Janis Joplin
The Woodstock Experience – Collector’s Edition
June 30

Reconnect with your hippie spirit and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock (August 15). This two-disc set of Janis Joplin’s career-defining Woodstock performance showcases her vocal gumption and demonstrates how her pipes helped carve a place for her in a male-dominated industry.

One disc features three unreleased songs from the August 17, 1969 set, and the other is a reissue of her seminal album, I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama. Pay homage to the queen of blues by cranking this on your stereo and sipping some Southern Comfort.


Imogen Heap
Ellipse
August 4

Heap’s unique, one-woman show includes funky voice effects that will simultaneously uplift and spook you (check out the 2005 track “Hide and Seek” for evidence). Every song offers a cinematic quality that’s both over the top and yet amazingly simple. Her promotion of Ellipse includes a series of video blogs on her website that chronicles her recording process. Expect intimacy and eccentricity with this album.
