The Sound Board #13: The Great Podcast in the Sky

Eastwick

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This episode is hosted by Widgett Walls with tremendous support from Dr. J.M. Tuffley and Prof. Rob Levy.

This episode’s central topic is twofold. One: death. The death of musicians. The 27 Club. What certain musicians would be doing today if they were still around. What certain musicians are worth, even dead. Elvis. John Lennon. And more. Also: Halloween. Our picks for great Halloween albums.

Win The Woodstock Experience on CD!

Santana Woodstock Experience CD cover art Sly and the Family Stone Woodstock Experience CD cover art Johnny Winter CD cover art

That’s right…it’s a whole lotta music. And it’s not just the live sets of these artists. Oh no. Jefferson Airplane comes with their album Volunteers. Janis Joplin comes with her album I Got Dem Ol’ Kosmic Blues Again, Mama!. Santana comes with his self-titled album. Sly and the Family Stone comes with the album Stand!. And Johnny Winter comes with his self-titled album. All of which are from 1969 and all of which come in LP replica packaging inside the 2 CD set. Nice.

Anyway, I’ve got a set of all five here and I’m going to give them away to whoever’s name gets drawn when the contest ends. Just enter using the form below and enter once a day–good luck!

Janis Joplin Can (and Does) Go Home Again

Janis Joplin

Both terribly amusing and a bit sad, Janis Joplin returns home to Port Arthur, Texas for her ten-year high school reunion.

Update: Had to replace the vid…why they put this in a small bit against the background of planet Earth, I have no idea. And…updated again…without the Dick Cavett thing.

Direct link for the feedreaders.

Bonus Janis to cheer your heart after the jump…

This Just In: Janis Joplin: Pearl

Janis Joplin: Pearl CD

The only thing better than an album is an album with bonus features. We’re suckers for bonus features. And here, Columbia/Legacy will smack out on June 14th (June 20th in the UK, apparently) a new two-disc version of Janis Joplin’s Pearl. You get the original ten tracks, including “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Get It While You Can,” plus six bonus tracks. The second disc is the real bonus fun, though, with live tracks from Joplin’s tour in Canada. In addition to the previously released and mind-destroying “Ball and Chain” and six other live bits (which I believe were on a previous not-quite-as-special release of the album), you get six additional unreleased live tracks. Ah, we love us some Janis. Nobody screeches holes in the sky like she does.
