Janis Joplin decided to make a sharp turn after Cheap Thrills [MOVLP464], and abandoned her previous band Big Brother And The Holding Company. Her new band, the Kozmic Blues Band provided a tighter, more soulful approach to the blues rock 'Big Brother' is known for. By going solo, Joplin made a crucial point: she's got soul for miles on end.
Featuring a horn section and a stronger emphasis on organ, I Got Them Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! yielded soul burners "Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)", "Work Me Lord" and "As Good As You've Been To This World", as well as slower tracks like "Maybe" and "Kozmic Blues". Hearing is believing!
