These Golden Globes were the first major awards ceremony to take place in the post- Donald Trump era, but the subject of the former commander in chief wasn’t entirely avoided. Diversity dominated the discussion all evening, but some of the winners referred to Trump’s false claims to have won the election, which drove his supporters to storm the Capitol last month.

Janis herself has never sounded better on record, but it took me four full listenings to the LP before I could hear her. That’s how bad her band is. When (and if) you get hold of this record, my suggestion is that you listen really hard to how awful the backup is — everything from the arrangements to the level of musicianship. Those sons of bitches can’t do anything really right. The only answer is to get super-familiar with what they’re doing so you can ignore it. And then dig Janis. They can’t be that bad, you say? On “Try,” they stutter along like Stax rejects, thudding out a 16-to-the-bar quick-step so metronomic it defies you to pat your foot, let alone get up and dance. Janice sounds great, but — “One Good Man” contains perhaps the only instrumental blessing on the whole record, wherein Sam Andrew plays a tolerable bottleneck introduction and obbligato to Janis’ vocal. At least the rest of the band is relaxed on this track, even if they add nothing. (Disconcerting … [Read more...] about I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!
