Friday Night Videos

I've been on a bit of a Janis Joplin kick of late, so why not share the love? This is her performance of "Ball and Chain" from the Monterrey Pop Festival, the show that put Joplin as well as Big Brother and the Holding Company on a whole lot of people's radar. I love the shots of Mama Cass in the audience, completely gobsmacked by Joplin's performance. I don't know how much of it was fueled by the prodigious amount of drugs she was doing, but Joplin had an amazing stage presence and threw herself 100 percent into the songs she sang. The moral of this story? Heroin is really, really bad stuff.
