's different. She sounds like she should look like Aretha Franklin. I'm not the least bit religious, but I just love this song.
