gig grab bag: happy birthday janis

January 18, 2013

gig grab bag logoJanis Joplin should be turning 70 tomorrow. In her honor, the first Gig Grab Bag of 2013 is this 1969 performance from The Dick Cavett Show. I like this one particularly because it’s such a beautiful song and no one could interpret a heartache ballad quite like Miss Janis. It’s also great quality video and audio. I, for one, will be watching Festival Express this weekend just for the the stirring candid footage of Janis, Jerry, and Rick Danko on the train…

“Janis, I’ve loved you ever since the day I saw you.”
