Lia’s Love is Enough

Lia Pamina - Love is Enough, from Darla Records, U.S.
Lia Pamina – Love is Enough, Elefant Records, distributed in the U.S. by Darla.

Lia Pamina’s presence on this blog goes way back, almost to its start ten years ago. I find myself supressing a sniffle or two at how proud I am of our retro 60’s girl, for sticking to her dream of presenting a lovely and sweet style of singing inspired by Margo Guryan and Claudine Longet.

Lia’s first album, “Love is Enough” is available for order in America at this link. To borrow Lia’s favorite expression, “So cool!”

No relation to Scott Joplin

Dick Cavett, who I once met, managed to turn the topic of conversation over to himself before taking a break in this excerpt of an interview with Janis Joplin from 7/18/1969 — just one month before Woodstock. No mention is made of Linda Ronstadt, who would soon take the mantle of “leading lady of Rock.” Cavett asks Joplin, “Are there any male groupies?” To which Janis replies, “Not near enough.”
