Here is a web site that lists Janis Joplin's "Unofficial CDs". Scroll down
to the bottom for the earlier years. Not sure where you might find one to
buy. Perhaps if you surf the site you'll find a link.

I guess these CDs are like the ones we all make. Hard to find from a legit
source. :-) VBG.


The CD with Oxtot is listed under "Various" and is titled "Blow All My Blues
Away." He is on CD #2. There are 8 CDs listed under that title. Plus there
are other early CDs with OKOM tunes on them, from the early 1960s to 1966 or
so when she joined Big Brother & The Holding Company. Possibly others with
Oxtot, where he is not listed.

Isn't it amazing how music evolves? The link between Janis Joplin and OKOM
is largely ignored, yet a real part of the History of Blues to Jazz. And a
real part of the History of Blues to Jazz to Rock & Roll etc. IMO Janis
Joplin was Bessie Smith reincarnated. Just born again a little too late to
create OKOM Blues and so she took that next creative step, that's all.
