Been thinking about Janis lately. She is one of my all time favorites from that era of music. What I like was that she was popular because of her talent and not her looks. Any way guess I'm going to bust out Pearl today and give it a listen. Anybody here ever get to see her live? Also is the Woodstock Experience album of hers worth getting or is the production not good like the Santana one?

Just for the record, Mike Bloomfield plays guitar on many of the tunes on her Kozmic Blues album. Although not noted on the liner notes (he was under contract with Columbia), his playing is superb and deserves an honorable mention. This is my favorite Janis LP.

I think Janis was one of the most sexy performers ever . Her delivery was so raw and so sensual, she didn't need to look like Taylor Swift. I love watching footage of her performing.

Edit: Besides that, Janis was not a creation of Music Row. She created Pearl all on her own.

well, since my name got mentioned I did see her 3 times that I can remember, first atl pop, ga tech (I would assume hophead was there) and woodstock & I was a big enough janis fan but all three times I saw her all I could think was that she was so out of it and out of synch with the band that I wasn't impressed at all. sorry. I told this to somebody and they replied that the band members were probably just as out of it those nights, and that could be true. A buddy of mine likes to say that she saw janis out in the crowd climbing on the scaffolding during the atl pop festival.

there's a pretty good dvd of big brother and the holding company that has some video of the recording session for "summertime" but of course it's only a couple of minutes, then they go on to something else--would have been nice to see the whole thing. also good interviews with the members of that band that gives some idea of what it was like for them to start off with a chick singer and wind up being Janis' backup band! that wasn't what they had in mind at all...

Saw her in 1969. It was a revelation!
