Happy Birthday Janis Joplin!

In celebration of twenty seven amazing years of life.

Janis leaves a legacy and impact in Blues, Rock, and American
culture that is so vast it is difficult even to fully describe.

The music and life of Janis Joplin will be remembered and
celebrated for generations to come.

18 Live video playlist in her honor.

Although I literally wore out her LP's playing them, I never saw her perform, nor, before tonight, have I watched videos. Haven't quite made it all the way through them yet, CBV, but am going back to finish after this post.

Musically, I had always thought her an old soul in a young body. Watching her, it is more like an old soul possessed her when the mic was in her hand.

Thanks for putting up the videos and posting the link here.

Neat gal. I met her at the Newport Folk Festival in 1967 or 1968--don`t remember. She left a bottle of Southern with us (John Strike, John Crowdog and Henry Crowdog) and alleviated terrible hangovers in three of us. Personable, friendly and kind. I don`t know where you`re at now, Janis, but this old boy never forgot you.

To see Janis in action a scant two months before her death, watch the concert film, "Festival Express."

Not only is she in marvelous voice, but, as Guest,999 states, she's so nice!

I saw Janis a few months before her death. After the show was over, she came back onstage, pulled the piano bench to the edge of the stage, sat on it, and simply talked and joked with the audience for about thirty minutes.

I attended a concert every couple of weeks in those days, saw all the "legends" of the era, and have fond memories of many of them. But that simple act on Janis's part, allowing us to get close to her as a person instead of just a performer, is the one of which I'm most fond.

I saw her perform at University of Michigan, probably in 1969. Very short set. As I recall, Harry Belafonte opened for her.
