No Body No Where No Time

I’m watching the 1969 performance of Janis Joplin on the Dick Cavett DVD, doing “To Love Somebody,” and I was reminded of how many people have been spouting nonsense about different contestants on the television talent shows “sound like Janis Joplin.”  I tell you what, you listen to Janis Joplin in 1969 belting this song (or any number of others) and you can’t say that with a straight face.  I will put this as colloquially as possible:  Ain’t NO-BODY got voice power like Janis Joplin in 1969 and not likely anyone ever will.
