Janis Joplin on The Ed Sullivan Show   Arts and Entertainment

Started 12-May by Wabbeet; 444 views.

From: Wabbeet


Janis Joplin was an American singer-songwriter who sang rock, soul, and blues music.

One of the most successful and widely known rock stars of her era, she was noted for her powerful mezzo-soprano vocals and "electric" stage presence. In 1967, Joplin rose to fame following an appearance at Monterey Pop Festival, where she was the lead singer of the then little-known San Francisco psychedelic rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company.

For your time out, enjoy !

That voice -- high, husky, earthy, explosive -- remains among the most distinctive and galvanizing in pop history. But Janis Joplin didn’t merely possess a great instrument; she threw herself into every syllable, testifying from the very core of her being.

Something told me it was over (yeah)
When I saw you and her talking
Something deep down in my soul said,

"Cry girl" (cry, cry)

When I saw you and that girl, walking now

Ooh, I would rather, I would rather go blind boy
Than to see you, walk away from me child, no
