Janis Joplin: The Wildest Girl-Creature?
Peter Jones, Record Mirror, 12 April 1969
THEY CALL her: "The new American talent-character; the wildest girl-creature to burst on the in-person and disc scene yet." They call her: "a kind of mixture of Leadbelly, a steam engine, Calamity Jane, Bessie Smith, an oil derrick and rot-gut bourbon, funnelled into the 20th century between El Paso and San Francisco."
