I only saw her once....with Full Tilt Boogie. It was a great show, at The Forest Hill Tennis Stadium. Although I wish I had seen her with Big Brother, I was not dissappointed.

I'm am glad I got to see her, as it was not too much later that she was gone.

She was one of a kind.

Never got to see her live; but agree with you about Big Brother vs Full Tilt. As I always tell my son - Fult Tilt has Keyboards and polish; Big Brother screetching guitar and primitive intensity

I got to see her live, IP - for free (nice thing about having a best friend whose dad is a disc jockey ). She was amazing! And she and her band ended up at a local party which I've been told was pretty crazy.

I can't help but wonder about Pearl ... what her life, her art would have been had she not left us so soon...

Doing some research Joplin actually played Forest Hills twice, once in 1969 and the other in 1970.

I was at the 1969 show. Richie Havens opened. She was wonderful. I remember the song "Work Me Lord", a performance of which was eventually included in the director's cut of the Woodstock movie. The only reason I remember it was that during the part of the song where Janis is vocalizing by herself, making an extended plea for her lover not to leave her, a voice from the upper reaches of the stadium yelled out, "I won't leave you Janis" and the whole place broke up, including Janis.

BTW, for the 1969 show she was with the same band she would play with at Woodstock a short time later- the Kozmic Blues Band (lots of horns). By the 1970 performance it was the Full Tilt Boogie Band accompanying her.

Same here -- if this is more of what is hinted at on Cheap Thrills, will be all over this one

I saw her once, for free, on the very first day of my very first job. I was a 17 year old secretary hired by ABC TV and they gave us a studio tour. She was rehearing for the Dick Cavett show. I only saw one song (I think it was Tell Mama) and then she walked off stage in full Janis regalia with a bottle of Jack slung over her shoulder.
Remembering going to see Jethro Tull that same night at Central Park.
Anyway, talents like Janis, Jimi, Jim, and Duane were all so spectacular at such a young age, it seems like God put them on this earth to give us something so awe inspiring, so enduring that He didn't want to give us too much and then He took them away, leaving behind legacies that are larger than life.

Yep, saw her at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in Forest Hills, Queens, NYC with the Full Tilt Boogie band.
Pretty explosive and dynamic from the little I could faintly remember.

What I do remember more vividly was before showtime, Janis strolled under the stadium stands through the crowd. Everybody gave her space and respectfully greeted her. Very cool.

I also saw her sing three songs at Shea Stadium at an all day "Peace" concert. These were her last NYC appearances before she died.

She certainly knew how to belt out a tune!
