Part 2: Janis Ian to Jimi Hendrix (1966-1970)

Unfortunately, Ian -- then only 16 -- never got to Woodstock. But time-travel through the turbulence and tranquility of that era can be realized through many of these tracks.

If you like your folk music disguised as a cynically unimaginative, woefully uninteresting attempt at securing radio airplay, then this is the album for you.
