The last recordings Joplin completed were "Mercedes Benz" and a birthday greeting for John Lennon ("Happy Trails", composed by Dale Evans) on October 1, 1970. Lennon, whose birthday was October 9, later told Dick Cavett that her taped greeting arrived at his home after her death

Only time I saw Janis perform was on the Dick Cavett show. It was the first day of my first job - August 1970. I was a secretary at ABC-TV and they took us on a tour of the studios and there she was up on the stage singing Tell Mama and swigging Southern Comfort.
I also got to see Susan Lucci that day but who cares.
Thinking that some people just aren't meant to grow old - Janis, Jimi, Jim, Duane, Berry, Buddy. Marilyn, even. Maybe they're just put on this planet to knock us out with their God given talent and then pass on, staying forever young and leaving behind an unmatched legacy.

Many have imitiated her but no one has come close to duplicating her raw talent.
She was a great one and has made a lasting imprint on female vocalists.

I saw Janis twice.


Janis Joplin at the Summer Festival for Peace, August 6, 1970.

1. "The Festival for Peace was an all day concert event produced at Shea Stadium in Queens, NY on August 6, 1970.
It was the second event of a series planned to raise funds for anti-war candidates in the early 1970's.
The date selected for the Summer event was of particular interest as it was also the 25th anniversary of the U.S. first use of an atomic weapon in the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945 in World War II.
The concert, advertised as the Summer Festival for Peace, was scheduled for 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM although several last-minute performers and extended sets added about two hours. Seating was General Admission by tier in the stadium.

Very little media has survived and no film of this concert has surfaced publicly despite the fact that it featured such historic performers as Janis Joplin, Paul Simon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Steppenwolf, The James Gang, Miles Davis, Johnny Winter, Herbie Hancock and a dozen other important acts of the period.
The Festival for Peace was the first major concert at Shea Stadium since the last performance of The Beatles in 1966.

It proved to be one of the last performances for Janis Joplin who died only two months later, as well as a reunion and last performance with her former band, Big Brother & the Holding Company.

When the concert was first announced, Joplin was not scheduled to perform, but Big Brother was on the bill. She was in NYC to do two appearances on Dick Cavett's television show with her new band (Full Tilt Boogie) and decided to perform with her former band while in town.
During the August 3rd appearance with Cavett, Joplin announced her intention to play at the Festival, spoke of the show and described the concert as being produced by Peter Yarrow (of the singing group Peter, Paul & Mary)."

2.1970 August 2 Sunday Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, Queens, NYC. just 10 days before her last show. The poster shows Saturday. The show was postponed to the next day due to rain.

Janis and Full Tilt Boogie play at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium on 8/2/70 (I think), and I was lucky enough to be there, in the third row. Words cannot describe a live Janis show, so I won't even try...but it changed me from a casual fan to a big fan.

And she was gone way too soon...

Just saw that car up close at the Grammy Museum at LA Live in Los Angeles this last weekend. They are doing an expo on Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison. It was a great thrill to be standing next to that car. It looks just like the picture.

Janis was truly one of a kind, no one has come close to performing with the sheer raw passion and soul that she did, she left it all on the stage. RIP Pearl

Janis Joplin's '69 show at the Civic Arena was a raucous affair from start to finish

From backstage to onstage, her 1969 concert had Civic Area management ready to hit the roof

On Nov. 2, 1969, Janis Joplin made her Pittsburgh debut at the Civic Arena. It would be her first and only concert here, as she died Oct. 4, 1970 -- 40 years ago tomorrow.

In one of an occasional series, former concert promoter Pat DiCe­sare looks back on an unforgettable night with the rock legend.

I was not yet four when she died but she touched my life. And I suspect she will be touching lives a century from now.

A bad batch of heroin killed her and around 20 other people that day. Too bad. Maybe she would have kicked the habit and straightened out like so many others from that era. She had so much more to give.

Also saw Janis at Forest Hills but it was in 1969 and shortly before Woodstock. Richie Havens opened. Her backup group was the Kozmic Blues Band. The highlight of the evening came as she was doing a pleading vocal solo during "Work Me, Lord" (also in the Woodstock movie), begging her man over and over not to leave her, when from far out in one of the upper decks some guy yells out "I won't leave you, Janis". The whole place, including Janis, just broke up. Miss you, Pearl.

It amazes me that people who post on this site have seen so many legendary shows my first concerts were as 13 year old in 1978 and I feel I have missed so much by not having been born 15 or 20 years earlier.

I remember Sept/Oct. 1970 very well, losing Jimi & Janis, a very sad time for music. Her Full Tilt Boogie Band included a "neighbourhood hero" Brad Campbell from Mississauga on bass and Stratford Ontario's John Till on guitar. Richard Manuel of The Band, who was from Stratford as well, probably turned Albert Grossman onto Till as they both had gone through the Ronnie Hawkins roads scholar program. John Till still plays around SW Ontario but have not seen him in a while.
