For the most part, radio in the U.S. plays crap. There's some good stuff out there, but you'd never know it. That ends right now.

From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Room 105: The Highs and Lows of Janis Joplin

Last week was an interesting one music wise for me. I was able to attend two live shows and you know how that makes me smile. The first show was Blues at the Crossroads 2, which I have already reviewed, and the second show was Room 105: The Highs and Lows of Janis Joplin.

The show features the great singer Sophie B. Hawkins as Janis, and takes you back in time through the memories of the spirit of Janis. Her hard and unhappy life is depicted through on ongoing monologue and of course through the kickass music of Joplin. Janis used to say that onstage she made love to thousands of people... but went home home. This show brings to life exactly what she meant.

The full review is now featured on ourvinyl.com as Room 105: The Highs and Lows of Janis Joplin. Click on the link and check it out.
