All it took was for me to hear this flame-haired lady's take on Rick Derringer's "Still Alive and Well" and I was a goner. Wonderland is a double threat: on guitar as well as her vocal testimony. Comparisons to Janis Joplin get tossed about, and they make sense, but honestly she's better than Joplin. There, I said it: Carolyn Wonderland is better than Janis Joplin. Wonderland may live in Austin, but her guitar owns the sky.
