• january tyme First Time from Memphis (LP, £20.75)

    label: akarma

    The title alone sheds light on what, upon listening, becomes confirmed. A mix of blues and rock with a touch of soul that never goes bad. Produced by Enterprise Records in 1969, the label was wisely distributed by Stax. Today, finally, you'll see that the light gives justice to the great voice of singer January Tyme, for many reasons compared to the late, great Janis Joplin. The rest is filled with fuzz guitar and keyboards all over the place!
