Janis - Ball and Chain Monterey

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Tb4t0Mxq3J4

as I tell my kids Woodstock changed the world; Monterey change the music. Hendrix (guitar burning to Wild Thing) , Joplin, the Who's real intro to the US. Otis Redding, however, was the one who stole the show and walked off stage as a legend. And of course, Al Kooper was there - always close to the flame. The "Zelig" of rock & roll.

Love Janis! One of my early live shows that changed my perspective, so to say...

Whenever this song comes up in conversation I remind people that this is not a Janis tune (although her interpretation is killer and I love it) but a Gershwin tune and is from the opera Porgy & Bess. They look at me like I'm nuts.

Not nuts but correct on the Gershwin. I think Gershwin was a genius - Porgy & Bess is just one example of this ... Rhapsody in Blue another .

This is one of my favorite Janis songs. She could take a song and make it her own.
Did Janis write songs? I always thought she took others songs and gave them her
signature twist. I still get sad when I think of Janis. Still miss her. She was so funny
on the Dick Cavett Show.

I get some sadness thinking about her, too, Ruthie... so young to be leaving and so talented. I think she had a sad life. Anyway, not sure how much Janis wrote herself (most of the amazing recordings she did were of other's music) but I do know she collaberated. She was co-writer on Mercedes Benz from the Pearl album, for example.

"I'm a victim of my own insides. There was a time when I wanted to know everything...It used to make me very unhappy, all that feeling. I just didn't know what to do with it. But now I've learned to make that feeling work for me. I'm full of emotion and I want a release, and if you're on stage and if it's really working and you've got the audience with you, it's a oneness you feel."-Janis




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. On Saturday, October 3, Joplin visited the Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles to listen to the instrumental track for Nick Gravenites' song "Buried Alive In The Blues" prior to recording the vocal track, scheduled for the next day. When she failed to show up at the studio by Sunday afternoon, producer Paul Rothchild became concerned. Full Tilt Boogie's road manager, John Cooke, drove to the Landmark Motor Hotel (since renamed the Highland Gardens Hotel) where Joplin had been a guest since August 24. He saw Joplin's psychedelically painted Porsche still in the parking lot. Upon entering her room, he found her dead on the floor. The official cause of death was an overdose of heroin, possibly combined with the effects of alcohol.

Joplin was cremated in the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary in Los Angeles, and her ashes scattered from a plane into the Pacific Ocean and along Stinson Beach. The only funeral service was held at Pierce Brothers and attended by Joplin's parents and maternal aunt.




Joplin's body decoration, with a wristlet and a small heart on her left breast, by the San Francisco tattoo artist Lyle Tuttle, is taken as a seminal moment in the tattoo revolution and was an early moment in the popular culture's acceptance of tattoos as art. Another trademark was her flamboyant hair styles, often including colored streaks and accessories such as scarves, beads and feathers.

The 1979 film, The Rose, was loosely based on Joplin's life. Bette Midler earned an Academy Award nomination as Best Actress for her performance.

In the late 1990s, the musical play Love, Janis was created with input from Janis' younger sister Laura plus Big Brother guitarist Sam Andrew, with an aim to take it to Off-Broadway. Opening in the summer of 2001 and scheduled for only a few weeks of performances, the show won acclaim and packed houses and was held over several times, the demanding role of the singing Janis attracting rock vocalists from relative unknowns to pop stars Laura Branigan (1957-2004) and Beth Hart. A national tour followed. Gospel According to Janis, a biographical film starring Zooey Deschanel as Joplin was scheduled to begin shooting in early 2007 but was postponed indefinitely.

In 1988, the Janis Joplin Memorial, with an original bronze, multi-image sculpture of Joplin by Douglas Clark, was dedicated in Port Arthur, Texas.

Joplin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, and was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. Among the artifacts at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum Exhibition are Joplin's scarf and necklaces, her 1965 Cabriolet Porsche with psychedelically designed painting, and an acid sheet designed by Robert Crumb, designer of the Cheap Thrills cove.

Hey Kenny, thanks for the info. The last time I heard anything about a movie, Renee
Zellwinger was supposed to play Janis. Bett Midler couldn't do justice to Janis and probably nobody else could either. I've been hearing about a Janis movie for over 30 years and they
still haven't made one as far as I'm concerned.

There has also been talk of people like Joss Stone in that role but haven't heard much about any progress on that project.

Kenny - you mention Paul Rothchild in your post. I met him in the 70's when I was living in Chicago and we went out a few times. And he gave me Janis's recipe for Pina Colada's

Of course, "The Rose" was based loosely on the life of Janis Joplin. If she ever gets her own movie I hope it casts her in her true light, which is one of a VERY bright person. She had a lot of impact on things other than music. I doubt she was any more wild and crazy than most other musicians at the time, but you know how things always get spun.

Really? Paul Rothchild from Elektra Records? He's the one who is responsible for Mike Bloomfield becoming a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. A VERY wise move!!

By the way, I LOVE Janis!! She gave so much and left it ALL on stage. No one can compare to her performances. Wish there were more like her.

Yep, that's the guy! He worked with quite a few great musicians - Janis, Paul Butterfield, Doors, Joni Mitchell, Tim Buckley, CSN, Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt among them. He was also responsible for the soundtracks for The Rose (for which he was nominated for an academy award) and The Doors (the movie - in which he was portrayed, although I can't remember by who).
