I just came across this video clip of Janis Joplin, out front of Big Brother and the Holding Company, doing Ball and Chain, at the Monterey Pop Festival 1967.

I have the CD of the concert, with lots of other artists as well. It’s good to be able to see the artists performing though.

Enjoy.

How did I miss that?

Monday last, October 4, was the anniversary of the passing of Janis Joplin.

Sadly, I wasn’t aware of this until the following morning. Otherwise, I would have played some of Janis’s music during my show on that date.

I do feel quite bad about missing this; perhaps I need to add a calendar of important blues dates to this site?
